Harpers & Queen
- May 2002
Maria Örnberg was a window-dresser, as well
as a model for several years, before turning her
talents to garden design, so it is not surprising
that her attention to detail is second to none.
After a few years of running a garden business
in Namibia, she came to London to train at the
British Gardening School. And after a stint working
with Hewitt Landscaping where she was involved
in projects such as Ronnie Wood's Harrington Club
in London she set up her own business. Preferring
the clean Scandinavian approach, with strong shapes,
colours and clean lines rather than anything too
pretty, Maria's main objective is to ensure that
the garden can be used as an extension of the house.
