How We Work

Kate Gould has been working as a garden designer for almost twenty years creating award-winning gardens throughout London and South East England. Commissioned by home-owners, architects, interior designers as well as property developers and commercial clients, Kate and her team tackle all shapes and sizes of project from small city courtyards to large country estates.
