Ruth Marshall

Ruth leads the design team and is CEO of Cool Gardens. Leading the team to RHS Gold and its position as the favoured design and landscaping team for a wide range of Private Clients, Specialist Developers and Architects Practices.

Ruth co-founded Cool Gardens in 2001. A love of gardens, plants, architecture and the natural world all come together in her approach to a design project.

Ruth has an Oxford BA and a Cambridge PhD in Geology and spent 10 years in the city as a partner in a Business Strategy company, before taking formal training in Garden Design at the Pickard School of Design. Drawing from all these areas, her work is characterised by strong lines, wonderful use of space, and heavenly planting. Most importantly she is skilled at hearing and understanding a brief from a client and in working with the design team to deliver designs that delight.

Realising very early on that our clients want a garden not just a design, Ruth has shaped the organisation around delivering that in a highly flexible approach.
