Qualified garden designer and professional gardener, my approach is about creating and maintaining flourishing outdoor spaces. I’m passionate about environmentally sensitive gardening, using elegant wildlife-friendly planting and thoughtful materials. I specialise in crafting gardens to help elevate your home, offering spaces for entertaining friends and family, cultivating your own produce, or simply finding solace in nature’s beauty as the seasons unfold. My primary focus is on creating and nurturing flourishing gardens that support wellbeing and nature.

With a background in public health and project management, I understand the benefits of outside spaces for supporting wellbeing and how the smallest of details can elevate a garden. I have a lifelong passion for gardening and nearly 40 years of hands-on experience.

After 20 years working in healthcare, the Covid-19 pandemic unveiled a crucial truth – outdoor spaces are vital for wellbeing. This reaffirmed my gardening passion, guiding me to study at the Garden Design School, University of Bristol Botanical Gardens. Qualifying with a distinction, I am now a Pre-Registered Graduate Member of the Society of Garden Designers and an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture.

At Gardens by Gemma, I blend extensive gardening experience, a scientific approach, and project monitoring know-how to inform my garden design and maintenance work. Every garden is unique, tailored to reflect each client’s personality, support wellbeing, encourage biodiversity, and respect the surrounding environment. If you’re ready to turn your outdoor space into a haven of natural beauty, get in contact and let me help unleash your garden’s potential.

I work predominantly in Bristol & Bath, North Somerset, Somerset, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, and South Wales.
