UK PROJECTS.

I have been involved in many Garden Design projects within the UK and this link will take you to details of some of the most interesting of them.

It will also take you to details of some of the Competitions I have entered - organised by The Sunday Times - together with the results.



JAPAN PROJECTS

Following my first visit, I was invited back to Japan in April 1999 with instructions to prepare a scheme design for an 'English Herb Garden' to be built at a 'Workshop' at  which Japanese participants could get involved in the building of the garden.

My Clients are Mr, & Mrs. Yamakawa - owners of the Umenishiki Garden at Tanbara and also the Umenishiki Brewery.

My contact in Japan is Mrs. Eiko Todo - President of Todo Planning in Tokyo.
My first visit to Japan was in January 1999 when I was invited to discuss a project at UMENISHIKI GARDEN which is on the Southern Island of Shikoku and in the Ehime prefecture.

My instructions were to prepare a scheme for a garden 3.0m X 1.0m in size.
I believed this to be too small and prepared an alternative and additional design which was 2.0m X 2.0m.


To my surprise, my Clients decided that they would build BOTH gardens at the workshop.

When I returned in April,  I was given a day of preparation for the gardens and during this time I Chos
e the location of the gardens, set them out  and - with the help of two Japanese workers - made a start on the construction.
