designing award-winning gardens
for over two decades
With a background in fine art and maths, Amanda’s designs combine a beautiful, natural aesthetic with practical considerations so that spaces work functionally and intuitively.
Her designs focus on creating modern gardens that pay homage to both the location and the architecture resulting in gardens with a strong sense of place. With a focus on seasonality, gardens are created using quality materials and naturalistic planting.
Amanda was a terrific garden designer: imaginative, a brilliant designer on site and illustrator on paper; the garden works at scale as well as in intimate corners and we couldn’t be more delighted”
Clients include private individuals, developers and architects, and while most projects are medium to large country gardens she also takes on small town and village gardens and the renovation of historic gardens.
From her office within Parham Park in West Sussex, Amanda offers a complete garden design service including masterplans, planting design, planning permissions and listed building consents, detailed construction drawings and specifications, drainage solutions, lighting design and project monitoring. Commissions for garden designs are accepted across the South of England including West Sussex, East Sussex, Surrey, Kent, Hampshire and Dorset, and further afield by negotiation.
Amanda’s core skills of art and maths, together with a lifelong interest in landscape and the natural world, mean that her gardens are as beautiful as they are practical. So while the design concept is created with imagination, it will also make sense of awkward levels, difficult angles, poor drainage, bad views (or good!), while making small spaces feel larger and large spaces more intimate, and all with a sense of proportion appropriate to the site.
Craftsmanship is key to the success of the works, and designs are usually tendered to talented and award-winning contractors to ensure that your garden is built with precision and skill. Extensive contacts to the UK’s top nurseries and suppliers have been developed over the years to supply you with high quality plants, bespoke outdoor kitchens, naturally filtered swimming pools, award-winning conventional swimming pools, garden lighting and outdoor furniture.
