Oliver Rutman Garden Design

Creating Exceptional Gardens

Who we are

We are a multi award winning landscape and garden design studio. The studio was founded by Oliver Rutman. He started his career at the world famous garden Great Dixter in East Sussex. He went on to study garden design at Royal Botanical Gardens Kew.

In 2019 Oliver was awarded the Pro Landscaper 30 under 30 identifying him as a rising star in the industry and one to watch. Oliver was also selected as one of the RHS Young Designer finalists 2020.

We design for residential, commercial and public clients across the UK from our studios in Sussex and Gloucestershire. Lots of our clients like the fact we offer a very personal design service that produces a garden that is unique to you.

Clients have included: NHS, Macmillan Cancer Support and the RHS. Current projects include: Roof terrace for the staff at the Royal Free Hospital (London), Large country gardens and Small urban gardens.

This year we were proud to be included as one of the best 25 garden designers / landscape architects in the Kent Metro area by Houzz.co.uk


If you are thinking of employing a garden designer or are curious about how much gardens cost? We regally update our blog page with useful information about gardens, design, press articles and exiting public projects we are working on.
