Julie Cox

Sussex, Surrey & Kent

I am West Sussex based garden designer, working across Sussex, Surrey and Kent.

I am particularly keen on creating gardens that work with the surrounding environment and act seamlessly as an extension to the house. With a passion for designing gardens to suit the needs and lifestyles of my clients, I come with fresh ideas, but also with a respect for tradition.

Biography:

I have always been interested in horticulture, in part because my grandparents involved me in their garden and my mum was always a keen and capable gardener. I was lucky to be introduced to horticulture at a young age, although this is not the only reason I love it. I am very grateful to my family for opening my eyes to the magic and enjoyment of horticulture at an early stage.

This has meant that in later life I was able to turn a passion into a career. Having spent 25 years in IT as a Solution Architect in the airport industry, I made the decision to change career path, retrain as a garden designer and explore my passion for plants and design.

I trained at Plumpton College, under Nigel Philips and Amanda Patton, and qualified with a distinction in Garden Design. I also studied for and passed the exams to obtain the RHS Level 2 Diploma in the Principles and Practices of Horticulture at Plumpton College.

I then went on to further study at the London College of Garden Design and graduated with a distinction in Planting Design.

Still with a desire for learning and in order to keep up-to-date with the latest trends in horticulture, I am now studying part-time for the RHS Level 2 Certificate in Practical Horticulture.

I am based in Hayward’s Heath, West Sussex and work throughout the South of England. I have a wide range of horticultural experience, and pride myself on my client-focussed, responsive approach. I am particularly keen on creating gardens which work with the surrounding environment and act seamlessly as an extension to the house. I come with fresh ideas, but also with a respect for tradition.

I am a member of both the Society of Garden Designers and British Association of Landscape Industries.
