I’ve passed the strict accreditation process for the Society of Garden Designers and British Association of Landscape Industries, showing that I have the high levels of training and skill a top designer requires. I am experienced in providing a complete design service, including planting plans, design of hard landscape and advice on budgets, appointment of landscapers and, if required, inspection of construction work.
The Landscape Institute is the chartered body for the landscape profession, with membership only awarded to those who reach the highest standards in landscape education and practice. As a Chartered Landscape Architect my work is guided by the Institute’s aim to protect, conserve and enhance the natural and built environment.
My experience in designing public projects such as playgrounds, drawing artist’s impressions and planning applications enable me to bring added value to garden design projects – for instance designing gardens with areas for children’s play and advising on permissions required for features such as driveways and walls.
I have particular skills in choosing plants that will thrive in conditions that vary from coastal to mountainside, and for schemes where projects needed to be sustainable and low maintenance. I can help clients to become gardeners and try growing their own food and, if required, provide maintenance plans to guide the projects into maturity.
