‘Designing great outdoor spaces — whether they are private gardens or larger landscapes —  is all about passion……and practicality.  Combining my love of plants and design, with a problem-solving attitude, I thrive on the challenge of bringing everything together to create a space that suits both site and client.

Plants have always been a part of my life; whether they were the vegetables that I grew up on, the cottagey flowers of my mother’s herbaceous borders, or the wild flowers and trees that soften the Devonshire countryside where I now live and work.

I have also always loved design, particularly when it is used to find solutions to real problems.

These two interests have combined to give me a passion for turning tired, unloved, or downright ugly areas into useful, beautiful, life-enhancing spaces.’
