Dan Pearson to design for Abramovich

Landscape designer Dan Pearson has been hired by Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich to revamp the gardens of his new Chelsea home.
Pearson, who is designing London's garden bridge with ARUP and Thomas Heatherwick, is to create "an English country garden" in, Chelsea, London.

Pearson held a meeting last week with neighbours in flats in adjacent Beaufort Street, who objected to the proposals.
