Family gardens

Family gardens offer one of the biggest challenges in design: how to give interest and excitment for children while still creating a space that is stylish and beautiful for adults. Too often family gardens become either nothing more than a holding pen for the kids toys or a 'grown up space' with very little to entice children outside.

I work closely with families to understand what every member needs from the space, not only in the short term but also as children get older and their interests change.  And you can be sure that the finished garden will not only be wonderful to look at, but will also reflect the practicalities of family life.
