Garden design by Ann-Marie Powell
At Ann-Marie Powell Gardens, we don't just design gardens, we design external spaces and outdoor rooms that are both great to look at and wonderful to live in.
Your garden, your way
We design gardens and outside spaces that work for you, your family, and your lifestyle. Every garden project we do is unique, a personal design solution tailor-made to suit my client's needs. Our garden design practice prides itself on a friendly approach, guiding you through every stage of your project to understand your requirements and expectation, and then to exceed them!
Experienced, expert, professional garden designers
Our design team are seasoned professionals with a whole variety of gardens designed for very happy clients, from the most intimate London back garden to impressive (and award-winning) show gardens. Our commercial and residential garden design projects range from roof gardens, courtyard gardens, and school playgrounds through to large country gardens, country estates and landscapes, modern rural retreats and child/dog/parent friendly family gardens. Every project is created from brief to final realisation with enthusiasm, understanding and professionalism.
The Ann-Marie Powell Gardens style
Our gardens are contemporary with a naturalistic style, and often include enhancements such as lighting, water, sculpture and furnishings. We use natural and found materials to create striking yet practical features, and try to make every gardens as sustainable and low carbon footprint as possible.

Awkward space? Sloping site? Listed building? Challenge us!
We love a challenge at Ann-Marie Powell Gardens, and over the years we've developed a reputation of taking even the most bijou of spaces and creating something special. Equally, our interest and knowledge of how to use hard landscape and soft landscaping techniques has helped us to transform difficult terrain into terrific gardens. We've also guided clients through the maze of paperwork and permissions required for gardens on scheduled monuments and as part of Grade I and Grade II listed properties, and helped restore historic gardens back to their former glory.
Roof gardens and commercial outdoor rooms
And it's not just about earthworks and groundwork - several of our garden designs are many feet above terra firma! We have created roof terraces and roof gardens, as well as relaxing spaces in the most unusual corners of commercial buildings.
Eat your garden
We are increasingly being asked to design edible gardens, where the planting scheme provides items for the table all year round, avoiding the spring 'hunger gap'. We adore designing these gardens, integrating vegetables and edible flowers with perennial and herbaceous plants in a riot of colour, texture and flavour rather than having a separate vegetable garden, kitchen garden or herb garden.
Transparent fees, total service
We are completely transparent in our pricing and design fees are agreed in advance. Once a design brief has been agreed and design commissioned, we produce sketches before final designs, hard landscaping specifications and plant schedules are drawn up, all to a mutually convenient timescale.
When drawings and specifications are complete, if required we recommend the very best hard landscape sub-contractors to guarantee a quality finish to your garden build. A site inspection service is offered if you would like us to monitor your garden’s construction.
And last, but certainly not least, be it architectural, native, prairie, Mediterranean or jungle, planting features heavily in our designs. We can arrange plant supply, planting and aftercare visits if you require.
