Jamie Higham is a Garden Designer for Green Dot Gardens Ltd.

I love the outdoors and so do my kids. Daylight makes me happy and weather excites me. Activity makes me feel alive. Outdoor living is for me.

This is why I do what I do.

I aim to improve the way we live our lives outdoors. My dream is to see us all live in our gardens more – whatever the weather, all year round. I see endless opportunities to make this happen. Finding the ‘win-wins’ gives me a buzz – it leads to great design. Imagine a stylish play structure with in-built storage, becoming over time, a playroom or studio. Imagine a cool decked terrace with bench seats designed for storing garden toys and a sand- or fire-pit concealed under a trap door.  Loads of function wrapped together in a coherent stylish design – this is what excites me.

How do I get this right? I ask questions and listen.

Let’s chat about how you could get the most out of your outdoor space.
