Garden & Landscape Designer

imageHi Laara! First, can you share with us a little about yourself?

Principally, I am a Garden Designer working on residential and commercial projects. The majority of my projects are for private clients and each project is individual because often my clients are undertaking extensive renovation, restoration or a complete new build of a property. The individual properties vary greatly from traditional and classic architecture, including grade listed properties, modern and contemporary to an integral combination of the old and new. The garden can be anything from a tiny courtyard to a much larger acreage in the countryside. I often work alongside other professionals such as architect, engineers, interior designers, bespoke house building contractors.

When did you first know you wanted to be a Garden Designer?

I had previously worked in the Arts and TV for 10 years.image etting for me. As a result, I became a passionate gardener and an allotment holder spending any free time I had outside tending to my vegetable plot and flowers. As a creative, I was often exploring new potential fields of work including mixed media, painting acrylic on canvas, sculpture of many mediums including clay, stone, plaster and resin. The garden design was a natural progression aligned with this exploration and the inspiration I received from my gardening passion.

We told her we wanted something to fit in with what we already have. We paid for her design, since she did the work, but it was useless for us.
Months later I found someone else who mostly did gardening, but did some designing. Her design showed a berm that my spouse, a construction engineer (works with dirt a lot) said was going to be too tall in...
