"I set up The Gardensmith 24 years ago and love creating beautiful outdoor spaces for my clients to enjoy. Over these 24 years I have come to realise how important a garden is to people's mental wellbeing and happiness. Having lived in South Africa for some years, I have experienced the pleasure of 'living outdoors' and now really enjoy bringing elements of that lifestyle to my clients' gardens".
