approach“When I first met Andrew in a field in Essex (he was advising its owners on turning it into a nature reserve), I was struck by his gentle manner. In no time at all I realised that this quietly-spoken man was fired by a passion for his subject, and that there was nothing he didn’t know about––in this case––trees and wild flowers and their habitats and ecology. Steeped in knowledge of the natural world, he clearly also had a designer’s eye, an eye for the picturesque and for the aesthetics of planning. His imaginative ideas for the nature reserve resulted in a highly professional site analysis, an expert study of the prospective habitat creation, and a detailed diary for preliminary works and eventual planting––while underlining the importance for a new nature reserve to source its materials and plants locally. His planting plan was a work of beauty.

“The plant collection is increasing all the time and runs to hundreds of different species which provide year-round interest in the garden. Andrew Peters has applied his encyclopaedic knowledge of flora to help ensure that plants take full advantage of the preferences that different species have for light, shelter, soils, moisture and micro-climates. There are marvellous plants which are growing strongly and include several unusual species that would not survive or flourish anywhere in the United Kingdom except on the
west coast.”

“Andrew restored the gardens to their former grandeur, redesigning large parts of them. He has an eye for shape, colour and architectural details and an ability to blend the new with the old.”
