DESIGNER

Landscape & Garden Design

My name is Gareth Edwards and I am a landscape & garden designer and pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers. Currently based near the Old Severn Bridge, overlooking the Severn Estuary in South Gloucestershire, I have been working in designed and natural landscapes for over 30 years and cover Bristol, South Gloucestershire, The Wye Valley, The Forest of Dean & The Cotswolds, North Somerset, Monmouthshire, Gwent, South Wales.

My design philosophy is inspired by the history of garden design, whether the formality of an architectural garden, the naturalness of the English Landscape Park, turn of the century Arts & Crafts, Twentieth century modernism, the rewilding of previously intensively managed landscapes, I look to the past for inspiration but am very much focused on the present, always guided by the spirit of a place. I collaborate with skilled craftspeople on many projects. Buildings architects, landscape architects, stone masons, metalworkers. Bespoke modernism inspired by a sense of place. A design philosophy that is rooted in the ecology of natural landscapes and the history of garden design.

Strong design that is part of a natural history.
