I am passionate about creating imaginative unique designs for beautiful sustainable gardens. I take a lot of my inspiration from the natural world around me and I am interested in how thoughtful design can benefit the environment
My background in design and illustration, my love of gardens and my passion for plants and wildlife made training as a garden designer a natural choice for me. It also means that I bring a great deal of imagination and creativity to each design.
I live in Fordingbridge on the edge of the New Forest National Park where I spend a lot of my spare time walking, surrounded by the beauty of the natural world which provides endless inspiration for my garden design work.
I do most of my work in Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset but I also undertake projects further afield across the UK.
I graduated with a distinction from the renowned Garden Design School in Surrey in 2011. Since then I have gained experience designing gardens of all sizes and styles from stylish contemporary courtyards to naturalistic wildlife gardens.
I always consider the environmental impact of a design and try to promote sustainability without compromising the beauty and style of the garden. I like to use recycled or recyclable materials in my designs where possible and choose plants that are suited to the site so they will thrive without the use of fertilisers. I try to design gardens that minimise use of water, energy and chemicals whilst increasing biodiversity and providing support for wildlife. Have a look at my blog page for further information on sustainable garden design.
I want to create a design that you will love and will reflect your personality and lifestyle so I will take time to listen to you and understand exactly what you want from your garden so that I can help you to make it a reality.
