Martin's garden design and build experience is extensive (though his photographic record is sparse). 

He learnt his craft working with Isabel and Julian Bannerman on their extensive catalogue of impressive clients. Notable projects include The Stumpery at Highgrove, The Collector Earl's Garden at Arundel Castle and many projects at Hanham Court Gardens.

In his own design practice Martin specialises in creating hard landscaping elements that meld into their landscape - such as the water trough seen here - which, though it looks like a well settled in vintage piece, is actually a brand new construction.
