Garden design Bristol, Somerset & London
I studied for a Diploma in Garden Design and Landscaping at Garden Design School in Bristol, graduating with distinction. I have also taken courses in horticultural propagation and organic gardening.
Before retraining as a garden designer I enjoyed two decades as a producer and project director in creative agencies, and as a trainer/facilitator for an NGO.
I've had a lifelong fascination for insects. Hawkmoth Garden Design is named for an elephant hawk moth caterpillar I almost stepped on a few days before I began my diploma. Close encounters with nature always feel like a gift, especially creatures this extraordinary. It set me thinking that if I could help create gardens that not only bring happiness to people but also provide habitat for hawk moths, then I will have done my job well.
