    How Lee Burkhill became a garden designer

    Having been a Senior (Prince Practitioner Certified) Project Manager in IT for the 12 years I’d become frustrated at working on goliaths of slow rumbling projects. I yearned to unleash my hidden creative side, even having to subdue my mohawk into a more acceptable hairstyle for work was a daily struggle.

    Gardening had always been my retreat and my passion. After one particularly gruelling project in 2015, I thought enough is enough, I need more meaning to my working life.

    I knew that these Project Management skills would stand me in good stead. I’m also a big believer in taking the fuss out of life where possible. I set out on a mission to get the necessary qualifications and experience to make the jump to becoming a Garden Designer.

    I’ve combined project management along with my horticulture knowledge to give you the best garden design options, on time, on budget and without any fuss. I decided it was about time I played to my strengths and embarked on becoming a Garden Designer and Garden Blogger.

    With my enthusiasm unleashed and my mohawk set to maximum height, I strapped on my wellies and ventured out into this bold new world and have never looked back.

    Lee Burkhill takes the fuss out of Garden design

    I believe every garden no matter how weed-infested, unloved or lumpy bumpy can become a room of your house you can’t wait to escape to.

    • Why bother spending hours flicking through books trying to think of how your garden should look?
    • Why take the risk of buying hundreds of pounds of plants to only see them struggle, wither or die?

    Professional garden design lets you sit back and enjoy the excitement as your dream garden is designed and created just for you.
