By 1861 she had enrolled in the South Kensington School of Art and became a talented artist and painter.

In 1896 she met a young architect, Edwin Lutyens, who designed her house Munstead Wood. She also wrote numerous books as well as over a thousand articles in magazines. Whilst many of the gardens she designed no longer exist, Glebe House in Woodbury CT, USA, Hester Combe in Somerset and her own Munstead Wood remain.
