I’m Jane Shankster, owner and designer of simple, elegant and spacious gardens at Arthur Road Landscapes.

I believe that spending more time outside is good for you and my goal is to design a garden where you can do the things you enjoy. Once you’ve got the right garden, you’ll be amazed at how much more you use it and how much pleasure it brings you.

I have a can-do, organised and professional approach that my clients really appreciate. They also tell me that I’m friendly, energetic and fun to work with. When I’m not designing gardens, I enjoy photography, long-distance trekking, fair-weather cycling, and looking over the fence at other people’s gardens.

I've been designing gardens since 2005 and I'm a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers.

Arthur Road Landscapes is based in Wimbledon and I design gardens all over south-west London and Surrey. Occasionally I work further afield.
