Gary May, garden designer and Vita the dogGary May – Director

Having decided to make a career change in 2010, I went on to complete a Diploma in Garden Design from the Pickard School, which I passed with Distinction.

I then spent some time working in private gardens including West Green House, Hook

In 2012 I set up Globe Gardens with the aim of designing and creating gardens that are unique, useable, offer interest throughout the year and most importantly make people smile.

Typically my designs and planting plans have a contemporary style with geometric influences.

I enjoy visiting gardens in winter as I feel they should look just as good in the depths of January as they do with all the colour of summer.

I live in Wiltshire with my wife Nerys and our dog Vita.


Kate Savill – Garden Designer

I grew up in the picturesque Cornish landscape and have always felt a strong connection with nature.

Studying fine art at college and university, creativity comes naturally to me. After completing a Diploma in Garden Design from the Pickard School, I carried out an apprenticeship in Horticulture and Design with the Homebase Garden Academy.

After the Academy, I worked full time for Adam Frost working on a range of projects from private clients’ gardens to international show gardens and charity schemes. I have also been awarded a Gold medal for my first ever show garden at RHS’s annual competition; Young Designer of the Year.

Coming from a fine art background I love to use my creativity to ‘paint with planting’ and I thrive in sourcing influence from all around to realise clients’ hopes and expectations; creating something truly personally for each individual.
