PORTFOLIO OF GARDEN DESIGNS

My goal is to reconnect 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.

RESIDENTIAL SUBURBAN GARDEN

A contemporary garden with lush vegetation. The client wanted to bring the essence of Marrakesh into her garden. This was achieved using Corten steel edged terraces, a Corten steel reflective pool and Majorelle blue tiled areas. The main entertaining area framed with a 1920s inspired pergola, nodding to the client's love of the Gatsby Era.

SKETCH BOOK GALLERY

The creative process involves constantly noticing details when out and about visiting private and public gardens and landscapes. Here are some of the sketches that helped form some of my designs to date. I like to play with perspectives and views and really imagine being in the space itself.
