After a career in the City, Virginia studied Landscape Design at the College of Garden Design, Surrey and the English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London and has practiced since 1988. She lives in rural Berkshire from where she runs a small studio working on large and small gardens both in the UK and in Europe.

Virginia believes in a strong sense of place in any design, be it urban, rural, large or small. The spirit of each space will be the overarching influence on any project. Virginia will work with her own or a client's contractors to produce a garden that will look natural and as if it is very much 'part of the place'.
