My aim is to create beautiful and atmospheric gardens that reflect the personal style and practical needs of my clients.
I have created a wide range of both contemporary and traditional gardens, ranging from tiny courtyards to very large gardens.
Clients have included comedian Jasper Carrott, footballers Andy Townsend and Ben Foster.
My design philosophy is to:
• Use strong structural design
• Utilise clean and simple lines
• Use materials which compliment the house and surroundings
• Offer creative solutions to challenging situations
From a very early age I have loved art and gardens. My first job was working in a local garden centre and then with a ceramic artist. I later studied horticulture at Pershore College and then a Post Graduate Degree in Landscape Architecture at UCE, Birmingham. I have a strong practical background having worked in nurseries, garden centres and for landscape contractors.
My career has been a lot of fun and has included amongst other things radio and television work. I have worked with Charlie Dimmock and Diarmuid Gavin. I have also had the pleasure of meeting Alan Titchmarsh, Monty Don and Andy Sturgeon.
“Susanna attentively listened to mine and my husbands, fragmented, contradictory and vague wish list for our dream garden and turned it into a stunning landscaped design that exceeded our wildest expectations. Susanna strived for perfection and looked outside ‘the box’ to create a timeless, beautiful garden design which enabled us to clearly visualise the finished result. I would also add that her professional and perfected management skills reflect the high standards and buy-in she achieves from builders, labourers and gardeners alike.”
