The studio

Colm Joseph Gardens is an energetic and growing landscape design studio based near Cambridge. We offer high quality design services from project conception to completion, creating outside spaces that enhance the lives of our clients.

We are a collaborative design studio led by Colm Joseph, who combines a passion for plants with a strong eye for spatial composition, structure and materials. The sensitivity he brings to each project is key to exploring and revealing the inherent qualities and potential of a place.

Colm Joseph trained at the acclaimed London College of Garden Design based at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, graduating as 'top student' with the highest overall mark ever awarded by the college.

Colm exhibited his first show garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2019 sponsored by horticultural charity Perennial, which was awarded a Silver Gilt medal.

Our work

Our landscape design work includes a range of gardens that vary in size, style and setting from small courtyard gardens to large rural landscapes. The common thread across all our work is the bespoke and responsive approach taken to the special characteristics and possibilities of each site and the particular needs and lifestyle of each client.

Our work is imaginative, bold and considered. It is modern landscape design rooted in a sensitivity to place. Our design vision is realised through rigorous project management, attention to detail and unwavering commitment to quality.

Latest news - December 2020.
Suffolk garden, first winter

One of our Suffolk gardens, planted earlier in 2020, is already demonstrating the value of planting design with winter structure and texture in mind.

Our design for this rural garden was light touch, with the introduction of generous planting, multi-stem trees (Amelanchier lamarckii), alongside a new dining terrace and paths in simple clay pavers.

Careful selection of perennials and ornamental grasses that offer winter seedheads and foliage, in a variety of forms and textures, really helps to extend seasonal interest in the garden.
