I use my background in the arts to help my clients visualise their final garden so they can make informed decisions throughout the process.

So many home owners know what they like when they see it, but struggle to visualise it when they are standing in their garden. This where concept and perspective drawings really help.

Drawings also help communicate the design intentions to the landscaper so they can quote more accurately. Better to know these things upfront instead of during construction!
The whole design process is not just a creative one though, all the decisions made throughout the design process are heavily guided by experience in spacial design principals, sound horticulture knowledge and construction understanding.Below I've showed a smattering of projects I've been lucky enough to work on recently.
