Jeremy Allen Garden Design was established in 2008 and represents a career change for Jeremy. Prior to 2008 he studied at the internationally prestigious Inchbald School of Design, where he gained a distinction. Subsequently he gained valuable experience working for a nationally known garden designer.
Despite becoming a garden designer as a second career Jeremy has a wealth of practical gardening experience. He practices what he preaches and is a passionate gardener, having gardened for over 30 years. In that time Jeremy has created from scratch three large gardens of his own. His current garden has been more than ten years in the making having been a completely overgrown thicket at inception. It now covers four acres and includes tree avenues, structural hedges and topiary, water features, a natural pond, an orchard and masses of herbaceous planting. And the project continues!
As a hands on gardener Jeremy has a strong understanding of the practicalities involved with creating, developing and maintaining a garden, qualities which should not be overlooked when choosing a garden designer. He has very extensive plant knowledge, constantly trials new plants in his own garden before selecting them for clients and is therefore well placed to provide expert planting advice. Jeremy believes that looking after plants should be kept as simple as possible. This means “right plant, right place”, but also avoiding plants that are prone to diseases and, where possible, that need staking or frequent tending.
Jeremy will design gardens based on a wealth of experience of growing plants, garden maintenance and garden creation.
Jeremy’s garden is open to group visits by appointment. Please use the contact page for further information.
