Shakespeare said all the world’s a stage but for Georgia Lindsay it is more of a garden.

The 44-year-old, from Crystal Palace, originally trained in theatre design and is a mural artist and interior decorator.

But since 2010 she developed a passion for garden design and is now down to the final four in this year’s Grand Designs competition for her small city garden design.

Croydon Guardian: Georgia Lindsay has designed a family friendly garden

She said: "Maximising a small space to create an interesting enjoyable place to relax is my forte.

"It is a family garden, where relaxation and play co-exist harmoniously.

"The garden has many sustainable, green features which is a strong ethos behind the Grand Designs image.

"I’m thrilled to be a finalist in this year’s competition."
