Garden Design Services
Like Monty Don, I have no horticultural qualifications, so please dont ask. What I do have is passion, enthusiasm and 25 years experience of gardening.
I have learnt through watching others, including my father in the early days of our allotment, reading countless numbers of books, and mainly through my own experiences, successes and failures.
Over the last 6 years as a jobbing gardener, I have developed, contructed and maintained a large array of gardens (including my own) with differing aspects, soil type, shading, elevation, exposure, drainage conditions, formal, informal, wild, edible, etc.
Some gardens I have taken on and developed, adding to their beauty and practicality. Others I have started from scratch from areas rife with builders rubble and/or full of pernicious weeds.
Whatever the starting point, my priority has always been to firstly get the soil right, increase biodiversity, provide low maintenance and of course make the garden attractive and appealing.
I believe I have been successful in achieving these goals in many gardens.

The fabulous grey, upstanding cones of the korean pine and enormous rhubarb leaves , measuring up to 1m across, usually invoke comment from visitors
