Associate Designers

In addition to our in-house design, we have also installed gardens for the following independent designers.

The gardens of trained landscape architect, Tirzah Stubbs, are defined by attractively simple architectural structures overlain with soft

planting which gives each project its individual character…

She believes a garden must relate to its environment, the broader landscape, the style of the house and importantly, must reflect the

aspirations of the client.
