My name is Christina Sullivan. 

I live and work, designing gardens, in Cornwall. I'm inspired by this incredible county and its stunning coastal environment. I design gardens that celebrate Cornwall and its unique coastal location and climate.

I am a Pre-registered Member of the Society of Garden Designers (SGD) and am a member of the editorial advisory team for the award winning Garden Design Journal (GDJ). 

Created to enrich the lives of those lucky enough to live in Cornwall, the gardens I design have a strong emphasis on providing a sanctuary for both people and wildlife.

Full collaboration with clients is key to the success of my projects. The inspiring landscape of Cornwall is the starting point of a design journey for my clients to an exciting and beautiful garden.


With a special interest in coastal locations, environmental awareness determines the materials I specify in my designs. Soil science, plant biology and the ecological impacts of horticulture guide the type of plants I recommend and where they are sourced from.

My garden design experience began in 2004 when I trained in Design and Plantsmanship at the Duchy College, Cornwall. I also have a BSc(Hons) Environmental Science. Since then I have designed gardens, predominantly in Cornwall, in both coastal and inland locations. 

At Green Shoots Design  I work hard to deliver innovative and inspiring garden design for people and wildlife. 

Beautiful, environmentally-friendly gardens.
