Beth Williams established her Kent-based garden and landscape design practice after graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Garden Design from the University of Greenwich in 2015.
A month later, she and her friend, Stuart Charles Towner, won a Gold Medal and Best In Show at the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, with Green Seam, a garden showcasing the regeneration of a Kent coalmine.
Beth creates natural and romantic gardens, with a deep sensitivity to the needs of both humans and wildlife. Her aim is to design spaces that speak to the soul, while honouring the spirit of the wider landscape.
Her work is often led by the patterns found in nature and by naturally occurring communities of wild plants.
She has a particular interest in creating kitchen and edible gardens, having spent some time working at an organic vegetable farm. Beth also continues to work as a gardener, belivieving that nothing compares to the sort of hands-on understanding this brings to her work.
Before re-training, Beth was a print journalist for 20 years. She enjoys garden and nature photography, and accepts occasional commissions. Her photographic work often explores the interplay of plants and light, which in turn informs her work as a designer.
She lives in a hamlet on the North Downs in Kent with her husband, Justin – a journalist and writer – and their yellow Labrador, Hugo.
