Jade Goto is an RHS Chelsea award winning landscape architect and garden designer. Her most recent work, a garden for international company Crabtree & Evelyn, combined the heritage of the company with their modern day vision by taking the planting palette of a traditional English garden, breaking it apart and reconstructing it in a contemporary style. It received high praise for the originality of the design and innovative use of materials, such as large copper & glass planters and the use of seaweed in the planting palette.
In 2012 the practice created The QR Code Garden for Chelsea Flower Show, a design that grabbed the public and media’s attention due to the cutting edge combination of technology and horticulture. It was the first time technology had been used in a garden at the famous flower show. The following year the RHS presented her with Best in Show, at BBC Gardeners World, for The Austerity Garden.
The practice was founded by Jade Goto in 2010. After a career working for London based Landscape Architectural firms on a variety of prestigious projects, including Candy & Candy’s Noho Square, she formed her own practice.
Jade now runs a succesful Brighton based design practice, with work drawing on culture, design and fine art married with a love of planting and a unique and inspiring way of envisioning garden spaces no matter what the scale. Whether delving into heritage or hyper-modern techniques, her love of botanicals is evident within her work. The practice has a broad and extensive knowledge base and is currently undertaking commissions across the UK and internationally.
