About me

Joaquin 400x470

My name is Joaquin from The Spanish Gardener in London.com

I’m Spanish and have been living in London for 18 years. I have a National Diploma in Garden Design from Writtle College, one of the UK’s leading horticultural colleges.

I offer garden maintenance, design and planting, as well as other garden services such as irrigation, turfing, etc.

London’s urban gardens offer the best opportunities to use window boxes, vases and pots. It is surprising the difference the addition of colour can add to a compact site. I specialize in designing seasonal displays and have a great knowledge of bulbs.

My English training and experience combined with an innate understanding of Mediterranean plants and planting can bring another dimension to a planting scheme for your outside space.

London gardens offer a challenge to the plantsman. Often they are small with either too little sun, or too much. Sometimes plants are exposed to excess pollutants from traffic.

A gardener needs an expert knowledge of plants and their ideal habitats to provide an ecosystem that can thrive and create an oasis of great beauty which will provide a refuge from the stresses of the city.  The right planting can even improve the air quality around your home with fragrant scents. With eight years experience in working with London clients with a variety of outside spaces, from large gardens to small basement entrances, I can ensure you have a stunning display of flowers and foliage, whatever the season.

Busy people need green areas: vases, window boxes, courtyards and such  that can look after themselves. Thought must be given to maintenance and the supply of water. A well prepared and adapted irrigation system should be one of the first thoughts. I have a installed a large number of watering systems at very competitive rates

You may only have room for window boxes, but they can offer a different horizon as you look from your window, a glimpse of paradise maybe.
