About Alison Mason

Portrait of Alison Mason

I work in London and the home counties currently many of my commissions cover the areas of London and Hertforshire.

I trained as a garden designer at the well known Capel Manor in Hertforshire obtaining a distinction in Horticulture and Garden Design. I was able to bring together my love of horticulture, sculpture, portrait painting and drawing.

You can see some of my work here on the website that my work is very varied designing gardens of any size and style including; small seaside gardens, working vegetable gardens, London courtyards, Japanese themed gardens, garden offices, contemporary and traditional London gardens to large rural gardens. Many of these will be themed and if large often have different rooms and areas.

You will see that many clients come to me for my extensive horticultural knowledge, some ask for richly planted gardens but equally I enjoy creating low maintenance, calm spaces using minimalistic planting for clients wanting a classical look.

The key to my designs is listening to what you want and creating something together of lasting beauty. This means that time spent during the design process should be considered and creative for you too.

I enjoy maintaining contact with my clients for years after the initial garden design project, often providing on-going advice and sometimes working alongside them in their gardens. My website reflects this by showing pictures of the gardens post-build and when they are fully mature. You can see my own garden under Plants Woman’s garden.

Over the years I have developed relationships with a range of related companies and trusted individuals providing complimentary services such as: tree surgery, landscaping, surveying, high quality, building materials and plants, build furniture and products for the garden. All of whom I am happy to work with and recommend.

I have designed, and planted a wide variety of gardens from small seaside gardens to modern London and large rural gardens.
