Hello. I’m Stephen Read. I’m a landscape designer who is passionate about all things design. I have a strong belief in the transformational nature of good design and its ability to maximize social and economic value. After 20 years designing gardens in Australia and in Europe I have come to the realization that access to quality green space is vital for our health and well-being.
Over the past few years I have developed a unique and fresh approach when designing gardens. The fundamental difference is a collaborative process between client and designer. Empathy for the location, architecture and those that use the garden are key influences, and the design is driven by what is needed and not by ego. Only then will the results speak for themselves, with no need to apologize for cliched additions; the garden will work seamlessly – now and for years to come.
