GARDENER

    The greatest gift my grandfather gave me was a deep love of plants, while helping him create beautiful gardens for my family. This love only grew as the Head Gardener for a Chelsea award winning designer. I adore working with clients to create spaces they and their plants will enjoy and thrive in, working in harmony with their specific needs and conditions. Beautiful gardens should grow and evolve and are sanctuaries that improve our sense of well-being.

     KEITH

      After years of serving as a playground for our children, we decided it was time to transform our tired garden into the cottage garden it was longing to be. Mark listened intently to what we wanted and spent a day getting to know the garden before coming up with a design which perfectly represented our wishes. He has put both his back and heart into our garden. We’ve loved watching it develop and flourish. There is colour and interest all year round.

       TOM

        Mark spent a week putting structure into our garden in France. He was a constant pleasure to work with and his knowledge is astounding.

        ANNE

          Two years ago, Mark started to advise on the design and improvement of a bindweed-filled, out of control garden. With subtle changes of layout, shrub pruning, espaliering fruit trees, heavy mulching and clever planting - selected with climate change in view - my garden is transformed and gives me great pleasure.

           JAKKI & TIM

            Mark created an innovative and exciting plan to completely make-over our rear garden to create a series of ‘rooms’. We are delighted with the end result especially as Mark’s plant knowledge has enabled some areas that we had failed to find suitable plants for to now be successfully planted and to thrive.

            ANGELA

              As I get older and am able to do less, I feel very happy that the garden, which I love, and so enjoy, is in such good hands.

              ELEANOR

                After years of neglect (mine!) Mark pruned my roses last year which resulted in a wonderful display. I was so pleased I asked for help designing and planting two raised beds and a long border. His knowledge is superb and it’s a delight to have him working in my cottage garden. I’m not able to do the work I used to but am confident Mark has the understanding to know what I want!

                SUE & RICHARD

                  The moment I saw Mark I knew we could work well together and I was proved right. He works hard and has a good knowledge of plants and there is never any pressure to ring him for more work. He is very reliable, good at everything – especially pruning – with good advice on feeding and mulching.

                  A garden is a living, breathing part of your home. Maintaining it is as important as the time spent designing it. I can roll my sleeves up to provide continued care and attention to help realise its full potential.

                  How do you want to use your garden? How do you want it to make you and your guests, friends and family feel? I can create beautiful and practical garden designs that holistically answer these questions.
