Colm Joseph Gardens is an award-winning landscape design studio providing high-quality and imaginative garden design in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and beyond. We create beautiful gardens that work for the needs and lifestyles of each client.

We work with clients from design conception through to project completion; we create a vision for the garden then work with rigour and commitment to realise that vision. We work collaboratively to deliver the highest quality landscapes for our clients, engaging a network of highly skilled and talented landscape contractors, world-leading growers and built material suppliers, among other landscape professionals.

Landscape design approach

We are passionate about modern landscape design that is bold, imaginative and considered, while simultaneously sensitive to its surroundings and in keeping with the sense of place.

Every site, place and person we work with is unique and our approach is responsive to this, creating a tailored, bespoke design for every project. As well as creating beautiful and atmospheric gardens, we carefully consider the practical needs and lifestyles of our clients.

Our landscape design approach also prioritises sustainability. Our designs use high quality, sustainable hard and soft materials that last over time. Our planting design approach is driven by sensitivity and suitability to site, combining an emphasis on aesthetics with ecological improvement. We design gardens that celebrate seasonal change and the inherent qualities of the local landscape.

We offer modern garden design in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, and London. However, we consider interesting projects anywhere in the world.
