Donald Ingam

Garden Designer - Donald InghamAfter fifteen years working as a magazine art director, for some of the best magazine glossies in London, I decided to follow my life long passion for gardening and combine it with my strong design background and pursue studies in the field of garden design.

Since graduating with distinction from the World renowned English Gardening School, at the Chelsea Physic Gardens, projects have ranged from large country gardens and small urban courtyards. In the past eight years I have enjoyed each client’s individual plot or garden, with their own distinct characteristics, and transforming them into a welcoming and practical space or garden.

My portfolio of garden design is not limited to one style but includes a wide range of schemes. My design philosophy is that your outer space should carefully integrate your house into your garden and your garden into its surroundings. Careful selection of plants and materials appropriate to the character and location of each individual site ensures this.  The garden designs I have worked on have strong lines, textural planting and something very personal to each individual’s requirements. As I work in my own garden, I’m constantly trialing new plants and combinations to enable me to give clients exciting planting schemes that will work for them.
