William Templeman is an ecologist and the former manager of two successful landscaping firms. His love of experimentation, innovation and perfecting landscaping techniques, along with pond and meadow planting, means that his garden approach is part scientific laboratory, part wildlife haven.
William's love for cooking has seen him become a passionate potager and guerrilla vegetable grower, while his skills in traditional green woodwork have resulted in his meticulously crafted yurts becoming some of the most sought-after in the country.
