Chris created the first concept drawings for our villa's garden back in 2002. Since then he has worked with us to develop an emerging shape and character for the garden. Sometimes the projects have been large; other times they are only just a few hours. In all cases Chris is a great landscape designer, experienced plantsman and trusted confidant.
