A qualified garden designer based in Reading, Berkshire.

I am a qualified garden designer based in Reading, Berkshire offering a complete design and build service, from initial consultation and preparation of client brief, through to site survey, outline plan and the physical completion of the project.

My aim is to interpret clients' wishes, translating them into original, workable and modern gardens that retain an open, spacious feel, appropriate to the style and architecture of the house and relating to the character of the site. Typically my designs have a contemporary feel, with uncomplicated outline plans based on a simple geometry, within which the various required garden elements can be placed. Carefully selected plants and trees bring the designs to life, adding movement and interest through the seasons.

Initially studying horticulture at the Berkshire College of Agriculture in Burchetts Green, I worked for several years landscaping and planting a large estate in Purley-on-Thames, before forming my own landscape gardening company in 2001.

Following further studies in design at Merrist Wood College I now combine practical experience with sound design principles to provide clients with a professional and conscientious service.
