I have been designing, landscaping and planting gardens in south east England for over 25 years, having previously worked with responsibility for gardens such as The Italian Garden at Hever Castle and Glynley Manor in East Sussex.
Country garden style informs many of the commissions that I undertake.
However, the past two decades have seen both a veritable explosion in the availability of natural stone with its rich variety of tonal range and texture; together with plant breeders having extended the available planting palette in exciting ways.
Piet Oudolf from Holland, Ernst Pagels from Germany and Oehme and Van Sweden in America have all contributed to developing new concepts in perennial planting.
The ultimate test of success has to be clients who are delighted with the completed garden.
