About us
Our Approach

Nicholas Dexter (Founder / MSGD) has designed gardens for the past 20 years. His focus has always been to create simple, uncomplicated spaces that connect people to nature. He studied geology at the University of Manchester which developed his passion for wild, rugged landscapes and the calm that they bring. Studying landform provided the perfect foundation for his career in designing gardens. In 2005, he became a Registered Member of the Society of Garden Designers, which is the professional body of the industry.

Between 2006-2013 he designed gardens at Hampton Court and Chelsea Flower Show which provided a platform to experiment and create more conceptual outdoor spaces.

More recently he has been working with local community groups to improve parks and pockets and corridors of green space within the city.

Nicholas Dexter regularly lectures at Plumpton College and the KLC School of Design and sits on the Mid Sussex Design Review Panel, where he provides feedback on planning applications from a landscape perspective.


Established in 2000, the business has grown over the years into a productive design studio. We are a small team of professional and committed designers who have gained a wealth of experience over the years. We are proud to work with great architects, landscapers and other professionals to ensure that each project is designed and detailed from all aspects considered.

We aim to produce plans that look beautiful and are thoughtfully laid out.
