Tending the land to create beautiful, abundant and thoughtful places

Creation of ecological gardens & landscapes. Based on the principles and philosophy of Permaculture. Tending the land to create beautiful, abundant and thoughtful places for people and wildlife.
I work as a gardener of the land to creatively work towards a goal of regeneration and sustainability. I believe that the best designs are created over time and allowed to organically evolve

"Sid has designed a wildlife friendly garden and then created it for us. We are so happy with the results which include an edible woodland which the wild birds and we are now enjoying. Sid is very productive, knowledgable, reliable and enthusiastic" Bea, Falmouth
The Wild Edible Garden
A short video tour of an edible forest garden I created. The garden mimics the structure of an open woodland, combining vertical layers of edible and useful plants. Under-sown with a wildflower mix and including artistic wildlife habitats.
Biodiversity provides habitat & feed for wildlife
Abundant with fruit, greens, roots, medicine and tea plants
Natural beauty improves mental wellbeing
'We have been blown away by the creative journey Sid has taken us on. Our outside space is now an ever-changing, stimulating landscape to get lost in every time we go outside. Last night we all foraged for leaves and tempura'd what we found in situ whilst the bees, beetles and bats foraged around us. It's not a garden; it's a new way of life for us. We started with the idea of creating a meadow, but on the way Sid changed us and our understanding. Now there are numerous habitats, sequestering carbon, fostering a palpable increase of diversity of species, that feeds us sustainably as well. Couldn't recommend Sid's vision highly enough. He has a joyful approach to plant and ecology geekery that is infectious. Grab his expertise and passion before he gets famous!' Dr E.J
