After running my own web design business, working as a self employed gardener & working in the charity sector, I retrained to fulfil my love of garden design, graduating from the Oxford College of Garden Design, in 2021, with a Distinction for my Post Grad Diploma. 'For me, gardens are all about wellbeing. I love to create outdoor spaces which help people to relax, have fun and provide a place to get away from the stresses of daily life'.
