Matt Nichol Garden Design is an award winning Cheshire garden design practice with a reputation for creating beautiful gardens to suit modern lifestyles. The practice specialises in private gardens and has worked on numerous projects ranging from large estates to small roof terraces. We design bespoke gardens of all shapes, sizes, styles and budgets.

Our design practice is unique, because each designer in the practice is unique. Our practice philosophy is very simple, we aim to produce attractive, interesting and well considered exterior spaces for our clients. These 'gardens' need to meet the practical and aesthetic needs of the client and are always considerate to any budget limitations that may be imposed.

We draw our design inspiration from wide range of influences and this helps us to educate our clients about the latest trends and planting styles.

Although the majority of our garden design commissions are in Cheshire, the Northwest and the Midlands, we also accept commissions from across the UK and internationally. We remain a small practice and devote considerable attention to every detail to ensure our clients realise their garden vision.
