Let nature design your gardenwith A Real Gardener
Hi, I’m Floyd. I have been a professional gardener in the UK for over 30 years. I am currently based in Shropshire, working as a horticulturist for private individuals and businesses. In addition to my work as a landscape gardener, I offer garden advice (in-person and online) and 3D garden design.
I am sensitive to the needs of the environment and consider it a real privilege to work with my customers to deliver real gardening.
I am lucky to have gained such varied experience through my work as a landscape gardener. I believe this sets me apart from other online garden designers as I have a deep understanding of the needs of the soil, plants, and wider ecosystem, and can bring this knowledge to the table even when designing remotely.
I’m delighted to answer questions about everyday garden maintenance, such as planting, pruning and managing your garden throughout the seasons, as well as offering advice on larger landscaping projects.
3D garden design
I can bring your dream garden to life using the latest 3D garden design technology. If you’re based in Shropshire, look no further for a local garden designer near you.
I also deliver international garden design projects using an interactive, online garden planner tool.
I have been a Real Gardener for 30 years and am lucky enough to still be gardening professionally now.
I am proud to share a living portfolio of my past and present work in garden maintenance and landscaping.
3D Garden Design
As a professional horticulturist, I incorporate my knowledge and experience of day-to-day gardening into my online garden designs. If you are keen to find a garden designer near you who understands general garden maintenance, I’d be delighted to hear from you.
The blocks below show how the garden design process works. Please get in touch for more information.

I love to share what I’ve learned over the years as a gardener who has worked across the UK and now in Shropshire.
Whether you would like a one-off chat about how to look after certain plants in your garden, or would like to make regular appointments to learn more about garden maintenance, I’d love to hear from you.
I offer bespoke gardening advice both in-person (if you’re local to Shropshire) or online. Please contact me to find out more.
If you’re desperate to find out how to prune native garden plants, such as Wisteria and climbing Rose, check out the videos below!
My gardening career started at the Sutton Place Estate in Surrey where I learned from some of the best horticulturists and landscape gardeners in the UK. Over the years, I have grown into a Real Gardener and take much pride in the projects I’ve been lucky enough to work on. My gardening now takes a holistic approach, ensuring I garden for both people and planet.
While I’m out gardening, I love to note down weird and wonderful plants I see throughout the day. I enjoy researching and writing about what I discover, and sharing this through my blog. It helps me to think about garden advice I could offer, including tips and planting ideas. Feel free to send me requests for new posts!
