“Lara designed and created an amazing garden for us which exceeded all our expectations. She interpreted our brief with ideas we would never have dreamed of. We’re now very excited to see our new plants grow next year and look forward to spending lots of time outside enjoying it. Thank you.”
“We are delighted with every aspect of Lara’s work with us. She has a friendly but professional manner and kept the process moving from initial survey to completed garden. She produces beautifully drawn plans and consulted with us to check we were happy while the work was being done and will be keeping an eye on us personally and with a maintenance plan Most of all she is such a talented designer who has transformed our garden into an exciting space for us to enjoy as it grows and matures through the seasons.”
I love creating bold designs that feature an array of materials and textures. A combination of hard landscaping and beautiful planting schemes soften your garden’s overall appearance. Practical and sustainable planting is central to my philosophy and these schemes follow a straightforward maintenance plan, which assures they keep year-round structure and interest. I design outdoor spaces that sit comfortably with your personal style. That way, your garden is a flowing exterior space that serves as an extension of your home.
I began my career in horticulture during several years spent maintaining private gardens in London. I also studied at Hadlow College, where I gained RHS certificates in both practical horticulture and maintenance. The experience stirred my interest in designing truly dynamic exterior spaces. I began a 1 year Garden Design Diploma course at the London College of Garden Design and graduated, with Distinction, in 2015. I’m a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers and was honoured to have one of my projects selected as a finalist in the Student Award - Domestic category in their 2015 Awards.
