Who is Robert?

Robert Grimstead is a multi-award-winning garden designer and a pre-registered member of the society of Garden Designers. His career in garden design and construction spans over 23 years and includes work in Europe and the Middle East.

Inspired by a family tree of gardeners, Robert has, since an early age had an interest in all things green. After graduating from Writtle College, where he completed a National Diploma in Horticulture and an HND in Landscape Construction it seemed like the natural route of progression to start a career in garden design.

During his academia Robert spent a year working in the sprawling gardens of a Jacobean mansion, this enabled him to develop his real passion for plants at a grass roots level under a very old-school head gardener.

He Also spent a year working in Istanbul, designing gardens for clients with sizeable budgets, often managing large teams of non-English speaking workers and associated plant. Lastly a year in central London working closely with renowned garden designer Stephen Woodhams.

Robert has since then earned a reputation for creating stylish modern landscapes that are a fusion of clean geometry, innovative materials and naturalistic planting. He often works closely with Architects, developers and Interior designers at the planning stage to ensure the garden creates a harmonious link between the architecture of the house and the surrounding landscape.

As a former member of the APL and BALI Robert has an extensive list of preferred, professional landscape contractors that he works with on a regular basis to realise his designs. He also works closely with other specialists such as, fabricators, sculptors, and structural engineers on larger, more detailed projects.
