Personal Challenges

With a knack for turning passions into profitable ventures, I’m your go-to guy for blending the art of garden design with savvy business strategies.

The transition? I’ve made it and have been in your shoes.

Mistakes? I’ve made them so you don’t have to.

Let’s take this journey together.

My Story

"With a background in architectural design and over 19 years in sales, marketing, tech, partnering and business development, Simon blends his business expertise with a passion for Garden Design."

Simon in multiple roles

Hey there! I’m Simon, your go-to guide for turning Garden Design from a hobby into a thriving business.

I know you’re brimming with creative ideas, but maybe business isn’t your second nature – I get it.

That’s where I step in. With my own story of twists and turns from architecture to Garden Design and two decades in the business world, I’m all set to help you navigate this exciting path.

My Unconventional Journey

I’m not your average mentor. I’ve been where you are – a creative first, a businessperson second. And I made it work beautifully. From architecture to IT, and then to the world of garden design. We all have an origin story, and that’s mine. And I’m proud of it.

Experience and Expertise

Combining my flair for garden design with my knack for business, I’ve navigated both worlds.. I’ve stumbled, learned, and now I’m set to pass on these hard-earned lessons to you.

Personal Philosophy

I believe in the art of garden & landscape design as much as I believe in the science of business.  My aim? To mesh these worlds seamlessly for you.

I Am In The Trenches

I run an active & thriving Garden Design Studio and thus have a real pulse on the market. However, my quick rise to success has been due to my approach to growth and client acquisition which is different from what is standard on the market

You will be able to book yourself in for a one-on-one call. Whenever you need me, I’m here to help. There is no such thing as a small question; you can ask about a difficult client, setting up a website, or closing a client. P.S. And guess what? Your first call is completely free 🙂

digital workshops

"Transformative Experience"

I knew I needed to up my digital marketing game as a startup in the Garden Design space, but I wasn't sure where to begin. Simon's workshop was a game-changer. The hands-on approach, combined with real-world examples, gave me the confidence and skills I needed.

Answers to your 'commonly asked' questions

For additional questions, please use the contact details on our contact us page.

This is a crucial question, and you are right to ask it. There is no one-size-fits-all mentoring style. I will be happy to answer any questions and address any doubts you may have during a free virtual coffee call with me. You can then decide based on the information you gained from the call.

It’s important to me that you get the most out of what is offered. In the event that I feel you will not benefit from what is offered, I will be open and honest about it.

In my view, it’s a unique combination of my background and my approach to operating in this industry. As an unconventional entry into the garden design business, I bring a progressive perspective. As an experienced mentor to businesses in the tech startup space, I’ve developed a unique mentoring style designed to drive results.

While the only prerequisite is a passion for the industry and an ambition to go professional, I believe those who get the most out of the program have already started designing in some capacity. Whether it is a design school project, a design for your own space, a design for the family’s home, a volunteer project, or actual client work. My advice and direction would be more rewarding if you had that under your belt.

Absolutely! I’m always here to help. Simply find a slot on my calender and book yourself in.

All the common topics can be found above. It’s worth sharing that 80% of the mentoring is focused on business and growth, while 20% is focused on technical skills and garden design.

There is no set start or end time. However, those who benefit most from the mentoring invest six(6) to twelve(12) months in the program. Jumping from one aspect to another and implementing it (alongside accountability calls). There are some who attend workshops or simply access the startup resources in the portal to gain value.

Peer Meetings – Peer meetings have an annual registration fee of £25, after which every meeting is free.  Just show up and engage.
