Laura Anstiss - Garden Designer

Laura Anstiss has been a keen horticulturalist all her life; growing up on Exmoor meant that from an early age, Laura was inspired by her surroundings and the natural beauty of landscape. A farming background also furnished Laura with hands on experience with managing and developing the land.

Having qualified from Hadlow and Greenwich with a degree in Horticulture and Design, Laura believes it is important to be able to view a garden from a designer’s prospective. It is imperative to understand the relationship between hard and soft landscape, there are many ingredients combined to meet the level of success in the garden and to understand the habit of plants, knowing how they will look throughout the year, and how they will relate to the rest of the garden.

When asked why she became a garden designer, Laura replies:

I love plants, good design, meeting new people and bringing pleasure from outside space. Being a garden designer is the perfect combination of all of these aspects. I can’t think of any other job I would rather do!

A collaboration between people with different backgrounds and training, and a mix of skills and specialisation helps bring together the diversity of a great team.

A vibrant and successful design career has included designing for Alan Titchmarsh and the team on ITVs love your garden.

When asked about teamwork, Laura replies:

Knowing how to put together the right team for the job is one of my core skills. Coordinating a project and ensuring key tasks are completed in the right order are essential to delivering excellence.
