Creative approach

My approach to design is a balance of aesthetic and practical considerations. As well as creating an beautiful outside space, the garden must also function on a day to day, practical level for all it’s potential users.

I am interested in how gardens evolve over time, as well as how they change throughout the seasons, so these considerations inform my designs.  In the height of summer, nature often takes over with an abundance of colour, growth and life, but it takes careful planning to ensure the garden still looks lovely on a midwinter day.
