Emily Erlam

Emily Erlam has been a practising landscape designer since 2008, after completing her training at London College of Garden Design and The English Gardening School. She specialises in designing plant led gardens and has won a number of awards for developing schemes with for renovated old buildings and for contemporary new build projects.

Emily will teach a 'hands on' course where you will learn how to analyse the space that you are designing and and create a design that is unique and personal to that space.

Whatever the project, Emily believes the same methods of work apply; genuine sensitivity to the existing landscape whilst respecting the integrity of the buildings. "This is what enables us to design a garden which is harmonious, and with that invariably comes beauty."
