Habitat Creation in Garden Design published by Crowood Press

June 2022

Catherine appeared on a panel with leading designers at the Society of Garden Designers' 40th anniversary Sutainability Symposium which took place at the RHS Wisley. Delegates discussed the future of garden design in a world where sustainability is crucial. There was a real interest in how to design with wildlife in mind and we hope our new book will answer some of these questions.


We have been working together with Crowood Press on a book about designing habitats in domestic gardens. There will be a wealth of information about attracting wildlife, plants choices and design decisions. It is due to be published in the autumn 2022. Habitat Creation in Garden Design
