Our true love is to bring nature into our gardens, our work continually strives to weave a tale of connection to the earth. Celebrating horticulture, plants, people and ecology. We strongly believe that creating beauty through careful design is an essential part of ecological restoration that is so needed in these times.
Our style is naturalistic, romantic and free with special consideration given to plant associations and careful use of natural materials appropriate to the local vernacular and landscape culture of the area. We work using organic principles where possible and are more and more interested in how we can use native plants in our schemes to increase biodiversity and the natural health of habitat.
Our design approach is always bespoke, tailored to the client’s and the land’s requirements. We start all our projects with an in-depth study of the landscape and an essential conversation with our clients to find out what they love about the location and their vision for it. With this in mind we then aim to find the perfect balance between the built environment and nature, a space that, created beautifully, can be called a garden – gar’eden – to create “Eden” paradise on earth.
The majority of our schemes are large, rural properties and estates, as well as a number of small to medium size public projects. We do also, on request, work on town gardens. Our particular areas of interest are naturalistic planting schemes, wild flower meadows and scale appropriate re-wilding and ecological restoration. We are currently working on a plethora of projects across the UK and Southern Ireland, as well as projects in Italy and Germany.
