Garden Design

phoca_thumb_l_The garden from the kitchenCowen Landscapes have been designing and maintaining gardens for over 10 years. While achieving the highest possible standards in both garden design and maintenance our clients wishes always come first.

A design that works for you and your family is our first priority.

At the same time our ethos is that the simpler the design the more impact it will have. That puts huge emphasis on the quality of detailing, an example of which can be seen in the garden at Westerham, where the benches were designed to emphasise the circular theme of the concept – as well as being practical and good to look at.

Planting plans require the same amount of thought and consideration but with a simple garden layout the plants will always show up more strongly and speak for themselves.
The individuals in the design team have a Dip A D and CMLI. The Dip A D relates to Furniture Design, (now plants trees having once cut them down), while the CMLI is a recognized landscape qualification. These qualifications are combined with an HND in agriculture and ecology, two RHS qualifications, several College based courses and many years experience.
