Jonathan Craggs provides a complete residential landscape design service from survey and design to installation. He designs new custom landscapes as well as renovations to existing gardens, in traditional or contemporary styles. Quality space planning, attention to detail and subtle balancing of architectural elements and plantings, result in elegant, yet practical gardens.
Jonathan Craggs works closely with clients, architects, interior designers and his team of craftsmen and landscape professionals, throughout the design and installation, facilitating the smooth running of the project and ensuring a unified wholeness. Drawing inspiration from cultural sources and landscape styles around the world, Jonathan’s skill in revealing and enhancing the unique qualities of each site creates gardens that are timeless.
Projects are undertaken throughout the world, focusing primarily on the western provinces, and particularly Southern Vancouver Island, Greater Vancouver and the Gulf Islands. All work is carried out with sensitivity to the surrounding environment — the aim being to make each garden layout seem inevitable and congruent within its setting. Completed projects range from formally structured architectural layouts to naturalistic gardens that blend seamlessly with native landscapes and vegetation.
Jonathan Craggs trained in Residential Landscape Design at the Inchbald School of Design in London, England, and in Horticulture at the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden at Wisley in Surrey, England.
