We create modern + natural gardens which connects the architecture, environment and people who inhabit our landscapes. The design element is often simple which provide the subtle and underlying structure to planting 'inspired by wilderness'.
The show gardens have been experiments in capturing the mood of a habitat and allowing escapism from daily life; recreating the memory of that woodland bike ride, the coastal cliff-top walk or paddling in a shallow stream.
Our Brighton based studio works in close collaboration with architects and other consultants to provide:
- Landscape design and specification
- Landscape planning
- Architectural and landscape visualisation
- Planting design and specification
- Tendering and monitoring
- Arboricultural surveys
- Landscape Visual Impact Assessments
Nick originally studied Geology at the University of Manchester which developed his passion for wild and rugged landscapes. Once graduated, the choice was either to continue a career in Geology or discover something new which was a huge decision at the time.
After cycling around France during the 1998 World Cup year Nick established a garden maintenance service and enrolled at Plumpton College to study landscape design. The course gave Nick the confidence to take on private commissions, which gradually evolved into larger and more challenging opportunities.
By 2005, Nick registered with the Society of Garden Designers and exhibited at Hampton Court Flower Show. Following this success Nick went on to design a garden at RHS Wisley and three times at the Chelsea Flower Show between 2009 to 2013.
Nicholas Dexter Studio is now an award landscape design practice working on projects of all scales from one-off houses to major new housing developments both in private sector and pubic realm.
