Garbutt + Elliott appointed to advise garden design business

Yorkshire-based businesses Alistair W Baldwin Associates and Colour Your Garden have appointed Garbutt + Elliott to provide financial services for the organisations as they look to change the way people buy plants.

Alistair W Baldwin Associates was launched in 2010 by Alistair and Charlotte Baldwin and in the seven years since its launch it has become a multi-award winning practice. In 2014, the company launched its own nursery, Colour Your Garden, at its Baldersby base on the outskirts of Thirsk.

Colour Your Garden stocks a range of plants not normally available to the public and plans are in place to develop an innovate new website to provide inspiration and guidance that will allow people to design their own gardens and access the plants required to deliver their vision.

Owner Alistair Baldwin has 25 years’ experience in designing gardens and will provide guidance to people looking to create incredible gardens at home.

Garbutt + Elliott has been appointed to provide a range of accountancy and financial services to support the development of both companies as they look to grow and expand.

Alistair W Baldwin Associates and Colour Your Garden owner, Alistair Baldwin, said: “We have grown rapidly since launching our businesses and we have ambitious plans that will change the way people buy plants.

“We take a creative approach to the plants we stock and we are determined to provide people with a fresh source of inspiration, information and guidance that will help them create fantastic designs of their own.

“To help us achieve our very ambitious plans we appointed Garbutt + Elliott as we know its people have the skills, experience and history of helping small businesses to grow. The firm is forward-thinking and has new ideas that will help us achieve our aims for the future.”

Alistair recently developed the highly successful two-acre rose garden at Wynyard Hall Hotel in the Tees Valley and was also appointed to redesign the estate and gardens at Bowcliffe Hall, Bramham.

He is currently involved in the refurbishment and redesign of the gardens as part of a £50m project at Grantley Hall near Ripon and has recently been appointed as the landscape architect at the Lambton Estate.

Garbutt + Elliott partner Jeremy Oliver said: “Alistair and Charlotte have ambitious plans for their businesses and we are pleased to be working with them in what is an exciting period for Colour Your Garden and Alistair W Baldwin Associates.

“We are confident that they will fulfil their aim of changing the way people buy plants and we hope our appointment is the start of a long and successful partnership.”
