Each client we work with is unique. We pride ourselves on delivering a friendly professional design and build service, and we listen and respond to your needs throughout the entire process. We work hard to ensure your garden is constructed on time and to budget with minimum disruption.
My specialised and practical knowledge of art, design and horticulture enables me to deliver a professional and inspirational garden design service. Whilst working my apprenticeship with Anthony Paul in 2003; one of the UK’s most influential contemporary garden designers I qualified with a Postgraduate Diploma in Residential Landscape Design from the Oxford College of Garden Design. I was subsequently employed by a leading Design/Build practice in London. In 2006, I happily returned to the West Country to set up my own design practice in Bristol. I am a registered member of the Society of Garden Designers, having passed the only professional adjudication process for garden designers in the UK.
Alicia has spent 10 years working in the garden design and horticultural industry gaining a BA (Hons) in Garden Design at The University of Greenwich in 2012. Previous to that she received training at Trebah Gardens in Cornwall and worked at a local plant nursery while running a small garden maintenance business where she nurtured a love of plants and their needs.
Since 2012 she has spent 3 yrs working for a private practice in Kent who specialise in Historic Garden Restoration and has received training at the prestigious Great Dixter garden in Sussex. She is delighted to have recently returned to the South West to work with me as Katherine Roper Landscape & Garden Design continues to grow.
The Construction Team
I chose to work in partnership with John Fellows and Dave Kirk because they consistently demonstrate a strong work ethic and most importantly, a quality of workmanship that I was looking for in the execution of the gardens created. They have also worked with several leading designers, including multi Award winning designer and Chelsea Gold Medal winner Andy Sturgeon.
I also collaborate with a wide range of craftsmen and artists in the local area in order to create bespoke features and garden artefacts.
Together we create beautiful gardens by way of producing elegant design solutions; incorporating natural materials and constructing each element of the garden to a high standard. Whether fitting a manhole cover in a small city garden or a bespoke pergola in a large country estate our work ethic remains the same.
