After leaving college Rupert set up Keyscape Design and Construction back in 1993 joined by his wife Ruth Gwynn in 1999. Bitten by the bug of show gardens Rupert has gone on to build many award winning show gardens at some of the top gardening shows in the country.
Rupert has also been the landscape expert on many BBC gardening programmes both on camera and behind the scenes. TV appearances include Real Rake-Overs, Flying Gardener, Housecall and Weekend Gardener. He has also been asked to contribute to articles for the gardening magazine Gardening Which?
Keyscape Design & Construction are a creative landscape gardening company based in picturesque Pershore, Worcestershire.
A consistently award-winning team, they have received a number of Royal Horticultural Society medals at the Malvern Spring Garden Show, Hampton Court and Gardeners World Live at the NEC, building gardens for Chris Beardshaw, Ali Ward and for other designers.
We are delighted to have Rupert teaching with us on the One Year Garden Design Diploma Course where he shares his many years experience on all things landscaping and construction.
Rupert (right) started as a young man working for Cheltenham Parks Department as a labouring gardener.
Having learnt the basics from the roots, Rupert went on to do a full time course at Pershore College of Horticulture.
Whilst at college Rupert was a major team player in building the award winning show garden 'The Greening of Industry' at the 1992 Chelsea Flower Show.
The first and only year a group of students have won Best in Show and the Fiskar Sword of Excellence.
