WEST SUSSEX BARN CONVERSION
The owners of this large barn conversion property approached Naomi when the property was still just in the planning phase. Initially, Naomi worked with them to model the house, to plan out the ½ acre site and then over an extended period work on the detail of each area.
The site falls into three main sections: the entrance, the courtyard and the main garden area with pool. Each of the sections received individual attention ensuring continuity throughout. Planting for each section was designed and planned, the photos above show the initial section of plants in their first season.
TERRACE HOUSE BIRMINGHAM
This terrace house garden had not seen much attention in many years. It appeared rundown and in need of restoring.
The owner wanted to create an oasis by filling the space with plants and having multiple areas within the long, thin garden.
We are in the process of creating a beautiful urban garden space, with an area for eating near the house and one for entertaining at the sunny, eastern end of the garden. We will be using cottage style planting throughout and modern paving to create more interest in the thin space.
The photos are of the hard landscaping going in. We are looking forward to the day we get to plant!
CHELSEA FLOWER SHOW 2018
Naomi was excited to work with renowned HIV partnership, Cherub, at The Chelsea Flower Show. The garden she designed and built was a platform to help raise awareness about young people living with HIV in the UK and beyond. Naomi’s garden aimed to challenge stigmas and promote the message that it’s possible to live well with HIV, as well as highlighting the search for a cure through dedicated scientific research.
Naomi is an inspiring and thoughtful designer, and a delight to work with. Her design for our 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show garden won an amazing Silver Gilt medal and presented an amazing message about stigma for those living with HIV.
PROFESSOR JOHN FRATER, OXFORD UNIVERSITY
Naomi was excellent in her approach and presentation. She worked with us to understand what we needed and how best to achieve it, even within a limited budget. She was happy to allow freedom and flexibility enabling us to develop ideas with helpful input and suggestions. Work is about to start.
