Darren Hawkes Landscapes is a multi award winning design studio working on domestic gardens, public realm spaces and commercial landscapes throughout the UK. We are a small team dedicated to creating spaces that have sensitivity to their history, architecture and place.

The studio has an agile approach to each project looking to discover the individual narrative attached to the brief. This drives us to recognise and create unique, inspiring spaces.

Darren has over 20 years experience working in the landscaping industry. He has won a number of gold medals at RHS Chelsea Flower Show and continues to be involved with the show as an RHS judge.
