After a successful 24 year City career, I decided to pursue my passion for plants and garden design. I qualified in both horticulture and garden design at Capel Manor Horticultural College in North London and have subsequently established Vanessa Dekker Garden Design. I have been accepted as a Pre-Registered Member of the Society of Garden Designers – the pre-eminent professional body for garden design in the UK.
My objective is to deliver my client’s aspirations through careful and innovative interpretation of their brief. I strive to present an inspiring outdoor space that reflects their style and practical needs – all within an agreed and realistic budget. I believe in using clean lines, bold, textured planting and materials that are in keeping with the surroundings. Whether the design is for bespoke planters, simple planting plans or complete garden redesigns, I pay close attention to the detail so that I can surpass expectations.
Above all, I offer knowledge, expertise, imagination and lots of enthusiasm!
