I ALWAYS STRIVE TO ENSURE THAT THE GARDENS I DESIGN BLEND HARMONIOUSLY INTO THEIR SURROUNDINGS WHETHER TOWN OR COUNTRYSIDE
MY WIDE RANGE OF COMMISSIONS INCLUDE:-
I trained with John Brookes at the School of Garden Design at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
I am also a graduate of the English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden for whom I have been a tutor on their correspondence course in garden design.
My designs have been displayed at the Chelsea Flower Show and have also appeared in magazine articles.

I am a practical, hands-on gardener and am very conscious of all aspects of maintenance - I always consider the time need ed to develop and care for different styles of gardens.
"The idea of the garden as a rest-place holds an increasing attraction. The tensions of modern life and an entire change in our ideas of scale and of speed have made physical tranquillity a luxury. Repose has become a rarity."
From 'The Education of a Gardener' by Russell Page
