I am an award-winning garden designer living in north Hampshire. I offer a range of services from full garden design and rebuild to one-off consultancy work. I am currently overseeing projects across Hampshire and Surrey which range from full project management to the updating of existing borders. My background in Historical Architecture and the world of Fine Art means that I am especially well qualified at creating gardens for period properties, but what I most enjoy is designing family gardens that will be used and enjoyed by all members of the family.

After a career in fine art, I opened my own private garden in Haslemere for the National Gardens Scheme for three years from 2006-2008, whilst retraining. I have completed Diploma courses in both 'Practical Horticulture' at the English Gardening School in Chelsea and 'Garden Design' at the Garden Design School at Painshill Park, Cobham, where I trained under Moira Farnham and Robin Templar Williams.

I moved my office to rural Hampshire in 2012 and am currently engaged with projects in Haslemere, Shamley Green and Cranleigh, Surrey.

Commented: Front garden, Victorian terrace I think softening the space with areas of planting would improve it enormously. A large classic pot by the front door with an evergreen will provide year-round interest. You don't say if you need thi...
