how we work
Each project Andy undertakes is bespoke to your vision, with Andy being personally involved in the project from the initial brief to the project’s completion. You will work closely alongside Andy to help bring your vision to reality and create an ecologically rich and truly bespoke garden for your Hampshire property.
We specialise in both large-scale commercial projects as well as private garden designs in Hampshire. Whether you’re a business looking to transform and adapt your outdoor space to suit your clientele or your garden has seen better days and requires a modern or traditional redesign, we have the experience and skillset to bring your vision to life.
Our garden design process
“I’ve worked on gardens all around the world, from tiny roof terraces to large rambling estates. I adore the space and freedom of designing large rural country gardens just as I relish the challenge and excitement of designing for the urban environment.” – Andy
Andy is always looking for new ways to reduce his garden design’s environmental impact. We take an ecological and sustainable approach when it comes to designing gardens and landscapes, such as incorporating rainwater and greywater recycling in water features alongside sustainable drainage systems, implementing green walls and roofs where possible and achieving maximum biodiversity within planting plans, to name a few.
We also use:
- Low carbon lighting in both private and commercial garden designs in Hampshire
- Drought tolerant planting
- Reduction of run off into drains and sewers
- Waste minimisation measures
- Urban greening & soft landscaping solutions for urban areas
- Ethical sourcing of hard landscape materials and strict observation of FSC and other codes
Andy founded Andy Sturgeon Design in 1988 and has since become one of the most revered and recognised garden designers in the world. Andy has brought home many awards, including eight RHS Gold medals at Chelsea Flower Show, as well as winning the coveted “Best in Show“ three times, most recently in 2019.
Both The Sunday Times and House & Garden magazine place Andy in the Top Ten list of landscape designers in Britain, with recent accolades including Gold Awards from Singapore, Korea and Philadelphia and top awards from the UK’s Society of Garden Designers in 2020.
Some of Andy’s biggest projects include:
- Great Ormand Street Hospital
- Battersea Power Station
- Paris Gardens (Southwark)
- Earl’s Court
Andy’s work is frequently featured on television and in books, magazines and newspapers worldwide. You may have also noticed Andy presenting the Chelsea Flower Show on the BBC for over 15 years, as well as featuring on several major gardening shows.
