My goal is to combine a client’s vision with the specific requirements of their site, transforming imaginative ideas into inspiring and practical gardens with character.

An active love of landscapes, architectural history, art and design informs my work. I have a strong eye for detail and I’m very passionate about connecting a garden with its surrounding environment to create a unique sense of place. I use key features of a property’s character and the nature of the site to inform the direction of my designs; translating them into suitable contemporary or classic styles that hamonise with quality construction techniques and materials. This sets the scene for beautiful plant combinations that provide structure, texture, colour and finesse; bringing your garden to life.

Based in Wirksworth, Derbyshire and close to the Peak District National Park, I am centrally located within easy reach of South Yorkshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and Nottinghamshire.

I have 25 years of design experience with a background in interior architecture and graphic design. I've steered the direction of my career towards garden design to combine my strength in design with my love of the countryside, and belief in the value and benefits of our precious green spaces. I’m very proud to be a graduate with distinction from the London College of Garden Design. I have completed RHS Level 2 – Garden Planning and Maintenance.

Born in Derbyshire and raised in Sheffield I’ve always been mesmerised by the Peak District and it’s striking contrasts. As a child, I was fortunate enough to have the Botanical Gardens as a ‘virtual’ continuation of my back garden and I’d spend hours exploring every inch of the grounds. Today, much of my free time is still spent outdoors; fell running and hill walking with Snowy the Lakeland Terrier, music festivals with family and friends and of course special moments in my own garden. Learning the art of stone carving has been a recent and rewarding pastime. Travel is important to me too and I get real inspiration from unusual places in-country and overseas.
