A Designer’s Eye

For 40 years Arabella Lennox-Boyd has designed landscapes around the world—from strikingly modern rooftops in London and Hong Kong to the estates of an English duke, a Belgian queen, and Sting. A recipient of six Chelsea Gold Medals and the prestigious RHS Veitch Memorial Medal, she is a preeminent plantswoman who relishes growing from seed the rare tree and shrub  specimens she incorporates as structural elements in her designs. She is known for her herbaceous borders, perfectly suited to their environments and bursting with color, form, and texture—including those on glorious display at Gresgarth Hall, her enchanting home and lifelong design project. Her most recent work includes the graceful landscape surrounding the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London, designed by Zaha Hadid, as well as private residences in Kiev, Greece, England, and the United States.
