3D modelling to help you visualise your new space!
I have redesigned all different sizes of gardens all over Yorkshire from new build gardens to large country gardens. My clients range from busy professionals to families and retired couples. They typically want space to unwind and dine in their garden as well as to entertain. They want their designer to choose the materials/planting to match their new space and ideas of style.
I particularly enjoy coming up with designs which are a mix of classic and contemporary elements. Often, older properties can be brought up-to-date without losing their period charm.
The clients who come to me often:
feel overwhelmed by a larger established garden;
no longer feel that their garden suits their needs;
do not know where to start with a blank canvass; and/or
have some great ideas but are having difficulty seeing how a new garden/their ideas would look.
This is where I can help. I love a blank canvass but I also relish the challenge of transforming overgrown and outdated spaces into places that people can fully enjoy and manage.
In addition, because I use 3D modelling, I can be confident that the design I present will work. I can also try out several ideas as I work with my clients to realise their garden's potential and 3D modelling makes it all so easy to visualise. I now have an even more photo-realistic rendering software that can really bring your project to life!
I have also helped people with little or no confidence in planting to enjoy learning about their plants and flowers, providing them with new confidence to maintain their gardens.
The end result is a beautiful garden which precisely meets the needs of my clients.
Whilst in person visits are always preferable, I can also offer garden design advice using digital tools such as Zoom, WhatsApp, Skype and email.
I offer a range of flexible services including the following:
Initial consultation Survey (if your garden is large or complex a digital survey can be requested) Concept plan - at this stage your garden is usually modelled Master Plan - a fully scaled and detailed master plan showing precise materials recommended and other industry standard professional documentation ensuring the quality of the build I can then liaise with experienced landscapers to bring the plan to fruition Planting Plan - I also provide a planting plan showing the names and position of plants I can obtain the plants; I plant the plants too if you wish and you can request a maintenance schedule for your planting
Do you need a little help understanding how to prune and care for your plants? I can provide guidance and training.
I apply a 10% discount for staff presently employed by the NHS upon providing relevant proof of employment.

I can also design for contractors and developers and design show gardens for corporate sponsors.
I have relevant insurance and risk assessments in relation to the CDM Regulations and health and safety legislation.
Talks and classes
I am also available to give talks on garden design. I can also tailor talks for groups on many garden design-related subjects.
I love to teach! I can provide courses for those who would like to learn how to design their own gardens.
I love to write for magazines and journals and have written articles for the Society of Garden Designers, Earth Wit and Style Magazine, Excelle and Pro Landscaper.
