It is not easy to pin down a design style in a few words, especially as each project will inevitably vary widely depending on its use, personal choices of a client, site conditions & budgets etc.
In all my garden designs I try & create a tranquil contemplative atmosphere, where clean lines & angular hard landscaping is contrasted with dense swathes of lush, architectural planting that appears to invade the space. The aim is to create verdant naturalistic landscapes that are made more accessible & relatable by the clear form & structure provided by unashamedly modern, man-made elements.
All elements – spatial, formal, material & planting combine to create a special garden which flatters the senses & welcomes the soul. Gardens where form & function meld effortlessly, that surprise & delight. I am presenting three projects, in the same neighbourhood with similar site conditions & architecture, but varied likes and needs.
