Gardens for relaxation and well-being

Gardens are natural spaces where we can be endlessly creative and fill with as much life as possible. Planted with care, they will attract all sorts of wildlife – birds, bees and other insects become part of their lexicon. While my aesthetics draw on many traditions, incorporating a rich palette of colours, textures and forms, my planting suggestions are designed to encourage the essential process of pollination and to provide habitat for a wealth of species.

Being outdoors lets us reconnect with another pace of life. Whether we are aware of it or not, contact with plants and soil has a calming effect. The restorative properties of observing nature is well appreciated.
