Richard Miers has been mastering the art of garden design for over 20 years, both in the UK and abroad including a dacha in Moscow, a villa in Sardinia, UK country gardens and numerous town gardens in London. Amongst his achievements, Richard was chosen to represent the United Kingdom in 2012, in the Gardening World Cup in Nagasaki Japan with his garden ‘Serenity’.
Despite being rooted in this time-honoured tradition, his gardens are clean and classically contemporary in style, with a strong sense of geometry. When designing, Richard likes to begin by putting structure into the garden, be it with hedges, walls, paths, terraces, water, trained fruit trees or an avenue of trees. These divide the garden into areas of manageable human scale, defining spaces and giving each area a purpose whilst providing shelter, varying points of interest and framed views; they also help hold the garden together through the winter months. This structure is then softened with bulbs, herbaceous flowers, shrubs and roses so that with the advent of spring & summer the excitement of the budding flowers adds a new, altogether softer dimension to the garden.
If there is a theme that runs through his work it is the curved hedging that winds its way through his herbaceous borders or stands out in sensuous baroque curves against lawn or gravel. Symmetry is also important, coupled with a sense of balance and proportion, resulting in gardens that are both harmonious and handsome. Above all, he will listen to his clients wishes and endeavour to make them become real.
He recently did an amazing installation at the House and Garden Festival in Olympia, read more about it here
