James has worked within the fields of landscape design and construction for over 20 years. He co-founded Roundfield in 2011.
James studied Garden Design at the University of Greenwich and after graduating in 2002 worked as a designer builder in London creating bespoke gardens for private clients. Preferring to focus on the public realm he made the decision to study Landscape Architecture in 2005. He went on to work with long established practices, Gillespies, Battle McCarthy and MacGregor Smith to associate level and has delivered successful projects at all scales in multiple sectors both private and public. James met Tom whilst working at Gillespies where they shared a vision for genuinely sustainable landscape design.
Prior to forming Roundfield James studied Permaculture and organic horticulture at Ragmans Lane Farm in Gloucestershire with renowned teacher Patrick Whitefield. This shared learning naturally helped to form the Roundfield design ethos.
