I’ve been gardening for the better part of the past 30 years and, in 2013, after more than 20 years in law publishing, I decided to turn a part-time passion into a full-time activity, leaving my job as editor of Britain’s longest-running magazine for solicitors.
While continuing to work as a London-based legal affairs journalist, I travelled around Europe, visited gardens, and spent a few winter seasons in the Alps after qualifying as a ski instructor in 2015.
In September 2018, I signed up with Capel Manor to formally train as a garden designer. The experience has broadened my knowledge, opened my eyes further, and consolidated my approach to gardening and the creative design process.
I aim to create spaces that are respectful of their environment but with their own identity, whether they are family gardens or contemplative retreats, Mediterranean olive groves or cool Nordic meadows, formal or naturalistic.
Whether you are just looking for input and new ideas from a professionally qualified garden designer, for a new planting scheme, or for a complete redesign, I can help. Drop me a line using the form below to start with, giving a brief description of your garden and what you would be hoping for:
