As a fully qualified and experienced architect and a keen amateur gardener it seemed only natural that Catriona would combine her skills with her love, forging a career path that aligns with her values of sustainability, wellbeing, biodoversity and beauty.
Witnessing the need for garden design first hand after designing rear extensions for clients, Catriona initially wanted to offer garden design as a side arm to her architectural business, however it soon became clear that she was in her element and that garden design would become the main focus of her business.
It is clear that Catriona has a natural talent for Garden Design, having been asked to return to The English Gardening School, this time as a tutor in spatial design and communication. She now tutors for three months of the year on the Essential Garden Design Course.
Her architectural background ensures that her garden designs are sympathetic to the adjoining architecture and her clients appreciate how her experience running large projects means that she is a calm head, easing their stress. They also love that she is passionate and knowledgeable on planting design and seasonality and are drawn to how she plays with plant forms, colours and scents. They especially love how she works collaboratively with them to hone the brief and provide a bespoke garden with longevity.
