Transforming City Gardens
I am an award winning garden designer and work in partnership with a host of landscaping companies to bring your dream garden to life. So many city gardens are under used and under loved. My passion is to transform these plots into lush, imaginative and practical spaces forming a seamless extension from interior to exterior. With skilful planting, my aim is for your garden to exhibit interest throughout the year. Lighting design is a key feature in my work, allowing the garden to be enjoyed at all times of the day and night.
The initial consultation fee is £90. This is refunded in full if the garden is commissioned. Design fees are calculated as a percentage of the total budget - I typically work with budgets of £15K upwards.
Once the design is complete, I can recommend a contractor to carry out the hard and soft landscaping. I can also project manage the build – this service is not included in the design fee and is charged separately. Alternatively, you can simply commission the design and project manage the build / installation yourself using your own contractor. I work within London and the South East.
Recently completed Projects
My clients are usually busy professionals and families who have very little time for gardening. The notion of the 'outdoor room' is increasingly popular, with low maintenance planting and hard landscaping, allowing the garden to be enjoyed with minimal up-keep. The materials in my gardens are carefully selected for quality and durability. Here are some examples of my recent work in and around London.

Residential projects include a central London roof terrace and an East London courtyard, both to be completed by 2017/18. I have also been asked to design 5 individual therapy gardens for service users with dementia, autism and learning disabilities by Oxleas NHS Trust.
Grand Designs Show Garden
I was selected to build a show garden as part of 'Garden Designer of the Year' at The Excel Centre in 2014. 'The Family Garden' features three play zones: a seating area which can transform into a ball pit, sand and water-play zones and a suspended seat for reading which can be transformed into a fire pit for the evenings. The garden proved very popular with visitors - it was judged by James Alexander-Sinclair and Kevin McCloud who called it 'Innovative yet practical'.
