Based in Jersey, Channel Islands, McArthur Landscapes is a family run practice specialising in garden and landscape design and construction.
Katie McArthur has lived in Jersey since the age of 3, growing up surrounded by beautiful sensory rich surroundings and gaining a strong educational background. She worked as a legal secretary for 10 years before changing her career path after taking a Foundation degree in Art & Design at Highlands College. She then moved to Cornwall with her husband and six month old son in 2005 to start a degree on the groundbreaking BA(Hons) Garden Design: Arts & Environment course. She graduated in 2008 gaining a First Class Degree and two weeks later gave birth to their second child, a daughter.
Katie is a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers and is currently working towards her full membership.
We have now been building gardens since 2008, working on a variety of projects including hospital gardens for NHS trusts in the UK, school spaces, private gardens and courtyards in the UK and Jersey, corporate spaces and planning applications for developers. Every project is different and everyday is an exciting new challenge. We love what we do and strive to produce gardens that our clients will love for years to come.
Katie is also a keen florist and enjoys creating and designing with colours, scents and textures.
Paul McArthur has over 20 years construction experience working for public and private companies and clients in Jersey and the UK and holds a HNC in Construction & Building Studies. Paul moved from Scotland to the Island at the age of 18 and has undertaken a number of courses at Highlands College. In 2001, Katie and Paul were part of the Jersey Overseas Aid team that built a hospital in Kiwoko, Uganda. Paul was in charge of the build and taught the rest of the team essential skills for the build to be a success. Paul has a keen eye for detail and enjoys creating gardens and houses for clients all over the Island.
We also employ labourers, carpenters, builders, landscapers and sub-contract electricians and essential trades
