Charlotte Wess Garden Design

There seems to be a trend amongst previously desk-tied designers, illustrators and artists to take their skills into the open air.

A friend of ours Charlotte Wess made that move from a successful illustrator specialising in botanical illustrations and watercolours to a garden designer a few years ago and has been taking the RHS courses part time over the past few years as well as running her own garden design firm 'wessgardens'.

Charlotte is now the holder of an RHS silver medal for her balcony design inspired by recycling and sustainable planting (recycling 'cycles' - geddit? - planters made from bike tyres and supports from bike parts)
Her website featuring some of her finished designs for Sussex gardens is here.
