We have designed some amazing gardens in the last five years.  Please wait a moment while the images of them load.
I hope you enjoy looking at them; if you would like to discuss how we can help you please get in touch.

Dinas Powys, Wales

,

My clients live in a family home with a large, well stocked garden.  Between the house and garden was an expanse of block paving which was being built into to extend the kitchen, changing the views from the house and also giving an opportunity to update the paving.  My brief was to create a low [...]

Whitehill, Bradford-on-Avon

, ,

A new artists studio has been built in the curtilage of a stone house on a hill on the outskirts of Bradford-on-Avon.  This garden needs to work hard - in a small space there is a compost system allowing the owner to see the progress of the flora and fauna in the organic matter, an [...]

Somerset Lane, Bath

, ,

A new house has been built in an incredibly interesting site.  The wall forming the boundary of the garden was built for Beckford to ride from Lansdown Crescent to his tower, and the ruins of Catherine's hermitage lie at the rear of the site.  The brief was to create a simple landscape scheme to soften [...]

King’s Road, Kingston

, ,

The garden was neglected and overgrown, with a build up of soil around the edges.  My clients were using the centre of the garden as a seating area as the plants had overtaken the rest of the space.  The side return was a generous size and filled with York stone paving which had sunk.  We [...]

Chelsea Flower Show 2009

Design-Nation ran a competition to choose a designer who would design, source and plant an area of their stand at the Chelsea Flower Show.  The design needed to show off Katy Holford's sculptures and Chris Eckersley's planters.  Rosie's winning design used predominantly British plants, with interesting architectural forms and luscious greens.

Hampton Court Palace, East Molesey

, ,

Working with fellow designer Matthew Childs I designed a fantastic 'Secluded Garden' within Hampton Court Palace, originally planned to open for the Queen's Jubilee in 2012.  Our brief was to create an accessible sensory garden for visitors who currently don't visit Hampton Court.  Matt and I have taken the concept one step further to create [...]

Robertson Street, London

, ,

A small, overlooked patch of Clapham had the potential to become a chic entertaining space.  The garden already had slate tiles which we wanted to keep, and the rest was a brick box with slate chippings - not ideal for a new baby to play on.  We built raised beds to contain interesting, textural plants [...]

Woodcrest Road, Purley

,

A tricky exposed chalk slope outside a semi detached house was transformed into a chic and private gravel garden with lush planting.  The previously sun baked lawn is now a low maintenance, peaceful space with a Judas tree as a central feature.  The drive has been widened and curved to enable easy access, sleepers are [...]

Sydney Buildings, Bath

, , ,

A gorgeous Georgian townhouse backs onto the Kennett & Avon canal and is being extended.  My brief was to create an elegant town garden in which to enjoy the canal, whilst still having a degree of privacy.   A sunken seating area (flush with the internal level of the house) gives space for a coffee in [...]

Gosberton Road, London

, , ,

My clients have a small child and entertain at home most weekends.  The garden needed to be child friendly, low maintenance and to look great - as well as provide space for 8 people to eat and to cook outside.  We built an outdoor kitchen using a Firemagic countertop grill for convenience and a [...]
