Who says solar power can’t be gorgeous? The people of New Caledonia are out to prove the naysayers wrong with what may be the most beautiful solar farm on the planet.

I have designed and built many gardens over the years and more water features and ponds than I care to count! I am now engaged in my most ambitious project to date – landscaping the 3 hectares at Shangri La Farm where I have now planted well over 3000 trees, including 2200 British native species kindly supplied by The Woodland Trust, along with many other specimen trees grown in the nursery from seed. The aim is to create a unique landscape – partly wildlife haven and partly architectural design.
