Headed by Naila Green, the garden design practice, established over twenty years ago, includes a team of qualified garden designers and horticulturalists, working for private as well as corporate clients. We have produced residential garden designs for small as well as large gardens, and large landscape design schemes for, both, tourist-based concerns and for commercial organisations such as South West Water. We, routinely, work with architects, deal with Local Authority Planning requirements, Listed Buildings and TPOs (Tree Preservation Orders).
We have designed and project-managed a number of show gardens at Royal Horticultural Society shows, including Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows, for clients such as the BBC, General Motors and the RHS itself, and have merited an award for each one, including several gold awards. We are proud that one of our designs for a front garden and driveway was awarded a British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) National Award.
Apart from providing seminars and lectures for the RHS, and for garden societies, Naila has also been an RHS show gardens judge and taught budding garden designers through a variety of garden and planting design courses, including a Professional Garden Design course to Foundation Degree level. Naila has also designed and authored garden design and planting design courses, as well as, occasionally, writing articles for gardening magazines about garden design and about her own coastal garden (Highover), which has featured widely in books, magazines, newspapers and on television.
Personally. Naila is a very keen gardener, and is passionate about plants, planting and gardens, a passion which provides the driving ethos for all her work.
Naila has featured in many garden magazines and books, both as the subject and the writer. Highover, her garden, on the clifftop at Dawlish, has also been featured in many articles and has a chapter all to itself in 'Gardens by the Sea', by Barbara Segall, which features coastal gardens from all over the world. Because of the expertise gained at Highover, Naila also acts as a consultant to other designers on coastal planting.
Noel Kingsbury's 'Garden Desidners at Home' (Published by Anova Pavillion) features Naila and her garden at Highover. She is delighted to be in the company of so many world famous garden designers.
