Garden and landscape design

 

Antony Young was educated in England at Radley and St John’s College, Oxford where he took an MA in geography. He has all his life been keenly interested in gardening and the creation of gardens. After a career in industry he decided to turn to what had always been his principal outside interest.

 

He received his first garden design commission in 1990 and since then has undertaken a succession of extremely interesting projects, mainly in large, privately owned gardens.

Garden talks

Talks covering the creation and development of the garden or on a range of other horticultural topics can be arranged. Please telephone Antony Young to discuss what you require. All talks include digital images from a sizeable library built up over the years.
