Garden design services to renovate, restore and revive historic landscapes.

In the UK, our landscape is steeped in the heritage of historic houses, estates, and monuments, which are integral to our culture and natural environment. As landscape designers, we take great pride in contributing to the preservation and enhancement of these legacies for future generations, ensuring they continue to enrich our environment and collective heritage.

Experts in Historic Garden and Landscape Restoration

We specialise in designing gardens and landscapes for historic houses. 

Our studio understands the intricate process of obtaining planning permissions and navigating restrictions for structural changes, reforming landscape topographies, planting, drawing from our extensive experience in the field.  

We work closely with architects, archaeological and planning consultants who specialise in the renovation, restoration, and rejuvenation of gardens and landscapes for Grade I, and Grade II Listed properties, Ancient Scheduled Monuments and other properties National Parks or Conservation Areas. 

Our designs will sympathetically accommodate any listed features in your garden without compromising its historic character in any way. We welcome the challenge of supporting your historic garden renovation or restoration with professionalism, creativity, and the perfect blend of patience and perseverance.

Ann-Marie Powell and her team are steeped in the traditions of garden design, so understand the concepts and aims behind historic gardens. Their deep knowledge and passion for plants allow each design to express the original vision, and then take it forward.

Equally, Ann-Marie Powell has an imaginative eye for taking old gardens into the 21st century through planting, restructuring with a naturalistic style that ensures every garden become part of the landscape, not imposed on it. From a formal manor house garden to a neglected rock garden or Victorian walled kitchen garden, our team can create spaces for you, your family and your visitors that also enhance the biodiversity and habitats for wildlife.

Our studio prides itself on meticulous attention to detail, responding to your brief wholly, and delivering from conception to completion a well communicated, considered scheme which is highly individual and unique to your historic and/or nationally important space.
