As We Near Our Christmas Break…

Ann-Marie, Mary, Gemma, and Penny would like to wish you, your families, friends, and loved ones a very happy holiday and all best wishes for 2024. We also hope for your health and happiness in the New Year to come.

As is our tradition, instead of sending cards we will be making a donation to Greenfingers Charity who fundraise to build gardens for children’s hospices throughout the UK.

We also wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your support throughout 2023, it has been a wonderful year for us as a practice and we look forward to an even better 2024.

Our studio will close at 5pm on Thursday 21st December 2023 and reopen on Tuesday 2nd January 2024.

We look forward to creating more beautiful outdoor spaces with you upon our return, and to seeing what 2024 has in store for AMPG.

Summer planting in contemporary garden design

Nature Amplified

This year has brimmed with plants, connecting our clients with nature’s wonders. From breaking ground on new projects, enjoying completed gardens, to studio apple tastings and studio plant idents we have had a great year, doing what we love, here’s hoping next year is the same!

In the Press

We’re thrilled to have been featured in many esteemed publications this year: The Guardian, House and Garden, The Garden Design Journal,  and Gardens Illustrated just to name a few! Being acknowledged by our peers is truly uplifting, and we’re excited to share our project news through various channels with as many people as possible.

It was another excellent year for AMPG’s Principal, Ann-Marie Powell. While she was working hard in the studio, Ann-Marie was named one of Gardens Illustrated most inspiring female garden designers in British history, as well as one of House and Garden’s Top 50 Garden Designers for 2023. We are all so proud for Ann-Marie to be recognised so widely within our industry.
