Richard Unsworth is a leading garden designer and writer based in Sydney, and the owner of renowned outdoor design store Garden Life. Having grown up in England, Richard moved to Sydney in the 1990s, where he furthered his love of gardening with formal study in urban horticulture and started his first business, focusing on inner-city garden design. In 2001, he opened his first store, Garden Life. He has since expanded his practice to work in larger spaces both in the city and further afield. Richard has contributed to the garden pages of both Belle and Good Weekend magazines. Passionate about the natural environment, he spends his free time restoring the heritage garden at Trincomalee, his home in Pittwater, and helping people better connect with nature and with each other through a series of bushwalks to raise money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
