About CGD Landscape Design

Helen and Sally are talented and respected designers, working across both the disciplines of garden designers and landscape architects. Our work ranges from creating very intimate and personal gardens in small spaces to extensive country estates to public spaces. Typical of our commercial commissions, was a project to harvest rainwater for the owners of a commercial nursery, designing an ornamental lake which doubles as the water store for irrigating the produce in the nursery. Other public projects include work at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park (the largest of the Royal Parks in London) and more industrial spaces making 'Gardens at Work'.

Like landscape architects, we work in partnership with our clients, their architects and interior designers, and individually tailor our landscape design service to meet the client's needs and their specific site. Often we provide landscape design drawings for Planning, from new builds to refurbishments and often in areas with conservation restrictions.

In common with Landscape Architects, we are often working in very inhospitable sites, like steeply sloping hillsides, shady courtyards, rooftops, windswept coastlines and less temperate climates such as the extremes of heat and freezing cold of Russia to the intense heat and drought of California.

Sally lectures worldwide, has written 2 books and is a member of the Garden Writers Guild. Sally was also Vice Principal of the Oxford College of Garden Design for 3 years.

Helen is a member of the Editorial Advisory Panel for the Garden Design Journal. Her work has been also been published in various books and magazines. Also for many years Helen was an adjudicator and ran workshops for the Society of Garden Designers and for 2 years was a Judge for the International Design Awards for the APLD, the American professional body for landscape architects and garden designers. Helen has also run a number of Garden Design courses at the Inchbald School of Garden Design and the University of Arts London.

Sally and Helen are both Fellows & Registered Members of the UK Society of Garden Designers. Sally is also a certified member of the Association of Professional Landscape Designers in USA.
