Creating your dream garden is all about working with you to tailor your vision. No matter how small or challenging, every space has the potential to become a beautiful setting that you’ll love spending time in.
Each garden is unique and bespoke to your needs but I believe that gardens should also inspire, delight and play a role in our homes and our wider community. Gardens should be seen as an extension to our homes and by crafting spaces that fit in with your life, gardens become areas that are enjoyed by all.
Embracing my Australian upbringing and Greek heritage, my lifelong passion for gardens, nature, food, and the outdoors has paved the way for my journey into garden design. Growing up, my parents instilled in me the art of cultivating fruit and vegetables, complete with our own flock of chooks. The garden served as a dynamic space for play, family events, and even a source of pocket money through lawn mowing. These formative experiences have fueled my ambition to design and nurture gardens, driving me to:
- Collaborate with clients to bring their dream gardens to life.
- Recognize our responsibility in caring for outdoor spaces.
- Foster connections among friends, families, neighbors, and communities.
- Educate and share the joy of gardens and gardening.
- Contribute to wildlife conservation.
- Cultivate our own food.
Upon relocating to the UK after a successful 20-year career in fundraising, I felt a deep yearning for a more creative path. Retraining at The British Academy of Garden Design marked a pivotal moment, leading to the establishment of my studio. My prior career equipped me with invaluable skills – from attentive listening and logical thinking to effective communication and project management. Now, I blend these skills to transform your early dreams for a beautiful garden into a tangible reality.
Revitalise your garden with a fresh perspective! Whether you’ve inherited a neglected garden, find your needs evolving, or simply feel the urge to nurture your outdoor space, the task can seem daunting.
However, I believe that every garden has untapped potential, waiting to be discovered through a process of observation, learning, and interpretation.
If you dream of a garden that brings joy, pride, and relaxation – one that perfectly suits your needs, connects you with nature, and adds value to your property – then a garden designer like myself can turn that vision into reality. The gardens I design are unique, tailored to their location, and offer a sanctuary for escape, relaxation, and enjoyment.
From initial conception to the finishing touches, I take care of every step in designing and project managing your new garden. I collaborate with skilled landscapers to bring the design to life, and I personally handpick all the plants to ensure a bespoke service that creates a dream garden – one that’s personal, practical, and perfect for you.
Specializing in urban residential garden design, I take on projects across London, Surrey, Sussex, and Kent. I thrive on challenges, particularly those presented by the distinctive shapes of London spaces. Whether you’re looking for:
- Residential garden design
- Large or small garden design
- Town and urban garden design
- Commercial landscape garden design
I’m here to transform your outdoor space into a haven of beauty and functionality.
“A pleasure to deal with from start to finish – our designer Katerina listened closely to what we wanted and produced the most beautiful colour drawings (that we will treasure for years to come). The communication was brilliant throughout. We are so pleased with the final result. The garden is now an extension of the house and a space that we can enjoy as a family for many years to come. Highly recommend.” Olivia & Ross
