What we do, and who does it?
We design, create and take care of beautiful outside spaces! This includes complete garden design and build, pond and swimming pool design and construction, bespoke garden buildings, excellent aftercare and maintenance services, full estate management and ongoing improvement.
Our team consists of creative individuals with diverse skillsets, dedicated to our excellent tailored service. We have a small, tightknit in-house team with the core skills required to achieve excellence in our field. We have worked hard over the years on establishing great relationships and work collaboratively with both designers and craftspeople who are all at the top of their game.
This enables us to concentrate on what we are really great at and rely on specialists in several areas to ensure that we create absolutely stunning outside spaces to the highest quality possible. We put a tailored team together for each of our projects and draft in experts from our trusted network, providing a complete and managed service from design, through construction and onto aftercare.
You can meet our core team below and learn what each of us specialise in. Find out more about our collaborative network on our ‘collaborations’ page.

Louis Champain started Champain Landscapes in 2013 in response to a growing need for designed gardens in and around Suffolk.
