Favorite design style: Naturalist/Modernist
Design Icon: Raymond Jungles, I am particularly inspired by Raymond’s design for Coconut Grove Florida. In the way the artificial landforms and man-made surfaces are balanced together to create a certain harmony.
What’s your motto? “Audentes fortuna iuvat.” (“Fortune favors the bold”)
What are you most looking forward to at Gardening Scotland? I’m looking forward to seeing the diversity of designs as well as different plant combinations.
