About the Real Green Gardener
Steve Howes, I am a Qualified Garden Designer and Horticulturalist and the Director of The Real Green Gardener. I am a member of the Institute of Garden Design and have a RHS certificate in Horticulture. I'm currently studying my Advance Diploma in Garden Design at Kingston Maurward, I have 10 years experience working in some of the finest gardens in Chelsea, Kensington, Notting Hill and Hampstead, including several designed by Gold Medal Winners at the Chelsea Flower Show. For 3 years I was Head Gardener at a North London Memorial garden Designed by William Robinson. It was working in his garden where I got an insight into the ‘The Wild Garden’ that truly inspired me and fired my passion for plants and natural spaces.
The Real Green Gardener evolved from the desire to work with our natural environment, designing and building beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy.
