Elks-Smith Garden Design in Dorset, Hampshire, Southampton, Bournemouth – Home 2018-05-16T15:40:43+00:00

Great garden design requires creativity, attention to detail and craftsmanship.

 We are inspired by the landscape around us and are constantly innovating and refining our design service to ensure we create timeless landscapes and gardens that will suit both period and contemporary properties and locations.

Over the years we have won many awards including RHS Chelsea Flower Show and BALI Design Excellence.

Our work regularly features in national newspapers, magazines and garden design books.

We use our knowledge of how we respond to space and landscape to underpin our design work.

We work across London, the Home Counties and along the South Coast stretching from Kent, Sussex, Hampshire to Dorset from our practice just outside Southampton.
