The Mill House, Balcombe

A well known site in Balcombe, West Sussex with a beautiful water side location planted in a naturalistic way sympathetic to the growing conditions on site. This garden has evolved over the 15 years I have been helping to maintain it. The planting is informal and never finished, regular tweaking of the planting scheme has meant that this garden changes every season. As the garden matures the original scheme has morphed into something more spectacular and is a constant reminder of my roots as a gardener and garden designer.

“We met Alex when he was just starting out and, knowing nothing about gardening, we had bought a large garden that needed a lot of attention. He has improved it almost beyond recognition and it is a constant delight. Ideas stream forth and we have a new, exciting, project almost every year. The proof of his ability is that we receive endless plaudits from friends and strangers. His capacity to envision the end result is amazing. We would have been totally lost without him.”
