From her studio in Lindfield, near Haywards Heath, Sussex, Heather creates award-winning designs for gardens of all shapes and sizes throughout the South-East of England including London, Surrey, Sussex and Kent as well as further afield on request. Whether historic garden restoration for a period property, contemporary landscaping for a new build or simply planting design to reinvigorate an existing space, she offers consultation, advice, landscape and garden design services for all styles of garden. Heather also works alongside architects, interior designers, builders and landscaping professionals to create a seamless transition from indoor space to outside 'rooms' that sit comfortably with the landscape beyond the garden wall.

Heather studied Garden Design at the world-renowned English Gardening School, graduating with distinction and has trained in Practical Horticulture with the Royal Horticultural Society. She is a Garden Designer Member of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) and a Pre-Registered Member of the Society of Garden Designers (SGD) working towards fully registered status. Heather also has a bachelors degree in history. Together this experience results in interesting individually designed landscapes that reflect modern lifestyles whilst remaining sensitive to historic and local influences and the personal tastes of her clients.

She was a member of the Haywards Heath Strictly Gardening community event organising committee from 2013-15, bringing it under the umbrella of the Chelsea Fringe Festival and her workshop for the 2014 Lindfield Arts Festival was over-subscribed.

She regularly undertakes community work utilising her garden design skills, including creating plans for a sensory garden at a local primary school and a working plan for rejuvenating the school grounds, donating time and prizes to fundraising events for a number of local charities.
