We believe that great design starts with good communication - with you, our client.

Cowen Garden Design

Gardens designed with our clients at their centre
The best gardens start with good communication with the client, followed by excellent design – applying experience, creativity and practical know-how to transform an ordinary tract of land into somewhere special that reflects your personality, lifestyle and budget as well as optimizing the space available.

Winning, for three years in a row, the Houzz award 'best for customer satisfaction' from nearly 1,500 Landscape Architects is both a proud moment for us as well confirmation of our ethos.


Gardens are personal areas of space individual and unique to each owner. Our job as garden designers is to help you articulate your vision, translate it and create a plan for your environment that will always look good, be easy to maintain, complement your surroundings, add value to your property and most importantly become a place that you will enjoy all year round.


Each Cowen Garden is a bespoke creation unlimited by the restrictions of style or convention. Irrespective of size, a Cowen Garden will be characterised by a core integrity that combines beauty, value, practicality and an inherent sense of proportion.


Zosia Mellor, a chartered landscape architect, has been a member of the team for some years and supplements the company's garden design offering with expertise in planning, conservation and contract management.


Andrew studied Furniture Design at first and then turned from cutting trees down to planting and growing them. In addition to his first in 3D Design, Andrew has completed an HND in Ecology and Conservation and many design and horticultural courses including the RHS Intermediate Certificate. The company has been designing gardens for over 20 years.
