design . planning . planting
I have a passion for plants and gardens. In 1987 I combined my love of plants, gardening and finding creative solutions in Glorious Gardens.
Since then, I have designed a large number of gardens, domestic and commercial, of all shapes and sizes. I have enjoyed a good working relationship with my clients and designed gardens which are tailor-made to their requirements.
I have a talent for finding creative solutions to garden problems - for example how the house and gardens fit together, parking, fitting in extra storage.
My commissions include:
St Albans High School for Girls
The Jacobean Knot Garden at Hertford Museum which won awards
The Edwardian Cottage Garden at Much Hadham Forge Museum
A study of the Lutyens / Jekyll Garden at Temple Dinsley for English Heritage and The Herfordshire Gardens Trust
I am a member of the Hertfordshire Gardens Trust Research Group, researching and surveying some of the wonderful gardens of the county.
I trained in Botany at Leeds University and worked in museums as a Keeper of Natural History, working in Shropshire, Cheshire and Leicestershire.
"I was delighted with the design and have had many hours of pleasure from working and sitting in the garden and viewing it from all angles."
