Small courtyard garden in Oxford
This courtyard garden in Oxford required a rethink, the previous bright colours had faded and it only had seating space for 1. It required a design for more seating space whilst enabling the Client to still have lovely plants to look at from the kitchen.
Garden accessories added extra interest to the garden
This garden in Oxford needed a secluded patio area and shrub borders.

I have designed this garden to flow around the house, providing interest all year round. As this garden is in a particularly windy spot I have planted this country garden with shelter spots and plants that billow with the wind providing interest. This is also designed with troublesome rabbits proving that you can have rampant rabbits and lovely plants.
This was a competition garden at the Malvern Show. We had to paint a picture in plants and I chose to replicate Cezanne. I was delighted to be people’s choice for this competition enabling me to win £1000 for our school garden.
I mirrored some of the formal planting by the house and used the silver birches and curving borders to soften the planting and move away from the symmetry by the house. Creating a lush garden that can be viewed from the house.
This lovely garden has some very mature trees casting shadow and absorbing water. We have slowly transformed the garden from barren borders to luscious shade loving plants in harmony with their surroundings.
A family Garden
This garden was a delight to build as it was an old pub carpark with masses of rubble. We transformed it to family garden that includes a small vegetable plot, a patio area, children’s play area and a gravel garden. The gravel garden takes you into the garden as enabling you to play hopscotch down the path to the rest of the garden.
