Andy Sturgeon Design Award Winning
Garden Design in the Cotswolds

Imaginative & Inspired

Andy Sturgeon offers a unique garden design service to clients throughout the UK and worldwide. His projects are renowned for their imagination and bold architecural style.

“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

Internationally Acclaimed

Founded on a passion for design excellence and meticulous attention to detail, our work ranges from the classical to the contemporary.

Underlying all our work is the belief that gardens and landscapes improve not just the environment
but the quality of life for all who experience them on whatever level.

The Cotswolds

This iconic English landscape and designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty presents some interesting challenges and opportunities. Andy is highly experienced in navigating the sometimes complex planning process, often working alongside architects on the restoration of historic buildings, country houses and larger estates.

How we work

We pride ourselves on working closely with our clients to produce unique schemes, bringing a fresh and individual approach to each and every project, with Andy being personally involved in the project from the initial brief to completion. Andy takes great care to bring your vision to reality and create an ecologically rich and truly bespoke garden.

From commercial projects to large private gardens our multi-disciplinary team of highly skilled Landscape Architects, Urban Designers, accomplished Horticulturalists and Garden Designers allows us to work across a range of scales and locations.

Our garden design process

While every garden and landscape is unique and each project has a life of its own, they tend to follow similar journeys. No matter the size or scale of the project, our practice handles each individual project with the same meticulous attention to detail with Andy involved at every stage.

Brief

Firstly, Andy will spend some time getting to know what your aims and needs are for your outdoor space. From here, he will develop a written brief and provide you with a full breakdown and explanation of the design process, how it will work and the costs. Many of our projects are associated with new builds or extensive refurbishments and we are always happy to work within a wider team and process.

Survey

The survey process includes professionally surveying level changes, trees, buildings, utilities and services to safely form the basis of the design. Andy will also return to the site to take a full photographic survey and analysis to further complement and confirm the initial design concept. The cost of this survey is charged separately but the design team will be more than happy to arrange this on your behalf.

Design concept

Once the survey is completed, Andy will present you with a fixed fee for an initial proposal. This involves a fully comprehensive A3 book with hand-drawn illustrations of your design, 3D visuals and CGIs, precedent photos and a concept plan that will describe, in detail, how your finished garden will look. These plans are by no means set in stone, you may think of this as a discussion document, where any changes you require can be discussed and developed with Andy and the team.

We are also able to offer a QS service at this stage to provide reasonably accurate costings which can inform the following stages of the project.

Detailed design

Andy will then produce a detailed final design that will take into account any changes that arise through discussions during the design concept stage. This is a truly bespoke and meticulous final design, everything from the gate hinges to lighting schemes, water features and irrigation will be accounted for. This service and attention to detail is seldom seen elsewhere and we are extremely proud of the quality of information contained in these documents. Importantly this high level of detail will often save money later on by allowing the project to be accurately tendered and priced.

Planting

The planting process is typically allied to the detailed design stage. However, for clients who wish to remain closely involved in the planting design, Andy will work with you to ensure your demands and bespoke requirements are met. Alternatively, if you are happy for the team to have full rein over the planting process we are more than happy to do so.

Tendering

The scheme will then be passed onto two or three landscape contractors trusted by Andy. They will be given a full tender package with drawings, specifications and bills of quantities required for pricing and construction. Site visit will then be arranged on a preferred date and time. They will then provide an itemised quote which Andy will personally analyse and from this, produce a tender report highlighting and addressing any concerns or merits of each.
