"I see every project as my own garden, and with time and dedication we will turn your dream garden into a reality."
Ashley Thompson

We believe your garden should be the most important room in your house. Whether it is a cosy balcony, shady courtyard or sprawling landscape, it should be an area you love. A beautiful area for entertaining family and friends, relaxing in the sun or your way of getting in touch with nature.

I have always had a keen interest in all areas of design from 2D graphics to furniture, but my main areas of interest have always been Architecture and the built environment. That is why on after my A-Levels I studied a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at West Kent College, where I specialised in visual communication.


I then decided to improve my knowledge of the world around us so I attended The Nottingham Trent University where I graduated with a degree in Design, Development and Regeneration. A course tailored to the study of the built environment and the ways we can regenerate areas that have become obsolete.


On completion of my degree, I wanted to gain some real experience of how the construction industry works so I got a job working for a local company specialising in ground-works and hard landscaping. It was here I learned how to build everything from large homes to small patios.

After four years I decided I wanted to be creating gardens I had designed so I decided to join the KLC Garden Design Diploma at Hampton Court Palace. I realised very early on that I had found something that I could be truly passionate about. Meeting clients, finding out how they would like to use the space then producing a well designed and practical area for them to enjoy. Having the skills to be able to realise my designs from page to finished garden is an amazing experience.
