About Me

I grew up in a remote village in Kazakhstan, far away from colour televisions and other new technologies of the 1970s and ’80s. Surrounded by mountains and steppes, my earliest memory of nature is being on my own listening to the sound of a stream and being surrounded by small yellow flowers that grew on the banks. I would often find myself climbing trees and hiding under the enormous leaves in my Grandmother’s garden, and immersing myself in the surrounding countryside. I spent my youth living in Germany, it was quite a different landscape to the one I left behind. Forests, meadows and hills, each in a luscious new shade of green. The hills were covered in heather, the meadows with dandelions and the lakes brought a stillness with a different kind of vastness to the skies of the steppes.

When I moved to England I graduated with merit from the respected Inchbald School of Design and became a landscape and garden designer.

I like gardens that fit into their surroundings and which, no matter how big or small, provide an almost sacred space for people to withdraw from everyday life and renew themselves.

I draw inspiration from a range of sources – from natural landscapes, to architecture, art and design – and I always consider the environment, location and context of the site. I strive to work with nature to produce sustainable, ecological and beautifully designed gardens that support local wildlife and promote biodiversity.

I am able to provide a wholesome garden service from initial consultation, through to build and finally planting. I oversee the projects throughout the whole process and all clients can choose whether to use the total service or only those elements they require…consultation, design, build or planting.

I found Helene to be very professional with frequent visits to site to check that everything was progressing nicely without any issues, when I had any queries she's was also always available at the end of the phone. The design was a beautiful modern garden design and we had no problems with installing the garden from the plans/drawings that where provided.
