A Professional Service
I grew up with a love of gardening I inherited from my parents and grandparents. I am sure that gardening is what kept my grandfather going into his nineties. I trained as a gardener at Wentworth Castle Gardens, and in addition to courses in garden design, have also studied organic vegetable growing. I am a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers.
I like to work collaboratively with my clients to ensure that I understand their needs and visions and design the garden they want at a price they can afford. I am passionate about what I do and encourage others to get involved in their outside spaces and make the most of them.
Prior to gardening I worked as an Occupational therapist and also managed a horticultural therapy project on an allotment. I am a fervent advocate of the health benefits of gardening, both mental and physical, and love to teach clients how to take care of their own gardens. Having worked with the elderly, stroke victims and people with physical and learning disabilities, I also have experience in adapting environments to suit clients’ physical limitations,
