Below are examples of some my design projects:
Planting design of long border
The client had created a new flower bed of 10m x 1m as a boundary between her and a neighbouring garden. I was asked to design a planting plan with child/pet friendly plants and blackcurrant bushes. The garden already had a lot of cottage garden style plants and the client wanted the new planting to complement this. I chose a combination of dynamic herbaceous plants with grasses in a palette of white, cerise and purple.
Fresh ideas for an old garden, Oslo
After the construction of a new garage, the owner wanted his garden re-designed with new seating areas and fresh new planting. My design created distinct areas connected by new paths in tumbled granite setts. Romantic cottage planting that was easy to care for added colour, texture and seasonal interest.
Town garden, Oslo
This family garden was dominated by lawn and forgotten flowerbeds. Key to my re-design was new contemporary planting and new defined spaces for entertaining and from which to enjoy the sun at different times of the day.
Children's nursery school playground, Bærum
Staff were looking for fresh ideas on how to create a more inspiring space for the children (aged 1-6). My design creates a seamless flow between distinct play areas, incorporating natural elements such as living willow and landforms and offering a sensory planting scheme.
Conceptual overall design agreed July 2018. Phase 1 construction currently in progress.
Long family garden, London
This design brief had to consider a long and sloping space and cater for a growing and active family. I created a journey through the garden and distinct points of interest in all areas of the garden so that the garden was more fully used and there was more of a sense of cohesion between the areas.
Large country garden, Oxfordshire
Extensive renovations made to the barn and farmhouse had left the large 5 acre garden (formally farmland) disconnected with the buildings. This design reconnected the outdoor space with its new home as well as the surrounding countryside beyond. The design reflected and celebrated the heritage and nature of the area.
Clients expressed a desire to have a walled garden so I designed a more contemporary interpretation. Formal clipped hedging and strong grasses created strong forms and structure all year around. This space, in contrast to the wild garden beyond, felt very calm and secluded.
