I am a freelance designer with 40 years experience, from contracts management through to senior designer. I have worked with thousands of clients to help them create the garden they want.
When I design gardens the following things are important to me:
- I am driven by beauty, quality and simplicity
- I like you to challenge me to sort out your garden’s problems and make it beautiful
- I am excited about using Computer Aided Design (CAD) because it helps improve my service to my clients
I have been a fellow of the Society of Garden Designers since 1986, which provides a professional framework for you as the client.
A bit more about me
I grew up on a small nursery spending holidays watering bedding plants rather than kicking a ball about.
Coming from a family of nurserymen gave me a solid start in the industry and I progressed through landscape construction and contractor management before finding my role as a designer.
I was an early adopter of computer-aided estimating, which gave me a better understanding of how to build gardens and project manage schemes. Through computer-aided design I can offer 3D visualisation to help you understand your scheme even better.
I like the outdoors, walking, taking photographs and visiting gardens. I enjoy re-visiting my old gardens, watching them grow and flourish
