After 14 years in the commodities industry, I have decided to change careers and lead a more fulfilling life by following my passion for plants and design. My current projects include a large community orchard garden for Ealing Council. I also volunteer as a gardener at Petersham Nurseries.

A design for the gardens at Cambridge Cottage in Kew Gardens which is used as a wedding venue.

An orchard garden set within a large park in Ealing, building will start in Spring 2019. The garden will feature meadows, fruit trees, raised beds and plenty of seating to make it a social space for the community.
A medium sized garden with views of woodlands. This design incorporates a sun terrace, a breakfast terrace and a dining area so the family can use every part of their garden.
A sunny front garden in a conservation area in Wimbledon. A period-style tiled path was laid alongside Portuguese limestone paving for a contemporary edge. New walls were built using bricks with an aged appearance that was in keeping with the Victorian building. The palette is an elegant mix of whites, purples and blues with soft yellow bulbs in spring. Olive trees and box balls keep the garden looking neat all year round. Bee friendly planting means the garden is humming with bees all summer.
This large garden in a secluded woodland location has several areas for eating and relaxing including an outdoor kitchen and a sociable fire pit. A large productive area is located off the outdoor kitchen for ‘pot to plate’ dining. The parents want to inspire a love of nature in their children so the planting is bee and butterfly friendly with three meadows that look specular at different times of the year. A large woodland area is dedicated to children’s play incorporating a woodland walk that leads to a hidden wigwam.
