My approach to garden design

Using a concept to achieve a style delivers a strong and bold design as the finished product. I apply this approach to all my work, which means each project is completely different to the next, ensuring a space is particular to the user. Key principles to desiging a garden or outdoor space are balance, unity and movement which provide harmony and interest overall.


A concept is developed whilst getting to know my client, their wishes and the garden itself. I gather inspirational pictures, visit gardens and search through one of the many design books I have. I am also inspired by my favourite designers and plants:


My favourite garden designers:

  • Tom Stuart Smith - For elegance and outstanding unity of design
  • Roberto Burle Marx (Brazilian) - For such bold and defined approaches
  • Martha Swartchz - For completely unique and unusual conceptual gardens. 

My Favourite Plants: Very difficult to list but here are a few I love

  • Dicksonia Antarctica
  • Muhlenbeckia complexa
  • Musa basoo
  • Cedrus deodora pendula
  • Alcea or otherwise known as Hollyhocks
