Graduated: BSc (Hons) Landscape & Garden Design
Occupation: Landscape Design Consultant at Spring (Cultivated Services for Schools)
My Writtle University College I chose to study the BSc (Hons) Landscape and Garden Design
course because it specialised in areas of design which allowed
me to broaden my knowledge and skill base. I particularly
enjoyed the study of landscape components and their
relationship to the wider context.
I have fond memories of my student life at Writtle, great friends,
lecturers and study trips.
My Career Path Prior to studying at Writtle College, I worked at the RHS Hyde
Hall Garden. My role there propelled my love of plants and
horticulture. I wanted to fuel this passion into designing
cohesive landscape spaces which would work in harmony with
natural and artificial elements.
I was in part-time employment throughout my degree and this
allowed me to apply my studying through work. Once I completed
my degree, it was my first class honours that supported me
through to gaining a permanent position as a Landscape Design
Consultant specialising in primary schools.
My degree encouraged and developed my interests in
landscape design and how these might impact human life,
particularly with education and the interaction of young people.
My Current Job My job as Landscape Design Consultant at Spring (Cultivated
Services for Schools) entails regular meetings with head
teachers and school councils.
The position holds high responsibility in relation to the
production of plans and transferring these to contractors, the
pressure is on to get these correct.
Future Plans I aspire to set up my own business based on my past successes
and career ambitions. I will continue to put my degree into
