My approach to garden design

The needs of people...

Needs can encompass innumerable matters often unique to a particular job. They may include safety, ease of maintenance, relaxation, or sensory stimulation. Every job is different.

the laws of nature and of building...

A successful project will always take these into account whether planning issues, planting specifications, hard landscape features, choice of contractor, costs, maintenance recommendations and many others.

the desire for beauty.

All designed environments should aim to maximize beauty and mitigate ugliness, to increase the pleasure of those who use them.

I see design as a combined effort. I work with you – the client – to enable you to achieve your own particular requirements against these criteria.
