I think of myself as an enabler, to help anyone who is making their garden and home the success that they want. We begin by walking around, listening and talking, listening to the place itself and ideas will flow. As pictures are so evocative, I find that looking at photographs and books give inspiration for the potential and possibilities of any place, and gain more insight into what can be done. Choices, options and possibilities are discovered, some used, others thought about and then put to one side and gradually a plan is made.
Every place has its own feel and presence, and then we bring in our own particular taste and style to an established old garden or a new one, opportunities are there to be found and valued, or missed and lost.
