Richard Miers has been designing gardens for over 15 years, both in the UK and abroad. Lauded as one of the top ten up and coming garden designers by House and Garden Magazine in February 2011 he was also invited to design a show garden for The Daily Telegraph/House and Garden Fair in 2007. Of which Susan Crewe, Editor of House & Garden, said of ‘The Scented Garden’:
‘An inspired piece of design; so much of the moment, yet with its roots in a thousand years of horticultural history and tradition.’
More recently Richard has returned from representing Great Britain in the 2012 Gardening World Cup in Nagasaki, Japan, where his garden ‘Tranquility’ was described as ‘delightful and elegantly sophisticated’.
Despite being rooted in this time-honoured tradition, his gardens are clean and classically contemporary in style, with a strong sense of geometry.
Symmetry and scale are also important, coupled with a sense of balance and proportion, resulting in gardens that are both harmonious and handsome.
Design ethos: ‘Good garden design is all about teamwork and communication. Translating ideas coherently to both client and contractor is key.’
