Richard Martin with his dogs in garden

Richard Martin MI Hort., HND Hort.

Plan to Garden is wholly owned by Richard Martin. Discovering a passion for gardening at an early age, Richard went onto train at the renowned Hillier Nurseries where he developed his extensive plant knowledge. He gained his formal qualifications at Writtle Horticultural College before embarking on a career in agriculture for several years. In 1992, Richard decided to return to his first love of gardening and founded Plan To Garden.

Richard’s creativity and talent for the use of space, has resulted in the creation of many acclaimed gardens in East Anglia and further afield.

Established in 1992, Plan to Garden offers excellence in Garden Design and Landscaping.

Through our comprehensive range of services, we provide everything needed to achieve the perfect garden. Whatever the objective, whether it be the rural idyll of a country estate or a contemporary city courtyard, we work closely with our clients to help them realise the full potential of their outside space, creating a beautiful garden to be enjoyed now, and in the generations ahead. We are a small Norfolk-based company, whose personal approach and exacting attention to detail has resulted in the creation of some very special gardens – a selection of which are shown here on our website.
