Kristina says:

“I PASSIONATELY BELIEVE a well-designed garden is one that looks harmonious with its surroundings. Working with both the natural environment, style of house as well as the wider landscape, I interpret my clients' wishes to ensure the gardens I create are not just visually stunning but look as if they were always meant to be there. Using a fusion of both ornamental and natural planting, my designs encourage wildlife into the garden to create a vibrant haven for all and a feast for the senses."

Garden Design Projects

As featured on BBC Gardeners' World 2023*, these multi-award winning front and rear gardens were designed by Kristina for a new eco-house in Winchelsea Beach, East Sussex. With landscape planning requirements for bat habitat conservation, the front is a drought tolerant, coastal inspired gravel garden, and the rear garden has a wildflower meadow, orchard, bog garden and pond.

 

This garden won the 'Design for the Environment' Award in the Society of Garden Designer's 2022 Awards. It also won the 'Landscape & Garden Award' in the Sussex Heritage Trust 2023 Awards.

Designed to complement the charming tall, old garden walls in the grounds of a Grade II listed Georgian manor house in Lydd, Kent, just down the road from Camber Sands. This romantic rose garden follows a traditional quartered layout, but with a modern naturalistic twist to the planting.

Above the gravel path, climbing roses, wisteria and clematis climb the walls, whilst Yorkstone paths lead from an doorway in the wall to the existing summerhouse and across the garden  at right angles, with a stone sundial at the centre.
