Extraordinary gardens
Sustainably crafted

The Wild Gardener designs and makes beautiful gardens that provide a sanctuary for nature and an escape for you


Do you dream of an extraordinary garden?

If so, you’ve found the right gardener. I bring together plantsmanship, design, craft and artistry to create small and medium-sized gardens that are really special.

My gardens bring together naturalistic planting styles, sculpture, and bespoke built elements in stone and timber. They are designed carefully, so they’re as functional as they are beautiful.

Sustainability is key. My priorities are careful resource use, reducing inputs across the life of the garden, and creating rich eco-systems.

For me, a good garden should go beyond just ‘lovely’. It should have something say – whether that’s about you, about your place, or about how we live now.

Here you can find more information about me and my approach to garden design, pictures of my work, and how I’m trying to be an eco-friendly gardener. I work in the Macclesfield & South Manchester area.

However big or small your garden, there are so many ways to welcome in the natural world. What’s exciting is that you don’t have to go all in at once: starting small is a great way to make a difference and there are lots of options to fit your plot.


Now is the time to make your garden a sanctuary. There’s nothing like designing a garden from the ground up to guarantee a functional, beautiful place that’s a joy to spend time in. I can help you with the whole process of transforming your garden.

Dream of an extraordinary garden?


You can make a difference. Whether you have a paved yard or an acre at your disposal, your garden is one patch in the green and pleasant quilt of our island home.

A haven for nesting birds; a feast for pollinators; a retreat for hedgehogs – wild your garden and you grow the world you want to see.

A wild place for nature is a beautiful place for you. Step through your door and immerse yourself in an environment of natural abundance where something different happens every day. Step through your door to find a serene and simpler version of yourself.

Whatever happened at work or on the news, your garden is the escape. A source of endless optimism and a daily reason to be cheerful. You’ve just got to let the wild in.
