The Landscape Service are a small design practice based in The New Forest covering the South.

Founding director Luke Mills works in collaboration with RHS award winning designer James Smith. With a combined 20 years of experience they undertake a diverse mix of projects from residential garden design to commercial developments.

With no house-style, our creative output is dictated by the clients brief, needs and requirements for the space. Working with our clients and related professionals we design, manage and plant a variety of landscapes & gardens.

We believe every new space should connect the site, surrounding landscape and architecture together as one, enhancing the local environment and rejuvenating each setting’s individual character. We aim to create a unique landscape on every scheme with a fresh concept, treating each project as an opportunity to deliver a brand-new sustainable landscape.
