Portfolio

Welcome to my Garden Design Portfolio home page.

I’ve been privileged to work for a wide variety of clients covering many different situations, designs and challenges. All of the gardens have been designed to suit the specific requirements of each client, from the choice of materials to the selection of plants, to site specific maintenance plans.

Please browse through a selection of my work to draw inspiration, ideas and enthusiasm for your project. I also have a number of projects on the drawing board and this selection of designs will be updated, so keep an eye out for more additions.

For more information, and to talk through your garden design project, please get in touch and we can start to turn your ideas into reality.
