We believe that landscapes and gardens should inspire, delight and sit comfortably in their setting. We have a strong understanding of how gardens can make us feel and how beneficial our response to the landscape can be and believe that a well-designed garden can have a wonderfully positive impact on our well-being.
Spatial design is at the heart of all great gardens and it is a particular passion of ours. We pride ourselves on our creativity, attention to detail and the craftsmanship that goes into each of our gardens from the hardscape detailing and our choice of materials to our tailor-made planting plans. Our ambition is to achieve pared-down design with strong detailing where ideas, threaded throughout the space, give the garden a sense of rhythm and balance.
All of gardens are bespoke to our clients’ needs and are designed to reflect and enhance the location and retain a strong sense of place. We spend time establishing the brief for each garden project and enjoy taking our clients with us on a creative journey where they can take ownership of the design solutions.
We have received a number of high-profile awards for our work, including recognition from the Society of Garden Designers (SGD), the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). Our work has also been widely published in national magazines and newspapers and featured in several garden design books.
