Essex & London Garden Design Diary

Katrina held one of her two day garden design courses this week. The “Can You Teach Me To Be Creative?” at the Victoria and Albert Museum was another success, with a student who was doing an internship from France. She knew little of design so the trip to the V&A and the one-to-one teaching from Katrina proved invaluable. After her day with Kat, she said “I would never been able to draw a garden without your help. I am so proud of my progress in two days I cannot thank you enough”. Katrina has opened up some more days in her diary the for short courses for garden designers later in the year.

Katrina also went to see a contact for sponsorship for the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show 2016. Katrina used to work for the gentleman in question and has very kindly offered to help identify potential sponsors for Earth Designs at the flower show. Katrina presented four ideas to him and he favoured the Working Mum’s Garden so the next few weeks will be spent detailing the budget and putting together the planting list.

Katrina has had the pleasure of re-visiting a couple of her old Earth Designs garden design projects this week. The first was for a garden design in Hertfordshire this was a large elegant courtyard garden. The second one was a garden design courtyard garden in East London. It is always a delight to see your babies grow and mature and this is no exception!

Matt went to do the urban courtyard garden in East London. Katrina has wasted no time in putting this design into the studio, and sketches are already running off the production line with a view to presenting to the client in a couple of weeks.

Matt and the Earth Designs build team started a new garden build in Hampstead, West London. This was a small courtyard garden in a gated road. They began the clearance and took delivery of all the necessary materials including the granite plank paving. Work will continue next week when they’ll begin to start laying the paving and constructing a green oak pergola.

Jo has been busy uploading our back list of garden presentations to the blog. You’ll start to see these being published on the website now. This is to show our website visitors how Earth Designs present our garden designs to potential clients.
