Ben Lannoy graduated from the prestigious Central St Martins School of Art in 2005 with a foundation in Spatial design and a BA in Theatre design. He then went on to study at Painshill Parks Garden Design School where he was taught by world renowned garden designers Robin Templar Williams and Moira Farnham.
Ben started off his landscaping career working for an established landscape maintenance company that also owned a florist and he quickly became a flower arranging guru. Not something he would tell his friends! This is where his passion for plants evolved.
As part of the company he worked on high end commercial contracts such as Mercedes World at Brooklands, Porsche showrooms in Guildford and Wentworth Golf Club on the Wentworth Estate along with numerous exterior landscaping contracts. This helped him gain an unmatchable attention to detail which he believes he carried on through his own company in every aspect.
He then started up his own successful garden maintenance and interior plant displays company in 2007 working as the interior landscaper for Moët Hennessey, London, high end residential and commercial properties and various TV contracts. He later sold the business to concentrate on his skills as a garden designer for an established landscape company with over 20 years in the industry. He has worked on a whole range of projects within the industry from landscapes for big budget TV shows to designing and maintaining gardens for a needy neighbour! He is passionate about plants, supporting nature whenever possible and will always make sure he leaves a project with a happy customer and his reputation intact.
