Landscape & Garden Design Studio

Darren designs large and small scale gardens throughout the South West and London, regardless of size, attention to craftsmanship and detail always remain his main priority.

Darren Hawkes is an award winning garden designer based in Cornwall taking inspiration from the landscape that surrounds him.  His designs have a balanced and harmonious feel, with a strong emphasis on the blending of surfaces and materials and a loose feel to planting.”I love the relationship between plants and hard materials, the drama of contrast and the opportunity to highlight shapes both in foliage and form as well as in colour is one that I relish”.  Having worked in the industry for many years, he has a full knowledge of each stage of the process in creating a new garden.
