Why Choose Us?

  • The design team is led by Katina Cambridge who has been designing gardens for over 30 years.
  • We are fully qualified and experienced in Landscape Design, Horticulture, Construction, Law, Planning and Contracts. As Chartered Landscape Designers we have completed seven years of University and Professional Practice training followed by 30 years in practice.
  • We can address single issues (parking, privacy etc.) or the complete setting of the property.
  • Many Clients and Architects have been retained over the years as they take on new properties or relocate.

The practice welcomes new commissions and every project begins with a consultation for which there is a small fee.

As a guide only, we are unable to work on projects with a construction value of less than £10,000 (there is no upper limit) and our design fees are normally 10% of the final construction cost. This can vary widely so please talk to us first.

We are based in St Albans, Hertfordshire but cover many other areas in the South East.
