Commissions range from small and large gardens in Kent and Sussex to courtyard gardens in London and Rye.
Working closely with my clients, I love to use a traditional-contemporary style when designing using formal elements to give line, structure and year round interest and contemporary elements to give softness and flow to the design and planting. I strive to relate the garden not only to the surrounding landscape but also to the architecture of the house and the spirit of the owner.
I work extensively with local craftsmen such as stone masons, blacksmiths and joiners using local materials and techniques which add greatly to the charm of the gardens. Many clients come back to ask me to work on future projects which gives me a huge sense of pride and satisfaction in the work that I do.
