Duncan Heather is one of Europe’s most respected garden designers. To date, he has won five gold medals, one silver medal and one bronze medal, plus three Best of Show Awards for his design work.
He was trained by the renowned landscape designer and author John Brookes. In 1991 he was offered a directorship with John Brookes, but declined to concentrate on his own design practice.
From 2004 to 2007, Duncan sat on the SGD (Society of Garden Designers) council. He was responsible for creating the first industry-standard fee scale, and the first standard contract.
Duncan is co-author of The Heather Specification, and is a regular lecturer for the SGD. He lives in Oxfordshire and continues to undertake design projects around the world, from tiny courtyard gardens to large country estates.
