Introduction to Artemis

Artemis is a Landscape Design partnership comprising Sally Mays CMLI and Helen Lowery PG Dip LD

Both Sally and Helen have strong backgrounds and training in art, design and landscape architecture and we combine problem solving, spatial and environmental awareness, and conceptual thinking with sound communication skills to provide the foundations necessary to collaborate with other professionals across the multidisciplinary fields of landscape practice.


The challenge of combining imaginative concepts with the more pragmatic aspects of landscape architecture inspires Artemis. Our aim is to push some of the boundaries within this field
