PRACTICE

As my research has developed I have been invited to design and implement these novel vegetation types at a variety of sites across the UK, at scales from the Garden to very large public projects running to many hectares.   My approach to practice is to try to create bespoke vegetation types that are as unique as possible, responding to the site environment and the needs of users. My approach to this work is heavily based on being able to maintain a strongly hands on, longer term relationships with the clients/managers, to input advice on a yearly basis as the vegetation develops. The following are some of the projects that have been commissioned since 2000.
