Challenging but busy times

Challenging but busy times

With so many people locked at home staring at their gardens earlier in the year interest has become almost overwhelming. Current projects are spread across three counties in locations as far apart as Bath, Poole, Cranborne Chase, Ringwood, Shaftesbury, Tisbury and Iwerne Minster. The challenging range of soils I am working with ranges from chalk to clay and in Ringwood eight inches of very sandy loam lies over pure orange sand, even though the location lies well above sea level. Well, I always cherished variety - so Vive la difference!

I also find myself working on dramatically different styles from soft naturalistic to clean modernist, and everything from the restoration of a large pond to outdoor kitchens, swim spas, beach front gardens and countryside estates. Here are a few mood boards for some of the more contemporary projects..
