Client-centered design is at the heart of my business. Good garden design starts with a good brief – and I take great care to listen carefully and find out about your own thoughts and ideas before embarking on any project.
I am committed to making a space work for my clients, making the most of existing assets whether it be plants, views, climate or materials. My aim is always to create unique gardens that will develop into treasured spaces enhancing the lives of everyone who uses them.
Although not original – my motto is ‘Right Plant Right Place’. There is nothing more miserable and time consuming than an unhappy plant – gardens need to be robust and thriving with sustainability and longevity at the forefront.
I am hugely grateful to live and work in Cornwall and am constantly inspired by it’s unique landscape, climate, and wildlife. My design heroes are Thomas Church, Piet Oudolf, Rose Lennard, Adam Woodruff, Dan Pearson, Bernard Trainor and Tom Stuart-Smith.
