Marriott was an integral part of David Austin Roses for over 35 years and at the firm’s headquarters in Albrighton, where he was the font of knowledge for all matters relating to roses. Marriott has played an important part in the development and popularization of English roses and has intimate knowledge of all of the 200 plus English Roses bred and introduced by David Austin Roses. 

As a garden designer, he is known for dense romantic beds, whether purely roses or mixed in perennials. He has designed many rose gardens and borders around the world of varying sizes, both public and private. Public gardens include the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Queen Mary’s Rose Garden in Regent’s Park, Hampton Court Palace, Wynyard Hall, Trentham Gardens, and the David Austin Garden near Osaka in Japan. His private clients are primarily in the U.K., the U.S., and Europe, but he has also worked on gardens in New Zealand, China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Russia, and even Bhutan.
