About Secret Gardens

About Secret Gardens

We believe in the balance between the built elements and the softer elements of the garden. The two working sympathetically with the architecture and layout of your home, all forms combining perfectly for a harmonious outcome.  We believe that a house is just a house until absorbed into a garden and only then can you call it a home.

Secret Gardens was established in 1994 by Managing Director, Matthew Cantwell. Landscape architecture, landscape construction and horticultural services for the residential sector have always been our focus.

Our talented team consists of 50+ staff and includes landscape architects and designers, structural landscaping specialists, carpenters and stonemasons and horticulturists; as well as a dedicated administration team.  All of our staff are selected carefully; qualifications, experience and a teamwork attitude are a must. A passion for gardens, a commitment to customer service and respect for our clients and their homes is at the core of our brand values.

With our extensive team, Secret Gardens offers clients a complete landscaping service. We can take your garden and all it can include, from concept to completion; no matter the scale or degree of complexity. All of our services perform at the top of their fields and have been duly awarded by their respective professional associations.

Our extensive portfolio of garden designs demonstrates an ability to work with and enhance a variety of architectural styles whilst creating a unique garden design for each client.
