Aesthetics, science and ethics

"I believe that a garden is a unique art form, many layers of sensibilities combined with aesthetics, science and ethics. It is a demanding discipline requiring style and vision combined with foresight and pragmatism: a designer works with the knowledge that a garden is never static and in a sense never finished. Directly because a garden is alive and changing, gardens are in my view, the most dynamic and positively influential spaces that a designer can work with - requiring modesty in the face of nature, and sensitivity combined with a sense of drama and beauty."
