Marian Boswall Landscape Architects was established in 2004, designing private & public spaces and specialising in historic gardens.
We are a small team of landscape architects, garden designers and gardeners, working country wide from our design studio in Kent. We combine horticultural, visual design and project management expertise to provide a complete landscape design service, from conception through planning and tender, to construction and planting. We offer full project management of the build and instructions for future maintenance. Once a garden is finished we hand it over to the owners and gardeners, but keep in touch and often return as the garden develops.
The philosophy of the practice is to combine a deep respect for the natural world with a hands on, practical approach to achieving results. We create beautiful landscapes, often working with listed buildings and in sensitive locations. These landscapes reflect the rich history of the people and the place, and we seek to forge a continuum between the past, the present, and the future. Our designs create biodiversity and conserve habitats, and our planting plans are informed by the naturally occurring plant families of the local area. We embrace modern design and clean lines, and mix this with the craftsmanship and respect for the land of an age gone by.
Using natural materials and careful construction detailing, we work hard at listening, in order to project each client and each site’s unique personality into our designs.
