Having spent 10 years working as an investment consultant, I decided to follow my love for design, nature & the outdoors by changing career and retraining as a garden designer.

Urban Courtyard

A shared courtyard garden for two flats, as part of a new development. Each of the flats required an element of privacy within the garden, as well as access to a shared garden space. My inspiration for the design was taken from the movement of a flock of starlings in a murmuration.

Wedding & events venue, South West London

Cambridge Cottage is a wedding & events venue set within the grounds of Kew Gardens, in south west London. The client needed a multi-functional outdoor space, for use primarily as a wedding & reception space as well as for other events, throughout the year. My inspiration for this design was taken from the elegant simplicity & strong lines of Cambridge Cottage itself.

Modern Woodland Garden, North West London

The client wanted a garden in which they could relax and entertain friends, with spaces to dine, play garden games & enjoy the views to the woodlands beyond. My inspiration for this design was taken from the woodlands nearby, as well as the client’s love of architectural lines and modern materials.
