About DK Garden Design VIEW PROCESS

Ever since appearing in the 10-episode BBC Two programme Garden School back in 2005, I have been designing many award-winning gardens and landscapes across the UK and Europe.

In the past 20-plus years, my work has achieved regional, national, and international recognition from landscape design awards, including International Landscape Design Award (2018 winner), APLD USA (2018 & 2012 winner) and Northern Design Awards (winner of Best Garden Designer 2016, 2013, 2011, and 2010).

In addition to attending award shows, I have been a regular on horticultural trade panel discussions as well as featuring in and writing for numerous magazines and books on garden and landscape design across the world.

Currently working on garden & landscape design projects for clients in – but not limited to – Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, and Derbyshire. DK Garden Design’s philosophy is very much focused on plants and planting, hence my motto: It’s all about the plants.

Hear It From Our Clients


My new garden is exactly what I needed and this is a result of David's skills to listen to the client and transform this into a unique design. He was very clear about the design process, he is an excellent communicator and remained very involved throughout the whole project.

David is not only part of our long term and ongoing project for the garden but a friend who shares with us the joy of the garden as it has developed. We cannot thank David enough for turning a useless space into a garden we are so proud of and enjoy on a daily basis.
