Having trained at Brinsbury horticultural college, 20 years ago, Michelle was fortunate to start her career working as a designer with the nationally renowned David Dodd at The Outdoor Room. This gave Michelle an invaluable understanding and grounding in all aspects of landscaping.
Michelle built on this experience to then work with the super talented Chelsea gold winning garden designer Stephen Woodhams, designing contemporary London gardens and landscapes.
Michelle now works from her studio in South London, producing designs for private gardens and public spaces across London and the South East.
Her experience and expertise spans diverse projects from an interior garden at St Thomas's hospital, a contract with The Savoy Hotel, a community project in Stockwell, to the more traditional projects of urban gardens and country piles.
When not designing gardens Michelle teaches horticulture and works with schools and charities to provide horticultural therapy for children and adults with disabilities.
Good design should always be about the user and the space it relates to.
As an experienced designer, Michelle can provide you with a safe pair of hands and assurance that the creation of your garden will be engaging, exciting with strong attention to detail and form.
With a strong plant and horticultural background Michelle can ensure your garden will sing throughout the seasons and thrive in whatever soil or aspect your garden may have.
Creating a garden that gives pleasure to you and others for many years to come.
