All about me!
Ash & Bee was established in 2003 and grew from the maintenance of small gardens to the landscape and planting design of high-end new properties in Cornwall. I relocated to Clifton in Bristol in Spring 2014 with my photographer husband Mark and our three wonderful children, where I also freelance as a tv horticultural researcher ( BBC The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge; Chelsea Flower Show; currently Gardeners' World ). I also offer garden consultations in the Bristol area.
After a career as a primary school teacher I studied garden design, garden maintenance and garden history at Duchy College, Cornwall, with the design element taught by Chelsea Gold medal winner John Moreland. I went on to design, create and maintain gardens in North Cornwall for a variety of budgets. My garden design style is simple but effective, classy but practical and always individual. I strive to blend interior and exterior design to create a living space that works together as a whole to make your lives as calm or as invigorating as your needs require, with plants always centre stage.
