We love gardens.

Big Gardens, small gardens, box-hedge formal to meadow wild, nature’s rooms are spaces that have a profound impact on our spiritual and emotional wellbeing.  As a Garden Designer and Interior architect I am fascinated by how the designed garden space is really an extension of our interior lives and ultimately ourselves.


Have you ever walked into a garden and felt yourself sigh in delight? It baffles me that some gardens have that magical quality to them and yet are simply a few trees and shrubs, whilst others, designed to the millimetre, fail to inspire. It’s something that relies on a lot of tiny factors, like a puzzle, that come together to create the bigger picture. Sometimes it is impossible to define what it actually comes down to, like a person with intense charisma, some gardens shine brighter than others.


Sympathetically designed gardens aim not only to take into account the existing site but also the interior of the house and the style and lifestyle of the client. Good garden design should aim to create something a more than just a garden. It should aim to ground us yet allow us to dream. It should allow us to own the space and make it ours without ever forgetting that we are part of a far greater wild and wonderful picture.


Your garden should become a space where your lives unfold, a space for contemplation and laughter. It should be a safe haven and yet connect us to the wilder nature beyond, ultimately its unique and personalised spirit should aim to bring harmony and make our lives more beautiful. Our garden is us. Perfectly Imperfect, ever changing and full of Spirit. That’s why I design gardens.
