The name Deakins has been associated with design and horticulture since at least the Victorian era, Guy Deakins (BA Hons. ANC Hort. ) being just the latest member to be involved in what is evidently a family tradition. Aside from adding to the historically listed designs to the name, Guy has achieved much in his own right, successfully becoming a published author. His book on ‘Protective Growing’ from The Crowood Press, receiving many positive reviews.
Since starting the business in 1999, Guy has gained experience in many differing environments from small courtyards and roof gardens in the heart of the city, fen gardens in rural Norfolk, windswept beach-side formal gardens, and country estates designed by twentieth century cognoscente – with just about every beautiful variation in between.
With the coming of the global climate crisis, the focus of the company is always to encourage biodiversity whilst maintaining a good design aesthetic. To this end, Guy studied neuroscience at degree level, so that he could fully understand the brain’s aesthetic pathways when looking at shapes, structures and colours.
We are fully certified, qualified and trained to the highest degree, science is our bible.
