About us

May & Watts Garden Design, established in 1996, and trading for eighteen years. May & Watts Garden Design is based in Hartfield, East Sussex, but their client base is widespread.

In 2000, they celebrated the millennium by staging a show garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show  for which they achieved a Silver Gilt.

In 2002, they were employed by Loire Valley Wines to create a show garden at Hampton Court, for which they were awarded a Silver, two more gardens followed in 2003, (Silver) and 2004 (Silver-Gilt).  As part of the marketing strategy, a national competition was run; the prize; a garden designed by May & Watts Garden Design. These RHS gardens can be viewed on our website.

In 2006, May & Watts Garden Design were asked to submit a plan for The Teaching Garden adjacent to the new glasshouse at the RHS Wisley Gardens.

In November 2011, Sarah and Edward Rogers asked May & Watts Garden Design to create a contemporary space in the walled garden, completed and launched in June 2013.

In the last few years, May & Watts Garden Design have been concentrating on private commissions, some of which can be seen on our commissions pages.

May & Watts Garden Design specialise in country gardens both modern and traditional, the planting schemes are beautifully realised both visually and horticulturally, and as always clients preference at the forefront of the design process.
