HOLLYMEAD GARDEN DESIGN

Alison Miles gained a diploma (hons) in garden design at KLC School of Design in London, followed by a RHS certificate in the principles of horticulture and spent a couple of summer seasons volunteering for the National Trust in the lovely walled gardens of Calke Abbey in Derbyshire – acquiring a broad skills base in both design and horticulture along the way.

Working from her home studio in rural Herefordshire, Alison offers a bespoke garden design service, working closely with clients to create beautiful gardens tailored to suit individual needs and budget.

A range of services are offered for all size of gardens, whether rolling acres or tiny courtyards, and from a complete garden makeover to planting plans for individual borders.

Alison works closely with a small group of local, trusted landscape contractors, water feature specialists and bespoke garden building makers to ensure the garden design process, from concept to completion, runs smoothly.

Her portfolio of work includes a wide range of garden designs from small and contemporary to large country gardens, and as a garden designer, it is her great pleasure to help people transform their outdoor space into a garden to be proud of.

Alison is a member of Herefordshire’s Horticultural Hub

Alison Miles has been designing gardens since 2004, achieving two RHS medals at the Malvern Spring Gardening Show – a Silver-Gilt in 2010 for her ReSource Garden showcasing use of reclaimed materials in the garden, and Silver in 2013 for The Haven a garden for calm repose.
