Meet the Author

I'm Rachel Mathews and I've been a professional garden designer for over 20 years. I'm based in the UK but do work internationally for clients in the USA, Australia, Malaysia, North Africa, Spain and Switzerland. Over the years I've designed every size, shape and style of garden. My passion lately is to create modern gardens with a natural feel, whilst incorporating plenty of edible foods.

In 2009 I did an online teacher training programme so I could learn how to teach garden design and since then I have been writing and teaching garden design to a worldwide audience via the Successful Garden Design website.

I'm currently taking a year out from my design and construction business to write another 3 ebooks and mini-garden design courses. I've fled the UK to the warmer climates of southern Spain; the warm weather definitely helps the writing process you know!
