Integrating landscape and architecture through artistic design to reflect clients’ personality and preferences


In order to combat the spread of COVID-19, I am replacing in-person meetings with virtual meetings via Skype (the Skype application can be downloaded from for your PC and Smartphone and is free of charge to use). Skype allows me to present our design drawings to clients and contractors, facilitating reviews and approvals. Any site visits, such as taking measurements, are arranged to avoid close contact with other people.Let's work together to contain the spread of this virus.

I hope you find refuge and even some enjoyment in your garden. Stay well!

From small courtyards to full-scale residential landscaping, I work with you to create a distinctive, imaginative, and functional garden design to suit your needs and budget. 

I treat every project as a one-off, see the clients as individuals with their own requirements and tastes, and make every effort to respect the unique characteristics of your site whether it is a conventional lot, a rooftop terrace, or a waterfront property.

“Formal or informal, curved, straight, symmetrical or free, the important thing is that you end up with a functional plan and an artistic composition”
