London Landscape Architects and Garden Designers

Whatever your London garden looks like, and whatever its size, you can probably benefit from the services of a London landscape architect. If your neat rectangular flower beds and manicured lawn just aren’t cutting it anymore and you have grander aspirations, that’s where professional garden designers in London can come in. Not only can a landscape architect design a garden that a Chelsea award winner might be proud of, they can also completely change the value of your home by looking at your landscape architecture as a whole. The work of a landscape architect serves much more than your garden; it makes the most of your outdoor space in a way that showcases your entire home. Landscape architects and garden designers in London vary in their range of services, so think carefully about what you want from your garden design professional and how extensive a project it will be before hiring them.

Featured Reviews for Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
Charlotte Rowe Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"We approached Charlotte Rowe to completely redesign and re-landscape our 1½ acre garden in Somerset. We were looking for someone who would understand what we were looking for and could meet our list of requirements delivering a high quality finish in keeping with our a 17th-century farmhouse and the surrounding land. It was quite a large, complex project with lots of different elements to it including a potager/vegetable garden, an orchard, a pool area and new drive and car parking areas, plus we also had issues with soil contamination – in other words, we needed to be in excellent and experienced hands. Charlotte and her team delivered a thoroughly professional service and communicated with us effectively throughout. She came up with some wonderful ideas which we would never have thought of. We especially love the beautiful gravel garden with grasses, perennials, roses and climbers and are delighted with how the overall design works so well with the surrounding landscape. Her attention to detail was very much appreciated."

Kate Eyre Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"To Kate and her team: Our family is delighted with the new garden that you have created for us. We did not know what to do with our former dull and neglected garden. Your inspirational and thoughtful design has transformed our garden into a joyful living space, full of colour and vibrant shrubs and flowers, which we cherish and enjoy. Your team were a pleasure to have around, working relentlessly to finish the project to high standard, on time and on budget. We happily recommend Kate Eyre to anyone who is looking for professional help with their garden. THANK YOU Renate & Lindsay"

Tom Howard Garden Design and Landscaping
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"We were recommended Tom by a friend who had worked with him previously and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to further people. He has in fact already worked with a member of my staff! Tom knows his market well and is experienced and confident in leading his clients through the design / landscaping process. We started off our front garden being totally re-designed but because we were so pleased with Tom's work we went on to have our rear garden landscaped which we could not be more pleased with. Tom has a great eye and I really do highly recommend him!"
- Alexandra Davidson
Silva Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"Garden Builders have worked with Silva Landscapes for over 15 years. Roberto is an excellent landscape architect/garden designer. He approach is always unique and you will get an original design. Silva Landscapes work with the best, so their recommendations should be taken on board. I always look forward to tendering for Silva Landscapes works."
- The Garden Builders
Kate Gould Gardens
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"With her amazing vision Kate Gould transformed my garden/patio into a modern inviting outside space. The space is divided into 2 "rooms", one leading out from the sitting room, the other from the master bedroom, divided by a water feature, a pergola and a miniature hedge. The whole area is paved with recessed lighting to maximise the effect at night, and a wall at the far end is disguised by mirrors - creating an illusion of a much larger outside space and reflecting the light. The work had been carried out to perfection by the dedicated team recommended by Kate. We are delighted with Kate's creation and the wonderful service we received from her team. It has become a talking point in terms of garden design possibilities among our friends and neighbours."

Peter Reader Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"We knew our garden needed a revamp, and we wanted it to be “grown-up” but still welcoming, but had few preconceived ideas. Not being gardeners ourselves, we didn’t have any plant knowledge but knew the styles we did and didn’t like. Peter, through relaxed discussion and an exchange of images, of gardens and plants, somehow managed to gauge the sort of thing we were hoping for. We were genuinely excited by Peter’s design when we saw it on paper and it was a pleasure to see the reality appearing gradually as the work progressed. We now have a garden we love and can be proud of – relaxed and elegant at the same time. Almost a year on, we still smile every time we look out of the window. The garden has remained a wonderful focal point throughout the winter months, thanks to Peter's thoughtful planting, and with Spring not far off, we are looking forward to the bulbs Peter introduced us to putting in an appearance."

Harrington Porter
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"Fantastic company to deal with, always professional and polite. Communication is spot on. Their gardens are always if the highest quality."
- Chris Hudson
Ruth Willmott Associates
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"This atmospheric garden, a celebration of the female spirit, makes you think. First the tapestry of flowers draws you in: a patchwork of pink and white, including Aquilegia ‘Rose Barlow’, Lupin ‘Blossom’, and Iris sibirica ‘Pink Haze’, dotted with pure white trunked birches, Betula jacquemontii, and edged with tall hedges of yew. Next you notice the curving stone pathway at the heart of the garden representing a DNA double helix, then the silvery sculpture of a naked woman holding her head high, reflected in a series of shadowy water pools rippling outwards. The explanation: Ruth Willmott lost her sister-in-law to breast cancer in 2014 and this garden is her tribute. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, 130 women are diagnosed with it every day. If Ruth’s garden design makes more women check their breasts regularly, it will have done its most important job. Breastcancernow.org"

Georgia Lindsay Garden Design
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"Georgia did an amazing job transforming our backyard into a fantastic garden space. Our spec was very brief, we knew what we wanted the space to do so but not how it would look. Georgia was very considerate of our needs and came up with a fantastic looking, and functional, design. Her brave use of colour particularly really made the space, she came up with designs we would never have thought of. All our friends and family have been wowed with the space! Would highly recommend."
- David Evans
PM Landscapes
Landscape Architects and Garden Designers in London
"We worked with PM landscapes to do our garden and we can highly recommend their services. They have helpeds us design, create and build a beautiful and functional garden. They are a friendly and professional team and it was a pleasure to work with them."

What is a landscape architect?


A landscape architect will handle all design, supply, construction and administrative elements of your garden or landscaping project. They will take into account your needs, the London climate and unique advantages and constraints of the landscape architecture. Typically, work will be based on ecological and environmental considerations, and a garden will be planned not only to look its best but also to facilitate future maintenance and growth so that it continues to flourish. A London landscape architect can also design any outdoor buildings that are to be featured in your garden. Everything from design blueprints through to the plants themselves should be provided by your London landscape architect. If there is other architectural development taking place on your site, bring the landscape architect in as early as possible.

The expertise a landscape architect can apply to understanding your space and the natural environment could be vital to planning your project. Let your London landscape architect work closely with your architect, surveyor and any other contractors in order to develop landscape architecture that works in accordance with any other construction. This is important from a design perspective as well as on a practical level – changes to the grading of a landscape and modifications such as drainage can have serious implications on the viability of your land for extensive building and structural works. In order to resolve any planning permission issues, submit all applications for building and landscape architecture together, well ahead of the project.

What is a garden designer?


The scope of garden designers, or landscape gardeners, is often more limited to green space projects which will optimise your existing outdoor space rather than altering the landscape architecture as a whole. Whereas landscape architects specialise in the structural aspect of garden planning and building, garden designers in London will carry out projects that are of aesthetic and horticultural value. Landscape gardeners will make your garden the best version of itself with features such as walkways, patios, water features, fences and lighting, as well as choosing the right plants, trees and flowers. The practical role of a garden designer may vary by firm – some offer just the plans, requiring a separate contractor, while others fulfil the project in its entirety, from conceptualisation of the landscape gardening to construction. Don’t be put off by the former if you happen to find a good London garden designer that you like – he or she will have local industry connections to introduce you to quality, reliable gardening professionals with whom they have existing relationships. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & garden designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Lawn & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios, Sheds & Summerhouses.

How do I choose landscape architects or garden designers in London?


When choosing your London garden designer or landscape architect, be sure to research their qualifications and look at examples of their previous work. A portfolio of previous landscape architecture or garden projects is important to ascertain both their credentials as well as their style. Once you have shortlisted or chosen your architect or designer, an on-site meeting is essential so they can see exactly what they’ll be working with. Stay briefed on all plans and developments, both before and during the project as a plan you approved previously may change during the course of the project. Be very clear on your budget – just like plans, costs may alter while work is underway so ensure your professional keeps you informed and does not incur additional expense without approval. If you are open-minded and budget-conscious, consider approaching new graduates keen for experience, who may negotiate a lower rate than more experienced professionals.

Questions to ask prospective landscape architects or garden designers in London:


  • What do your services include?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been landscape architects or garden designers in London?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar landscape architecture or garden projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
