Matthew joined The Landscape Agency in November 2009, having enjoyed a very successful career with the Royal Horticultural Society for almost a decade.
The Landscape Agency are a landscape architecture and design practice specialising in ‘place making’ – understanding and responding to the specific qualities of a landscape space. The practice works in public, domestic and commercial design and Matthew is heading up the new London office of the practice, working with clients as diverse as The National Trust, English Heritage, The Royal Parks and high end commercial clients such as the multiple award winning Rudding Park Hotel and Feversham Arms Hotel.
From 2000 to 2009 Matthew ran two of the Society’s gardens, Hyde Hall in Essex and Harlow Carr in Yorkshire, concluding his time at the RHS in a cross garden capacity as Head of Creative Development. At both gardens Matthew established an ethos of working with the place and the environmental conditions, and utilising sustainable practices. Creative interpretation, innovative natural play and the engagement of families were central to the visitor experience. Both gardens enjoyed significant success during Matthew’s tenure, and he continues to have an involvement with the RHS as a volunteer supporting fundraising for educational projects.
Matthew writes for numerous publications, and has authored books on climate change, gardening techniques and garden design. He is a regular broadcaster on Radio 4’s Gardeners Question Time and is currently filming a second series of Landscape Man for Channel 4. The first series is due to air in April of 2010. He lectures on planting design, spatial design, and sustainability in gardens.
Matthew’s second book, New Gardening; How to Garden in a Changing Climate (Mitchell Beazley 2007) was awarded the prestigious Best Practical Book Award by the Garden Media Guild.
Matthew’s new book, Making a Garden, (Quadrille, March 2010) has been written in association with his TV series, Landscape Man.
