Our approach

Every garden design project we undertake is unique and bespoke, and studio founder and lead designer James Aldridge is closely involved with each one from concept to completion. He approaches garden design with passion and conviction and his experience, insights and eye for the unusual never fail to produce gardens of originality and flair for our clients.

Perhaps appearing at first to be simple in concept, our gardens are full of considered planning and meticulous detailing. And typical of any design that is pared back to essential elements, those that remain and the relationships between them become highly significant. We often introduce a strong hard-landscaping design that is then balanced and softened with abundant planting. Yet our use of materials and colour is always restrained, thus infusing a feeling of unity and calm.

Above all in our process we encourage and value a healthy exchange of ideas – a new garden is an exciting creative opportunity which we aim to make as rewarding and fulfilling as possible for our clients and everyone involved.
