I believe that gardens are places of escape from the everyday, to unwind, dream and have good times - something we all have come to appreciate during the past few years.

My approach is to first understand what you want from the garden and how everyone in the household will use it and to marry that to 'a sense of place'.

Your garden should be useful as well as beautiful, and designed with longevity and sustainability at its heart.


I provide Garden Design services which can range from a simple consultation and concept, to layouts, planting plans and a complete design package

A sensory pocket garden at Kentish Town City Farm

A Feast for the Senses is recreated as a new Sensory Garden at Kentish Town City Farm, the UK’s 1st City Farm, founded in 1972.

The Farm provides opportunities for educational and therapeutic horticultural projects and is a tranquil space allowing visitors to the Farm to relax and explore the sensory benefits of horticulture and for children to learn about wildlife & growing food.
In keeping with the Farm’s ethos of inclusiveness and community participation, local volunteers and children were involved in the construction and planting of the new garden in a Permablitz planting session.

Sensory Pocket garden at RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival

With a focus on taste and sight, the pocket was designed to carry the senses on a trip through the colour spectrum. 

Ornamentals and edibles combine in rivers of colour to catch the eye. But also, the carefully selected planting scheme utilises plants with a dual purpose, paying tribute to the rich history of edible plants and their culinary or medicinal uses, and ability to excite the sense of taste.

Moreover, the space-efficient, high-density polyculture planting of perennial edibles results in increased soil fertility and soil microbes whilst acting as an organic protection against weeds, pests and diseases.
