Landscape and garden design in Hampshire, Southampton, Dorset & Poole


The Landscape Service is an established landscape and garden design practice based in the New Forest, Hampshire. We work across the South including Hampshire & Dorset, Poole, Sandbanks, Bournemouth, Southampton, Winchester and The New Forest.

Founded in 2017 by director Luke Mills, the practice consists of 3 landscape designers who design and deliver a variety of landscapes and gardens. Our small team of designers communicate closely with you from the outset to ensure the design brief, needs and requirements are creatively achieved and delivered affordably.

We have experience providing landscape and garden design in Hampshire & Dorset, delivering a full design and build service handling every aspect of the process from initial design proposals to build coordination.. We collaborate with private clients, architects, property developers and interior designers on a range of projects from residential garden design, luxury new builds, housing developments, commercial, and public spaces.

We are recent award winners at the 2023 BBC Gardeners’ World Spring Fair, at Beaulieu in The New Forest, Southampton, receiving the top award of a Platinum Medal and Best Showcase Garden.
