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.

Felicity O’Rourke Garden Design 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 Designer

With a BSc Honours Degree in Biochemistry at Bristol University, I became a Management Consultant before I went on to pursue a career as a Commercial Airline Pilot, flying Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s for many years.

In more recent years, my garden provided me with a therapeutic way to emerge from a difficult time of poor health. It rekindled my love of nature and my creative spirit and inspired me to follow a path in Garden Design.

In 2020, I was awarded a Distinction Diploma in Garden Design from KLC School of Design. I also won 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. I have now been awarded a prestigious show garden place at a major UK garden show and I’m hoping that my design will 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.

I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to reconnect with the living natural world in such a creative way. My goal is to give others the same opportunity, by designing gardens and landscapes which don’t just look beautiful but functionally meet their needs whilst resonating with them on an emotional level.
