About Flower of Life
Flower of Life offers garden design, creation and upkeep services. I also offer a garden photography service.
I have grown Flower of Life out of a love of working with clients to create and maintain beautiful yet practical gardens to be lived in and enjoyed. The process of transforming a client’s vision and wishes into form in the garden gives me a satisfaction which drives my work. I have a particular interest in creating smaller gardens in urban settings and I have a particular skill in being able to work closely with clients and to listen sensitively to their requirements.
I founded Flower of Life having trained and having received professional qualifications in both horticulture and garden design and having had several years’ experience both working as a gardener in large, formal gardens and maintaining smaller family gardens.
I have a professional background in natural medicine having received a BSc in Ayurveda and have a long time interest in sacred geography and biodynamic horticulture, all of which have influenced my understanding of gardening and shaped my ethos and approach to how to design and how to look after a garden. You will find several articles relating to this in my blog.
I am based in South East London and Cambridge, though for design, creation and photography work I can travel throughout the UK. Unfortunately I cannot offer a regular garden upkeep service outside these areas.
