Design practice

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.

Adam is a plant-lover, landscape designer, and ecologist. His passions are walking in nature, growing vegetables, mythology and re-wilding. He has extensive experience running landscape projects in the commercial, public and private sector. He was one of the original team who founded of Trees for London (now Trees for Cities), Dorset Local Food Links and The Walled Kitchen Garden Network. Adam often uses sacred geometry as a basis to our designs in the land and gardens and as a result has designed several Islamic gardens. He is also involved with the West Country School of Myth with Dr Martin Shaw and is keen to link landscape with the stories of place that have emerged over time and form our cultural link to Nature. ‘I am interested in how we relate to the land through myth and culture, finding how to remember the age-old love affair we have always had with nature.’

“I couldn’t dream of finding a more aligned landscape design team than Adam and Lulu. As well as being two of my favourite people in the world, their connection and communication with the land goes far beyond what meets the eye, which manifests in the most stunning, world class and life enhancing designs. Enormous love and gratitude to you both and your incredible team!!!”
