Botanicks Design Studio

Creating fabulous, practical gardens in
Surrey, Kent, Sussex and SE London.

“I love designing gardens that compel everyone to go outside more often.

Good aesthetics, horticulture and construction are vital, but so too are solutions for everyday practicalities, and insight into how the site will be used and maintained over time.

A good garden design is not only an investment in the future, it can literally pave the way for many years of going outside more often and making fabulous memories. “

– Nicky Chamberlain


Concept Design & Masterplanning

After agreeing a brief, we develop a Concept Design which considers how to get the best out of your particular outdoor space. The plan, images and references in the Concept Design Presentation help to visualise what it could look and feel like.

We strongly advise basing the design on a topographical survey to ensure the plans are realistic.

Detailing & Technical Documents

One of the most important (but not sexy!) parts of a design project is detailing exactly how your gorgeous Concept Design is brought to life. This usually includes several plan and technical drawings, and essential documents which are used by planning officers, landscapers and other contractors.

Plant Design, Sourcing & “Planting Up”

Planting is the last and usually the most transformational part of the project, creating atmosphere and vibrancy.

Detailed planting designs will take into account your individual site, your plans for aftercare, and the overall design concept. We can source bulbs, plants and trees and install your scheme as required.
