Award-Winning Garden Designer Reading
Adam Vetere is an inspirational, innovative and award-winning garden designer operating in Reading and the Berkshire area. In 2020, he won two Best of Houzz awards for Design and Service. Utilising his expertise in horticulture, graphic design, practical landscaping and business design, Adam has worked on projects both large and small, all of which he executes with the same passion for the unique challenges that they bring. Adam is driven by his enthusiasm for plants and sustainable design.
“I’ve designed gardens both large and small, town or country, drawing upon inspiration from the four corners of the world, utilising my passion for plants and inspirational design.”
As an accomplished designer, Adam’s first designs were in the early 1990s whilst he was working for a reputable landscape design and construction company. He worked there for several years.
After his extensive graphical design training, Adam had the opportunity to put his training to good use; his designs were visionary and practical as he was building and constructing the designs himself, understanding the practical and budgetary limits of the materials and the time needed to implement a design scheme.
A subtle change of career led Adam into a business and financial design path, but underlying the new role was the need for design and the future; how will the business grow, how will it develop, how will it succeed in a particular environment? These are all the fundamentals that a great garden designer needs to understand with the plants, the climate, their positioning and their companions.
