The move follows the announcement that garden design partnership between Lock and Chris Deakin had been dissolved and their DeakinLock firm in the process of being wound up. Lock is due to develop the design and build division of the £5.5 million-turnover company under the leadership of managing director Dan Riddleston and chief executive John Wyer.

Lock, who has 30 years’ experience in garden design, has been both a chief executive and chair of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) and a judge for national award schemes, including currently serving on the judging panel of the BALI National Landscape Awards, held in association with Horticulture Week.

He said he had admired Bowles & Wyer’s work for some time. "I’m immensely proud of the work I achieved at DeakinLock and am looking forward to developing my design and project management skills and having the opportunity to work on larger-scale commercial projects as part of the Bowles & Wyer team."

Wyer said that design and build has always been at the heart of the company’s operations but there is still "a huge opportunity" for development.

"Jason’s knowledge and expertise in design-led project management and his talent for building and maintaining client relationships will bring a new focus to that part of the business and I’ve no doubt that it will flourish under his leadership. I’m delighted to welcome him to the team at the beginning of an exciting new phase for the business."
