Take visual tours through some of my latest gardening projects and see the flowers come to life. It's also an opportunity to view my personal award-winning garden close up as it transitions seasonally.
This large south facing London garden has a stunning terrace at its centre, with dining and seating areas as well as a wonderful bespoke outdoor kitchen unit. Privacy and shade has been created with the planting of mature trees and the terrace also has a sense of enclosure, thanks to the full planting style in the beds that surround it. There is also a gorgeous secluded fire bowl area that leads to the impressive garden room.
This vast garden is divided into three distinct areas for every member of the family to enjoy. Featuring a wide dining terrace for entertaining, a generous stretch of lawn for fun and games, and a secluded seating area complete with fire bowl, this is a garden that can be enjoyed all year round.
This low-maintenance, north-facing garden was designed to be an extension of the home, an entertainment space with a light and airy Mediterranean feel, inspired by the garden owners' love of travel.
We created 3 distinct zones in this suburban garden to benefit all the members of the family. There's an attractive seating area and patio to the front for the adults to enjoy without being disturbed by the (now partially hidden) kids' trampoline at the rear of the garden. Our final zone is dedicated to the family's pet rabbits, with plenty of space for them to stretch their legs.
This lengthy suburban garden gets the Distinctive Gardener treatment as it flows seamlessly from the spacious kitchen diner. The space is broken up into four specific zones that provide areas for relaxation and entertainment, with a secret summerhouse and BBQ area to the very rear.
The brief was to create a garden that would reflect the classic and contemporary interior design of the owner's wonderful home. The visitor enters the garden via a wide limestone path, edged with Cotswold buff gravel that gives an even greater sense of width to the path. A contemporary shaped path takes the visitor on a journey past two rectangular beds that are planted for year-round interest.
This front garden was designed with a theme of circles and curves, which were reflected in both the landscaping and the planting. The large curved main path, which uses traditional materials to reflect the property’s Edwardian façade, takes the visitor on a journey past beds planted with evergreen structure and year-round colour.
Still bursting with colour and interest, my October garden is enchanting- even this late in the season. Here I also revisit and compare how the North Facing London Garden with a Circular Lawn and the Contemporary Courtyard Garden have developed and evolved thanks to the distinctive planting and design.
