Oliver Burgess

London and the South East

Gardens are an extension of our living areas and I aim to bring each client’s unique aesthetic to their outdoor space. Planting is integral to the success of any design and I will advise on evocative and sympathetic schemes to improve and transform your garden and make it a place that will bring pleasure throughout the seasons. I look to bring a sustainable, ecologically minded approach to garden design that adapts to the environment and encourages both health and wellbeing as well as year round enjoyment.


I have always loved nature and graduated from Birmingham University with a degree in Biological Sciences. The laboratory was never going to be the place I ended up, however, and I subsequently spent 15 years working in the property industry. This provided me with a deep understanding of what people and families want from their living spaces and home environment. The modern garden is a place for peace and relaxation, a bridge to the great outdoors, and an entertainment space in which to enjoy time with friends and relatives. It also afforded me excellent insight into how the garden can add value to your property.

I trained at the London College of Garden Design in Kew Gardens and graduated in 2020 with a distinction. Now based in Beckenham and working all across London and the south east, I have built relationships with many fantastic clients – creating gardens that both bring individuality and excitement to their homes as well as extending their living space. This includes working with architects and property developers to add that final crucial element in creating a unique and special home.
