Garden design Haywards Heath
Haywards Heath is one of the biggest town in West Sussex in the south-east of England.
Following the rail development in the late 1800, Haywards Heath became an important commuter town. The train station which opened in 1841 is on the main Brighton railway. The town is also near the main road between London and Brighton. Many residents work in the surrounding major towns (Brighton, London, East Grinstead and Crawley).
If you are interested in gardens and garden design, Haywards Heath is surrounded by wonderful gardens: Borde Hill Garden, Nymans, Sheffield Park (designed by Capability Brown), Gravetye Manor, High Beeches garden, Wakehurst Place… As a garden lover it is worth becoming a national trust member as some of the gardens are part of this scheme. They are only in a 10 miles radius.
Gravetye Manor (9 miles from Haywards Heath) played a key role in the garden design history as it was the home of William Robinson, a gardener and journalist who set a new movement in the garden design history. Whit his book “The Wild Garden“, William Robinson created a new garden design approach.

As a garden designer based in Haywards Heath, I am influenced by the surrounding landscape. Haywards Heath is on the edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As housing in Haywards Heath has been expanded significantly this natural landscape is under threat.
