Originally a teacher, Catherine worked for a number of years in the Service Industries sector and then started her own business as a Quality Improvement Consultant in the Further Education sector, before deciding there was more to life than writing reports! This led to a decision to follow her passion of planting and design. Catherine retrained and gained a RHS Diploma in Horticulture and Garden Design from Pershore Horticulture College and the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh.
Her background in professional consultancy and quality improvement gives her a special understanding of the importance of working closely with clients on the development of the design brief and attention to detail. This combined with her knowledge of selecting the right plant in the right place and finding solutions to meet the needs of the clients has helped her develop a professional approach to the garden design and maintenance business.
Catherine is supported by her husband who assists with the landscaping and a small team of landscapers and horticulturists who assist when required.
