Interior Design Year Book, 2016
18 November 2015
Marcus spent seven years with the army and was then appointed as Equerry to HRH the Duke of Kent KG before giving in to his deep-seated love of landscape and garden design. He won his first Gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show only a year after graduating from the Inchbald School of Design in 2004. Since then, he has steadily added to his tally of medals at Chelsea – most recently winning another Gold with his design for The Telegraph Garden in 2015. Marcus stands out among his international rivals for creating gardens, which feel particularly personal to a client. He and his team use planting, which relates and responds to the surrounding landscape and the history and architecture of the home.
This results in gardens that possess a true sense of place and have both impact, a sense of romance and the needs and personalities of the client at their heart. Marcus’s gardens feel comfortable and relaxed with each area of the garden working as an individual space as well as contributing to the overall seamless design of the whole.
