Welcome exciting projects

Owner and garden designer of TLG Workshop

 

Cynthia is a keen organic gardener and farmer. Apart from working in her studio, she enjoys working in TLG organic farm and garden. She finds gardening being the best kind of meditation as NATURE has the greatest power to bring out our six senses. 

 

Cynthia has built The Little Garden (~ 100 sq. feet) and TLG Farm (~ 15,000 sq. feet) to showcase the possibility of garden design on a different scale, as independent garden design service is quite a new profession in Hong Kong. She conducts planting experiments to ensure that new plants recommended to her clients are mostly planted in her garden or farm so that growing and flowering outcomes are predictable.

We communicate with clients to take care of their concerns in every aspect.
