I'm a garden designer with a background as a design and interiors journalist.

I gained my post graduate diploma in Garden Design at KLC School of Design in London and in the gardens at Hampton Court Palace.

I am fascinated by the power of design to influence how we feel about a space, often without us even realising it. I always think about who is going to be using it, what they're going to be doing in it, and how to direct the flow of movement. Then I think about plants and how best to bring seasonality into the garden. 

I believe a beautiful and functional garden will enhance your life. If you would like to discuss your garden plans further do not hesitate to get in touch. I am based in Surrey.
