Kevin Bownes


I graduated from the London College of Garden Design, Kew Gardens in July 2017.



A lifelong passion for plants, gardening and nature stems from my childhood days, where I spent many an hour helping my Father on his two allotments. Everything was carefully sown from seed, and propagated outdoors or under glass in the greenhouse. My memories are filled with long afternoons
spent collecting vegetables and beautiful flowers from the cutting garden.

After a Telecommunications career spanning 20 years, firstly with the Army and subsequently for a global IT company, I returned to my horticultural roots and studied at Capel Manor College, enabling me to start a garden maintenance business.

During the time spent working with clients, improving gardens and advising on planting, I went on to fully pursue my passion for gardening, undertaking a diploma at The London College of Garden Design, Kew Gardens, and graduating in July 2017.

I now enjoy working on a variety of residential and commercial projects, combining beautiful aesthetics with functional gardens that clients can really use and enjoy. My approach mixes formality and structural planting with a more naturalistic style.
