“ A garden must combine the poetic and the mysterious with a feeling of serenity and joy.
 – Luis Barragan

I have designed many private gardens in UK and overseas, and worked on several large commercial projects including playgrounds, parks, housing developments and an airports. 


Over the years my attention has been drawn more closely to the natural environment and I have also been inspired by the principles of permaculture. The natural order is my starting point, as I look at ways of working with nature, rather than impose my ideas upon it. I blend aesthetics with sustainability to create bold and beautiful designs that compliment the surrounding landscape.


My approach is to look at the full potential each unique site has to offer, and to create a space that nourishes the soul throughout each season. Minimal landscaping, sympathetic planting and subtle lighting are incorporated as required, as my aim is for a more naturalistic, rather than contrived, environment.


I offer a landscape design consultancy service for private gardens, public green spaces and commercial site design.
