About us

From an early age, Alasdair Cameron was passionate about gardens. As a child he would always be found foraging in a border or rifling around in the roses. Today this passion remains undiluted. His greatest talent lies in grasping his clients' vision for their garden and translating it into a creative space that works for the client, their home and the surrounding vista.

Initially Alasdair trained in architectural and interior design, followed by a landscape and garden design course at Merrist Wood College. He then spent a year as the protégé of renowned designer Helen Dorrien-Smith of the world-famous Tresco Abbey, on the Isles of Scilly. This invaluable experience enabled Alasdair to absorb her extraordinary plant knowledge and benefit from her exacting standards in garden design. Both of which remain key components in Alasdair’s work today.

In 1992, Alasdair started his London-based practice, Cameron Landscapes and Gardens, which, over the years, has built up an impressive portfolio including private London estates, boutique hotels and European royalty.

A move to Devon in 2005 saw the inception of Alasdair Cameron Design, which concentrates on country gardens, landscapes and parklands. Both businesses are closely linked and complement each other well. By straddling both town and country practices, Alasdair is able to keep his finger on the pulse of modern trends which enables him to mix traditional landscape design methods with a cosmopolitan twist if so desired. 

At the heart of Alasdair’s work is his desire to make his clients' ideas come alive. With his expertise, he aims to create an inspiring partnership as he guides the client through the complexities of landscape design to ensure an end-product which provides incredible enjoyment.
