Whilst benefiting from early training in her parents' garden, it wasn't until Alison had a garden of her own that she realised her deep interest in creating beautiful gardens.

Following her passion for horticulture she trained for 4 years in horticulture and garden design, gaining a National Diploma in Garden Design at the prestigious Capel Manor College.

A creative background in 3D design and exhibition design, an early flare for drawing and sculpture, together with a successful career in marketing consultancy help give Alison an understanding of the importance of working closely with clients and providing a professional approach to garden design, ensuring the smooth installation of projects.

Alison draws on influences from landscapes and art from her travels around the world in many countries including Ecuador, India, Australia, Malaysia, Hawaii, South Africa, Zimbabwe, France, Spain, Italy, Holland, Canada, and New Zealand.
