I graduated from the LCGD Garden Design Diploma in 2019 with a Distinction and the ‘External Judge’s Prize’ for my final project, an award given by Adam White, then President of the Landscape Institute.
Since then, I was a finalist at the Society of Garden Designers Awards 2020 and my design for a school garden in South London won the LCGD Graduate Competition 2020.
I have also been gaining valuable experience working for other garden designers and have set up my own garden design business – please see the links below.
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.
A large family garden in the Chilterns with beautiful views over the neighbouring valley. The outdoorsy family had multiple wants & needs, including a kitchen garden, spaces for relaxation & entertaining, as well as play & adventure spaces for the children, and of course a desire to make the most of the outstanding views at the end of the garden. My inspiration for this design was taken from the Chilterns Landscape, and the work of artist Christine Bass – my intention was to breathe new life into the space and make it one that works for the whole family.
An 8 acre estate in south London with spectacular views across the surrounding farmland. The owners, a couple in their fifties with grown up children, wanted to breathe new life into the tired-feeling site, to create new habitats for wildlife as well as spaces where they can work, dine, entertain & relax. My inspiration for this project came from my love of nature & my desire to create gardens & spaces that allow a better connection with the natural world in our day to day lives.
