A life with dirty hands…

Born in South Africa and graduated with a fine arts degree in painting, Diana relocated permanently to London in the 1970’s. Influenced by the landscape artists of the European school she brings a painters eye for colour to the garden planting palette.

Our approach to gardens and gardening
Our approach is a simple one. We believe that gardens must have a relationship with their surroundings and the environment. A garden should reflect architecture, exist in context and be kind to the planet. Where possible we prefer to restore and renovate. Most existing gardens benefit from proper maintenance and careful repair rather than digging over and starting again. Where there is a clean slate we work empathetically with our clients to establish a detailed brief and planting plan and schedule.

Our skills and experience
We are expert from plan to build and from maintenance to renovation. We work with town and country gardens, with roof and sedum gardens. We restore, renovate and innovate, and project manage both hard and soft landscapes.Hands-only
