I am an Garden Designer specialising in residential gardens throughout London and the South East. My garden style is based around beautiful, thoughtful design with a simple aesthetic and lasting quality, creating a garden that’s perfect for the way you live.
I work closely with each client to develop a space that is not only distinctive and well-designed but meets the needs of practical everyday living, whether for a family or an individual.
I accept residential projects ranging from a consultation to a full redesign. I am happy to advise on design styles, materials, plants, target budgets and time scales. Also, I happily work with architects or can prepare planning applications for all garden related things such as fencing/walls, outbuildings and tree planning in a conservation area.
I offer a structured approach to each project, which is broken down into phases outlined below. I’m very transparent with prices, offering trade discounts to clients where possible. It’s a friendly service, focussing on considered design, textures, plants and how the garden will be used rather than current trends.
I do like to design to a budget, so it is really important that you think realistically about what you want to spend on the garden. The garden can be done all in one go, or in stages, subject to your needs and your budget.
I have long standing relationships with skilled contractors, with whom I work with to deliver garden designs. These contractors include landscapes, tree surgeons, steel fabricators etc. I also have a great working relationship with a range of suppliers (plants, pots, fencing, furniture etc) who can supply can additional things for your garden. My business is built upon successful working partnership.
