Robin Sheppard – Garden Designer

“TRobinSheppardhere is no greater pleasure than seeing the look of joy on clients’ faces when they see their new garden for the first time.”

With 25 years of experience behind him, Robin has finely honed his landscaping skills in creating beautiful gardens. He has worked on seven gardens that have won awards in addition to working on two show gardens for us at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. Both of these gardens won Silver Gilt Awards.

Having extensive experience on the construction side Robin feels it is a natural progression to develop his designing skills further after designing his first garden 5 years ago.

He loves a challenge and whether it’s a contemporary, cottage or a traditional garden he enjoys creating something special with the space provided. Robin says every garden and every client is different and that is what makes his job so fantastic. His belief is simple. He carefully listens and works hard to ensure he has a real understanding of the kind of garden they want to create and ultimately how they want to enjoy their garden.

Making a real difference

Being 100% optimistic by nature, Robin genuinely loves making a real difference to someone’s life by designing the garden they will treasure before moving on to help the next client.

It seems that Landscape Design comes naturally to Robin, although he says he fell into landscaping quite by accident! He always wanted to work with his hands and after a few years working in restaurants and shops, purely by chance, he helped on a landscaping job. He impressed his boss so much he was offered a job. The rest as they say is history!

When Robin is away from landscaping he loves being with his family and he is also an amateur actor. He is a winner of the Best Actor Award in the Royal Navy Drama Festival. He also professes he is an armchair sports fan and loves to watch Formula 1.
