  • Dan Newby

    Owner

    Dan was inspired to love the natural world by his hero David Attenborough, so before setting up his garden design business 12 years ago (after 11 years in city banking), he travelled the world checking out the wonders of the natural world and gardens like Kirstenbosch in SA. Back in the UK, inspired and full of enthusiasm, Dan set to work on ‘Dreamscape Gardens’. Working alone, with just one van, and a cupboard for an office, he studied every night after work, learning about plants, design, landscaping and building a complete garden from scratch. Twelve years later and Dreamscape Gardens is a well-established, respected and successful company employing 12 people and a fleet of vehicles! Dreamscape has had enormous success with show gardens recently (Monty Don encouraged Dan at Manchester’s Dig the City in 2104 - where Dreamscape took gold and best in show). With his most innovative garden ‘The Live Garden’ at RHS Tatton Flower Show in 2017 Dreamscape was awarded a bronze medal...   Show more

  • Martin Williams

    Senior Landscape Designer

    Martin’s scientific background (design tech, maths and physics) gives him the skills to find creative solutions to all sorts of challenges, and his naturally inquisitive nature provides him with the desire. Originally intent on a career in architecture, he had a change of heart after he was knocked sideways by a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney. A seed was planted (!) and he decided to look at career options related to gardens and design, finally electing to study Landscape Architecture, or in his own words, ‘Design of Outdoor Space’. After graduating, Martin spent a year with Groundwork, before joining Dreamscape as senior designer. He’s our interface with all our design clients (luckily he’s a great ‘people person’), drilling down to discover what their garden is really going to mean to them and how they’re going to use it. He always finds the imaginative solution to deliver their dreams! Martin enjoys football. He'as also Advanced open water scuba diver! ...   Show more

  • Billy Yates

    Landscape Design Manager

    Landscape design manager Billy manages a team of five, usually working on two or three projects at the same time. Fortunately he’s a good organiser! His particular interest is in ‘eco-gardening’, so he prefers to use recycled products wherever possible, or at the very least those with the lowest environmental impact. He has a degree in mechanical engineering and the skills he brings to Dreamscape Gardens from that background are attention to detail and excellent mathematical abilities. ...   Show more
