I am a designer of coastal gardens, natural planting, living walls, sustainable landscapes, water and rain gardens. I am also a consulting arborist on urban trees, specialising in assessment of trees and training in the Middle-East.  I am based near London and work internationally, including Dubai, Abu Dhabi, USA, Europe and Scandinavia.  I work with a wide range of clients: architects, developers, landscape companies, interior designers, public authorities and private individuals.

Natural planting is a philosophy of creating vibrant, harmonious communities of plants which come from similar zones, climates or conditions. Not necessarily native, they create resilient, low maintenance plant ecologies that are relaxed, tough and harmonious. As we enter an era of rapid climate change, ecologies and landscapes must be adapted by us to cope with an unprecedented rate of change.

I'm here to help you...

Please note I also provide living walls from Vertology.
