Luke Arend

Newcastle upon Tyne and the North East

I graduated from the London College with a distinction in 2019, and am very excited to establish my garden design practice In Newcastle upon Tyne to cover the North East of England. I am very proud to announce that I have been selected as a finalist in both student categories for the 2020 Society of Garden Design annual awards: domestic and commercial. You can view these finalised projects below under ’Getting out’ and ’Chilterns family garden’.

My love of nature and gardens began as a child. I grew up in a small village in beautiful rural Essex surrounded by rolling countryside, with my dear mum’s infectious passion for gardening and plants, and my Dad’s eye for art, design and nature. My gardens aspire to delight, surprise and bring joy to those that use them, whilst embracing the craft on creating a personalised, beautiful and well functioning space. I pride myself on providing a friendly and highly professional service with plenty of enthusiasm and dedication. I know that great design is timeless, great service is precious, and great collaboration between client and designer so so important.

Please do get in touch, as I see every space as an opportunity to create beautiful spaces that work for you, from small back yards, suburban gardens, commercial spaces or master planning large landscapes.
