Recycled Plastic Otter Holts


It's great to finally see that otters have managed to return to every county in the UK. But as many experts still point out they are still relatively , with quite small fragmented populations across a lot of their range especially in the south and east.…

sparrow-friendly gardening

Since we moved here 4 years ago, we've always heard and seen sparrows in the gardens of a couple of houses further up the road, but never seen them here. Now they seem to have had a good breeding year, and our garden is suddenly graced with a flock of 8 or 9 'overflow' sparrows. I must confess to being very fond of these once-common little brown birds: their chirping reminds me of pavement cafes in warmer climes, and I like their constant busyness animating the garden.

Because they…

Place Vs Landscape

The following is an extract from a recent blog I wrote in regards to the draft NPPF, out for consultation at the moment, in which both within the ministerial foreword and in the text the word 'place' is used, seemingly at the expense of using 'landscape'. Landscape in my opinion is a word that has evolved to become all emcompassing and has the potential to be the 'bridge' across the many chasms that…

Green Room Gardens

This week we have been working in Over in Cambridgeshire, just "over" the river from us being based in Needingworth St.Ives. The client has a new build property and has an unusally large garden attached at the side of the property which was left knee high with weeds and brambles.


So far we have cleared the site and laid a small patio with a recessed man hole cover and laid a shed base. We are about to extend the block paving driveway for them, as well as install some feather…

Long Narrow Garden Design

Hi everyone

I thought I’d write a blog to show the fairly typical design process that I went through recently for my latest garden commission. The brief was for a family garden, with screening for privacy and to hide the children’s play equipment and trampoline. The family also wanted to include a small vegetable growing area and more planting in general than they have now. They liked the idea of a fairly formal style, but with a contemporary feel. The garden is quite long and narrow…

living walls

I'm fascinated by the potential of 'living walls' or 'vertical gardens' to transform the living environment of cities and I believe this could form the basis of a major new 'green' technology in the future if  systems could be developed that are more sustainable and easier to manage than current designs.


 My ideas for achieving this are described in my recent article in an environmental technology magazine  which will eventually be available for free download at…
