Garden Design and Planting Design
by Catherine Payne

My design studio is based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and from here I work on design projects across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, North London and sometimes further afield.

My formal qualifications include a Level 3 Diploma in Garden Design from Capel Manor College, London, along with a Level 3 RHS Diploma in Horticulture from Shuttleworth College in Bedfordshire.

With over 11 years experience working in Horticulture and Design, I have been lucky enough to work with some wonderful clients on a wide variety of design projects.

I’ve always felt inspired by the beauty of nature and that, coupled with a real appreciation of architecture, sculpture and art, made Garden Design a natural career choice for me.

I am a professional, creative garden designer who takes pride in bringing interesting and practical spaces to life, whether large or small, from cosy courtyards spaces to large country gardens.

Every garden and client is unique so I listen carefully to your brief, working closely with you throughout the process to ensure that you are totally happy with the end result. I have long standing relationships with landscape contractors, lighting experts, irrigation specialists and wholesale nurseries ensuring a smooth delivery of your new garden.
