Expert garden designers…on your doorstep


We’ve been growing our Cambridge garden design services in Cambridges hire and East Anglia for more than a decade – and through word of mouth have become known as one of the region’s ‘best kept secrets’. From the simple to the spectacular, the characterful to the contemporary, our garden designers have created unique landscapes for some of the most prestigious homes in the county.

Unrivalled plant knowledge

As horticultural experts and plants men we know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to gardening in Cambridge. From consultation and design through to build and maintenance, we’ll help you visualize what you want from your garden, and how to achieve it. We’ll grow the idea and bring it to life.


Our mission is to create extra-ordinary gardens


Abbotswood Garden Design provides exceptional garden design services in Cambridge, Saffron Walden, Huntingdon, Newmarket and all surrounding areas.

We’ve been designing and maintaining gardens for some of Cambridgeshire’s most spectacular homes and prestigious buildings for over 10 years. 

Relying purely on word of mouth from day one—some people call us “Cambridge’s best kept secret.”

Whatever your aspirations—from the contemporary to the traditional—we design picture-perfect gardens that’ll take your breath away.

Rob has a sympathetic eye and expert design sense. Highly recommended.
