Dirtscape Dreaming is a unique landscape design and consultancy practice creating personalised and meaningful connections between people and nature, through gardens.
With a passionate belief in the emotional healing possible through a close synergy with the right garden, Betsy-Sue Clarke approaches every client collaboratively towards the end goal: connection. While each garden will be a reflection of the client’s or their group’s needs and tastes, personalised opportunities to reflect and recharge amongst nature will be woven into the fabric of the design in ways those clients will find irresistible.

Betsy-Sue has been a contributor for the industry at policy and planning level for education and health institutions, guest speaker at conferences and seminars, writer for garden media and passionate advocate of gardens for healing and lectures in Landscape Design at Burnley College.
