About No.30 Design Studio

The Beginning...

No.30 Design Studio was set up by garden designer Sara Edwards, after completing her Diploma at the Pickard School of Garden Design.  Born and bred in Herefordshire, she lived in Manchester for many years before returning back to Herefordshire in 2013.

The Inspiration...

Sara was inspired to become a garden designer after she re-designed the garden of her family home, she inherited from her mother. As a self-confessed plantaholic and amateur gardener from a green fingered family; she was overwhelmed by and the positive responses she received after sharing pictures of the garden on social media; and thought there was an opportunity to turn a hobby and passion into a career. Signing up for the diploma, 12 months later she graduated with Distinction.

The idea for calling her business No.30 Design Studio came from the house where she grew up, and whose garden sparked the idea for the business....No.30....


Prior to becoming a garden designer, Sara built a successful career in the computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing industry after graduating in 2003 from the University of Manchester with a First-Class honours degree in 3D furniture Design and Making.

For the last five and a half years of she has worked for    TJ Crump Oakwrights Ltd, a leading oak framed house building company in Herefordshire, as a senior designer, designing bespoke luxury oak framed homes around the country.

No.30 Design Studio offers a service that benefits from Sara's history of studying art and design throughout her education, coupled with all the design skills gained in her career. This culminates in designs drawn from wide ranging experience and knowledge.  Even though the style can vary according to the specific brief, Sara relishes researching aspects specific to a project and expanding her knowledge even further, creating inspiring, considered gardens, perfect for the client’s lifestyle and needs, far beyond what they could have imagined.

The design studio is very keen on collaboration with artists, sculptors and designers, finding collaboration a way to keep invigorating the creative process.
