Kate Roberts

I love to create designed environments, places that entice and engage people to step into and experience imaginative and incredible spaces that work practically, delivering to brief and budget.

When I graduate from LCGD in 2021, I’m looking to both design gardens independently and also to collaborate with other designers, using my skills from 20+ years in London’s design and branding industry, combined with my new abilities and passion for garden design in all it’s creative potential.

I am comfortable designing both small and large scale gardens and, having previously enjoyed designing brand events, I am particularly interested in show gardens, for their sense of theatre, team and the excitement of delivering for a live event.

Projects

'ROCKY FLOW' Buckinghamshire

A design for a suburban and slightly overlooked garden in Chesham Bois, Buckinghamshire. A bold solution to create greater privacy and at the same time a feeling of expansiveness and scale: Fire, boulders, gravel, bocce, entertaining. A garden that is sustainable in its ease of maintenance and limited need for water. A place that encourages wildlife and feels connected to the sublime natural world.

'WOOD RINGS' CAMBRIDGE COTTAGE, KEW

A concept, design idea and masterplan for a public venue within the ground of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew. Taking inspiration from the church font at nearby St Anne’s church on Kew Green, a concept evolved using wood-rings as an analogy for the meanderings of a lifetime journey and the experiences that might have brought people to this location to celebrate or remember.

'SECTIONS & CONNECTIONS', WINDSOR

A garden inspired by the long views of royal parks and gardens with glimpses through to different areas. Creating intrigue and a useable family space that is sectioned into zones for a variety of uses and vibes: A ‘Growers Courtyard’, ‘Calm Reflections’ water, a productive area and ‘Woodland Hideaway’ transform this long garden with a design that pivots off a favourite Beech tree.
