What services do you provide?

Garden and Landscape Design

How would you describe your style?

"We are able to design in a number of different styles which is evident in the different types of gardens that we have designed and built. We aim to design gardens that suit the surroundings and the clients needs, rather than have a particular style we stamp on every garden as we see every project as different. This is evident with the photos we’ve used to showcase our work."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"The images below are an example of our recent work. We undertake a huge range of projects, from small-town gardens in Chelsea, to a country estate in Hampshire and a large contemporary garden for a young family in Richmond.

We recently designed and built a large outdoor entertaining space for a client in Kent. The brief was to design a space that really brought the outside in, giving the existing pool area an additional space to relax. The client loved the initial design renders and we commenced with the build, which included a covered lounge area, with outdoor television, outdoor kitchen/bar with polished concrete countertop, and matching central fire table. All works were built in house by our experienced landscape teams.

Another project that we have recently worked on is a large new build house in Surrey, we worked closely with the architect to design the garden matching the house and clients brief. We designed a classic contemporary garden, with deep borders, clean straight lines and well thought about entertaining areas. A Rill was installed that gently follows you as you walk down the garden working in and out of the rich perennial planting beds gradually revealing the different layers through the season, a central formal lawn space, and working garden with a contemporary bespoke greenhouse built at the back.
