Lindsay Sullivan, Landscape Architect, BA(Hons) DipPSGD CMLI
Having worked in the graphic design industry for 10 years, Lindsay launched a career change in 2007 by studying garden design. She won the inaugural Chris Beardshaw Mentoring Scholarship the following year which included training at RHS Wisley, working closely with sponsors Bradstone and even appearing on Gardeners’ World. Lindsay won two RHS medals for show gardens during this time: a gold medal at the Malvern Autumn Show and a silver gilt for a small garden at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. Lindsay went on to further her plant knowledge through training at the Bristol Botanic Garden. Before joining Colvin & Moggridge in 2016, Lindsay was involved in projects both in the UK and abroad. Highlights include creation of a 10,000m2 wildflower meadow; project management and implementation of a build for a boutique hotel restoration in Exeter; and design concepts for a facility investigating planting and water in arid climates for the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research in Kuwait City. Since joining the practice, Lindsay has run the implementation of a private memorial garden. The challenge of the exposed rural site with expansive views was to create an area of shelter, tranquil yet teaming with life whilst integrating naturally with the setting and maintaining the views. Another, very different, planting project involved the design of an extensive tree planting scheme for a new golf course at JCB world headquarters in Staffordshire. Views were fundamental to this design: blocking some and enhancing others depending on the direction of play.
