The Garden Design Company Ltd was created in 1996 by Rob Jones. It is now made up of a team of horticulturalists, designers and building specialists, who are all experts in their own field and committed to the high standards that underpin every job that GDC undertakes.
Originally a litigation lawyer specialising in medical crime and malpractice, Rob swapped sharp suits for secateurs and a drawing board over 20 years ago.
Jo is a successful independent Chelsea award winning landscape designer. She trained originally as a textile designer at Loughborough College of Art & worked as a freelance designer for 10 years. This gave her an understanding of how to take a brief, a great sense of space & proportion with a flair for good creative design.
She retrained as a garden designer & in 2002 went on to win a silver medal at her Chelsea debut together with the coveted BBC peoples choice award for her chic garden.
Jo’s designs range from courtyards to large estates & we have worked collaboratively with her for twelve years on many beautiful schemes – some can be seen here on our website.
