Felicity O'Rourke Garden Design
Garden Design, Planting Design and Landscape Design
Inspired by nature, I have a fresh and creative approach to designing spaces that serve both the client and environment best.
Award-Winning Garden Design
Felicity O’Rourke Garden Design is an award-winning garden design business which specialises in designing contemporary, traditional and historical gardens for private residential clients. I also offer design services to larger commercial landscapes including hotels, business parks, city councils .
It is my aim to reconnect my clients to the therapeutic benefits of nature through their own gardens and landscapes by exciting their senses and emotions in a personal and sustainable way.
Being based in Wimbledon, South-West London, I am involved in projects across London and South-East region of the UK.
Principal Garden Designer
I am a RHS award-winning, garden designer, with a diverse background, in science, management consulting and aviation - I worked in aviation for almost a decade as a Commercial Airline Pilot, flying Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s. Recently, the therapeutic effects of my garden helped me emerge from a difficult time of poor health which rekindled my love of nature and my creative spirit and inspired me to follow a path in Garden Design.
I was awarded a Distinction Diploma in Garden Design from KLC School of Design, the accolade of ‘Top KLC Student 2020’ and the ‘Debbie Roberts Award for Vision and Excellence’. My thought-provoking, environmentally-themed 'Eye of Providence' Garden won a Bronze Medal at Moscow Flower Show 2020.
July 2021 heralded my UK Show Garden debut, where I won a coveted RHS Silver Medal for my thought provoking garden, Extinction, featured in the RHS Global Impact Category of Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival 2021. Its aim was to use the 'shock and awe' imagery of a crashed commercial airliner to shock and inspire people to make changes to their behaviour and lifestyles to save our planet and our species from the environmental threat of extinction.
Not only can I successfully design award-winning show gardens but I can design beautiful gardens and landscapes which don’t just look beautiful but functionally meet their needs whilst resonating with them on an emotional level.
