Catherine's latest book, co-authored with Alex Johnson, Habitat Creation in Garden Design, is published by Crowood Press.

"A bramble thicket may be a wildlife habitat, but so is a garden, and potentially a very good one. Indeed if you were able to ask them, you would find that your bees, spiders and worms don't know they are in a garden." Ken Thompson, Professional Gardeners' Guild 

"There's good quotable advice on nearly every page." Ken Thompson, Professional Gardeners' Guild

"Creating designs that look and feel appealing to people ... is as important in this book as providing the right food, shelter and living quarters for wildlife." Annabel Downs, Garden Design Journal

"Though Habitat Creation pivots around invertebrates and animals in the garden, it doesn’t exclude human attendees.  This book invites the curious gardener to be part of the liveliness of a resilient ecosystem, and to immerse ourselves in the flora and fauna in our gardens." Jennifer Priester, Northwest Perennial Alliance

Catherine has also published two academic books, focusing on memory, change and process in landscape design: Reimagining Industrial Sites: changing histories and landscapes and Revealing Change in Cultural Landscapes: material, spatial and ecological considerations

These books examine people's perceptions of green spaces that were once derelict and touch on issues such as sustainability, habitat creation and preservation, landscape narratives and links with the past.

Catherine's first book, A New Naturalism, published by Packard Publishing, discusses how to design naturalistic planting schemes and includes interviews with key designers in the field.
