Dario’s love of botany has been a life long journey, and developed along the way to include a fascination for art and design. As such he first studied at The Agricultural Institute in Milan, where he completed a five year course, with an additional final year specializing in botany and cultivation techniques, completed in Como.

He holds a Masters in Landscape Design from the NAD in Verona. He also holds a Diploma in planting design from the London College of Garden Design.

After graduation, he moved to Switzerland where he set up his own company that encompassed all elements of horticulture from design to aftercare. A continued desire to expand his knowledge led to him selling the company and working in Australia and New Zealand for three years, acquiring an exceptionally well-rounded and international knowledge of plant life.

England’s historical links with the evolution of garden design made it a natural next step for him to make the move here and continue to explore and develop his passion for bringing design to life.

At the start of 2021 he set up his own company here in the UK and continues to work on both sides of the business, creating new designs and overseeing the gardens of our aftercare clients.
