Karen McClure – Director & Lead Designer

Karen has successfully grown Karen McClure Garden Design from her passion and love for the horticulture and landscaping industry.

Karen is the backbone and driving force behind KMGD that continues to learn, develop and grow her company. KMGD is the garden design practice that is always evolving and learning to provide our clients with the best service and garden designs year on year.

Karen champions everything about our industry – from attending events, seminars, awards ceremonies and trade shows, you are always likely to see a member of our great team present and chatting away with industry friends.

Not only is Karen passionate about her company, she is just as passionate about her team. Finding team members that fit within the company is important, with the right attitudes and beliefs, kindness and the ability to laugh with one another being a pre-requisite of our team ethos.

Outside of work Karen’s hobbies include plane spotting, shopping, haircuts and visiting Starbucks for her favourite earl grey tea!

Fiona Northover – Studio Manager & PA to Karen McClure

Fiona is the first point of contact for all clients, contractors and suppliers at Karen McClure Garden Design.

Fiona’s career started as a broker’s assistant to a busy desk of investment managers in the City.  She resumed work in 2016, utilising her skills working with a team offering outsourced support to varied small businesses in Kent.  It was here that she met Karen and as her business grew, so did Fiona’s role.

Fiona enjoys the variety of the work, the creative buzz and the interesting people she gets to meet in this inspiring industry.  Although her role is largely administration, she loves the involvement that the team has at every level as each highly individual project evolves.  She is passionate about ensuring that an outstanding customer service is delivered alongside the first class garden designs – she is a fundamental part of the team.

Outside of work Fiona’s hobbies include gardening, aromatherapy, walking her lovely dogs and stopping her husband building ‘stuff’ around their home and garden!

Fiona Campbell – Head of Projects

Fiona is our Head of Projects and resident ‘Captain’ of our team. She manages all client communications from the initial consultation right the way through to the end of the build. Fiona’s role is to help assist the team, manage all projects, and look after our clients needs.

Fiona has spent the last 6 years working in our exciting industry and has a wealth of experience working with both trade and retail customers. These kind of communication skills are invaluable when it comes to her job role as she deals with clients, landscapers, and suppliers.

Fiona is passionate about seeing a project through from start to finish and see the designs that our talented team create come to life!

She loves the variety of different tasks that this role has and loves being part of the ever growing and evolving KMGD team!

Outside of work Fiona’s hobbies include shopping, pub trips and socialising with friends.
