Current project: garden redesign in Clapham, London

This garden already had a strong layout with some established trees and shrubs, though some of these were diseased and others had outgrown their space. I created a new plan to replace the patio and path, removing unwieldy in-built barbecue and seating to replace with more elegant furniture. The plants largely replaced with a new year-round, low-maintenance planting scheme for colour and structure throughout the year that was less formal than what had been added before. As a bold statement I suggested shaping the overgrown pleached trees into soft waves, turning them into living sculpture.
