Owner and Designer
Having worked for the family gardening business in Sussex Helen went on to graduate from Greenwich University in 2005 with a BA (hons) Garden Design and since then has designed award winning spaces ranging from small plots and suburban family gardens to large country houses, parks and landscapes across the UK and abroad.
Helen gained experience with large country properties under Garden Designer and TV presenter Chris Beardshaw and in Public Realm for various park departments across the South East as well as running her own practice since 2015.
Helen's designs reflect the needs of the client. By using plants and hard landscaping she creates the texture, structure and seasonal fascination of a beautifully designed space.
Gardens should sit comfortably within their surroundings and Helen tends to work as much as possible with the characteristics of the home to create a space that fits seamlessly with you and your family's lifestyle.
Helen works in collaboration with landscapers, architects, gardeners, surveyors, designers and others to achieve carefully crafted gardens.
In 2010, John gained a BA (Hons) Degree in Landscape Architecture at Kingston University and has since been working as a landscape architect and garden designer on projects with varying scales and levels of complexity across the UK, Middle East, and North America. John is a well versed ‘all-rounder’ and enjoys working on concept designs through to preparing comprehensive detailed design documentation.
John carries out a design consultant role and his area of expertise involves making sure that every concept design is translated into a precise suite of detailed design drawings to assist with the construction process under Helen’s lead; ensuring the seemingly smallest of details do not get lost in translation and the design overall is always ‘on-brief’, fit for purpose and stunning.
