As a life-long gardener with a passion for nature and the outdoors, Diana has amassed a wealth of knowledge and skills. Through 30 years of practical experience, learning from parents firstly, then RHS training, watching garden shows, magazine subscriptions, and design books, she knows her stuff – gardens are never far from her thoughts. Following a career in teaching, she began designing and transforming gardens professionally in 2016, and never looked back. Her portfolio ranges from small urban plots to large country homes within acres of land.


Diana graduated with a degree in Garden Design in 2020, and brings fresh ideas and expert knowledge to each new project. Being a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers, Diana adheres to their code of conduct to ensure quality, transparency and confidence that every project is handled professionally and to a high standard. She is well informed of latest developments across the industry, and nurtures her professional development through regular training courses and liaison with fellow designers.


Gaining a deep understanding of clients needs and ambitions is at the heart of each design. Diana combines her innate instinct for arranging spaces, with her natural creativity, to develop balanced settings, enabling clients to maximise their time outdoors, doing what they love, whilst cosseted by nature. Through hand-drawn sketches she finds the best solution for each site, using CAD software to bring designs to life. Details are explored and decided, along with expertly curated planting schemes to compliment and enhance the landscaping.


Diana has a strong connection to nature, stemming from childhood in the Yorkshire Dales, and continues to get outdoors daily at every opportunity. She feels deeply nourished by the annual cycle of nature.

In studying and understanding how to choose the right plant for each place, her schemes have impact in all corners of the garden, with layered plant combinations ensuring interest all year. Biodiversity and sustainability are of great importance, so advises that materials are re-used and reclaimed where possible, water is included to attract wildlife, trees are introduced, the majority of surfaces are permeable, and planting schemes are designed to be long lasting, low maintenance and to encourage a wide range of insects and birds in, to support our ecosystems.
