Alexa Ryan-Mills

freelance planting designer

Planting design plays an essential role in bringing together people and place, creating beautiful and sustainable spaces that promote wellbeing and biodiversity. But it’s too often tacked on at the end and copy and pasted from a favourite list or another scheme somewhere else. It can be so much more than that.

Do you need to bring in planting design expertise on public realm, commercial or residential projects where you lack the capacity in-house?

Are you a small studio looking to outsource planting design so you can focus on growing your business?
Are you winning larger projects that need more time and focus on planting design than you can currently give?
Do you have a project that needs something different from what you normally provide when it comes to planting design?

I can work with you either as a behind-the-scenes resource or as a visible member of your team on larger projects. I earned a diploma in Planting Design with distinction at London College of Garden Design in 2021. There I was taught by Andrew Fisher Tomlin and the likes of Nigel Dunnett, Neil Lucas and Tony Kirkham - all leaders in their respective fields. I have been running a small garden design practice in east London since 2018, having trained at leading horticultural school, Capel Manor College. I'm now offering freelance planting design services to garden designers and landscaper architects.

Get in touch if you’d like to arrange a chat.

Presenting your designs in a clear and realistic manner can really help to 'sell the dream' to your clients, reduce time spent on revisions and improve the overall cohesion and efficiency of the design and build stages.

You may not be using the most up to date 3D visualisation techniques during the design process. This is where I can help. I am an independent and affordable freelance artist that produces 3D visuals, videos, interactive panoramas and 2D plans for businesses in the garden design industry. I am based in Nottingham but work with designers in the UK and Ireland.

I am currently experiencing an expansion period in my work and therefore looking for new contacts to work with. My current contacts have found that by using my service they have had a dramatically higher instruction rate with their clients, thanks to clear and beautiful presentations of their designs.

To see examples of my work, please look at my Instagram page: RerenderUK or look at this 2020 highlights reel on Youtube: ReRender Project Highlights 2020

If this sounds of interest to you, you have any further questions or would like more information and examples, I would love to hear from you.

Thank you.
