About Penelope

Llevelo Garden Design was founded by Penelope Walker who had been working as garden designer for many years. Penelope’s ethos is very much client orientated and she enjoys the variety of design requests and challenges that she is presented with. Penelope has long had a deep passion for being outdoors, plants and design so a career in Garden and Landscape Design was a natural calling.

After graduating from the English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London, Penelope spent a year working at The Place for Plants; a highly reputable independent Plant Nursery selling an everyday and unusual plants from perennials to shrubs and trees.

Penelope’s strength lies in her spatial awareness and ability to make a space fit for purpose as well as beautiful and reflective of its setting. Her particular passion is for gardens that promote wellbeing or 'Relaxation Gardens'. At The RHS Cheslea Flower Show, Llevelo was awarded five stars for their 'Calm and Wellbeing' garden for Hartley Botanic.

"The health benefits of being outdoors are well known and I enjoy taking this one step further in all of our garden designs by transforming them into truly relaxing spaces"

With extensive experience of listening to clients needs and delivering quality work, Penelope has vast knowledge of what is required to design and implement a range of gardens and landscapes as well as a real eye for style.

I cannot thank Penelope enough for our garden design! Her eye for detail, natural flair and passion for her work was truly amazing and we are so delighted with the final result.

MRS KENNY | IPSWICH, SUFFOLK

From our first meeting with Penelope she was very much in tune with our requirements having spent a good amount of time listening and providing ideas. From this she produced a design that we were delighted with.

I consider myself to be quite fussy but I could not fault her approach and attention to detail which was first class.

For a professional and quality service look no further.

MARK HART | WOODBRIDGE, SUFFOLK

I would highly recommend Penelope of Llevelo Design. From the initial concept to completion her work was professional & always responded promptly to all queries. She interpreted my ideas perfectly & produced a design which has resulted in a small but beautiful & peaceful sanctuary for myself & the wildlife.
