The Garden Guru: Philippa O’Brien

Are you happy with your outdoor space?

‘I always work to the client’s brief,’ smiles garden designer, Pip O’Brien. ‘It’s my responsibility to make their ideas a reality, whether that means creating a retreat with year-round colour, a clean, ultra-modern concept or a low-maintenance space that accommodates a vegetable patch, children’s play area, pond or work studio.’

Having caught the gardening bug helping her grandmother, Pip studied Horticulture at Reading University and worked as a gardening journalist. Seeking a job that fitted better around her children, she then launched a design consultancy. She has won medals at the Chelsea, Hampton Court and Zurich Flower Shows and built a successful business specialising in London gardens.

‘I take time to chat in detail to every new client (the first consultation is free), look at the site and ask questions. Armed with that information, I write a fully-costed proposal. I will design from scratch or refine an existing space and my experienced contractors will build it.’ And does Pip have a signature style? ‘I love plants. Without spending a fortune, you can make such a difference with them. Plants just make people – and wildlife – happy.’

KEEP THINGS LOCAL IS A MEDIA BUSINESS WITH A UNIQUE LOCAL FOCUS

The company publishes four flagship magazines (Chelsea Locals, Chiswick Locals, Richmond Locals and Hammersmith Locals) with more launches planned in London and across the UK. The prime focus of each of these quarterly magazines is to showcase and support the independent traders and small businesses who do so much to give these areas their individual retail character and community spirit. This is achieved through dedicated advertorials which are written, designed and photographed by an experienced team lead by Neil McKelvie.

In every issue, these advertorials are complemented by feature articles which turn the spotlight on different aspects of neighbourhood life and interviews with notable local figures.In addition to appearing in the magazines, every advertorial is also published in the Keep Things Local newsletters, on the website and on social media. Get in touch to be featured in our Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring issues.
