Nicholas Dexter Studio design modern + natural landscapes that reconnect people to wild space. We love trees, grasses, perennials, meadows and use water wherever possible.

The Brighton based studio works on projects of all scales over the UK providing landscape design for one-off houses to residential commercial developments.

Our approach to design remains constant irrespective of scale. Generally we look to nature for inspiration and by observing wild spaces our designs feel organic and connected to the surrounding landscape. Underlying the landscape design is a simple and beautifully crafted hardscape plan. We are passionate about technical drafting to provide concise drawings to illustrate the concept.
