Jo Thompson Landscape & Garden Design

Creative Studios in London & East Sussex

Jo Thompson has an international reputation for creating beautifully crafted and sustainable landscapes that stand the test of time, with a commitment to biodiversity, exquisite and intelligent planting and an accomplished understanding of space. 

Planting is soft, relaxed in manner and painterly in style. Houses are allowed to settle into their space whilst nature settles in all around. From wildflower meadows to herbaceous borders planted with roses and perennials, to coastal garden grasses and wind-resistant rooftop trees, the picture changes with the seasons.

Invited to restore, advise on and gently intervene into landscapes and gardens originally designed by, amongst others, Humphry Repton, Vita Sackville-West, Percy Cane and Nathaniel Lloyd, there is always a consideration of who and what has gone before, and who and what is yet to come in.

Working across the UK and internationally from Italy to New York, projects range from wildflower meadows and herbaceous borders planted with roses and perennials, to coastal gardens and rooftop terraces, the picture changes with the seasons.
