Based in Cornwall, Sam Ovens Landscapes is an award winning landscape design studio, offering a comprehensive and innovative design service throughout the UK and abroad. Focusing on contemporary and environmentally sustainable design, Sam Ovens Landscapes specialises in the creation of outdoor spaces that are memorable and inspirational. Works include stimulating and refreshingly modern gardens in private and commercial settings. This ranges from small London courtyard retreats to large coastal gardens and country estates.
Having grown up on a working farm in Cornwall, Sam has always had a love of nature and the outdoors. Combining this interest with a passion for design led him to study the BA Garden Design at Falmouth University.
Since graduating in 2012 Sam was named the RHS Young Designer of the Year in 2014 and has gone on to win multiple RHS Gold Medals. His most recent achievements include a Silver-Gilt Medal at RHS Chelsea Flower Show for his main avenue show garden ‘The Cloudy Bay Garden, 2016’ and in 2017, Sam won Gold for His Wedgwood Garden at the inaugural RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.
Sam’s passion is for clean, contemporary and environmentally sustainable design.
Sam arrived at landscape design following two years studying product design, moving away from the latter because he wanted to design something meaningful and lasting, something that would improve and develop over time.
He comments, “The environment is my main source of inspiration, both the natural and the man-made. I am constantly finding new ideas and inspiration in the most ordinary of places. I am driven by a desire to create spaces which reconnects clients with their gardens and outdoor spaces.”
