About Us

Our Story

Established in 2017, our foundation is rooted in unwavering ethical values, driving us to redefine the norms in our industry. Setting ourselves apart from the mainstream, we embarked on a journey to offer a unique perspective. Proud members of the esteemed RHS Chelsea 2022 Rewilding Britain volunteer team, our commitment to excellence in landscaping is further exemplified through our role as volunteer landscaping contractors for the renowned RHS Tatton Park 2023 "Constructing Minds Garden." Here, we took on a significant role undertaking the intricate planting and soft landscaping, contributing to the garden's multi-award-winning success.​


At the core of our philosophy is the harmonious blend of traditional craftsmanship and an enlightened, contemporary, and low-impact approach to landscaping.

We believe in crafting spaces that not only stand the test of time but also resonate with a forward-thinking ethos.​ Stay connected with our journey by following our Instagram feed, where we share insights into our latest projects and developments.


We take pride in championing local suppliers who share our commitment to quality. Moreover, our advocacy extends beyond landscaping to encompass conservation, social justice, and ecological projects. Keep an eye out for occasional appearances from Whisper, our beloved border collie, as we invite you to join us on this exciting  venture.​

"Each project I undertake is a testament to my commitment to rewilding principles, creating spaces that allow nature and natural process to take centre stage, creating incredible, biodiverse, exciting gardens that challenge the typical garden norms".

Ecologist, photographer and gardener

I have been a lifelong ecologist, photographer and gardener. I was always interested in the natural world and growing plants. ​A BSc in Marine and Freshwater Ecology at London University was followed by a Postgraduate Certificate in Education and a Masters in Environmental Resource Management. Twenty five years followed working as an ecologist, lecturing, doing surveys, practical site management, working with industry, consultancy and charities. ​Having enjoyed that for over two decades, in 2002, I decided to explore a new direction which would allow me to be more creative. I realised that designing and building sustainable, wildlife gardens combined all my skills and experience. So after studying garden design at The English Gardening School I set off down that path and have not looked back.

Our 4 legged staff member in charge of walks, attention and treats. Totally unqualified in landscaping or design but with a level of enthusiasm that is unmatched by any of the rest of the team Whisper is a black and white furry ball of energy!
