Karen McClure Garden Design

Karen McClure is an award-winning garden designer building a flourishing practice based in Kent. 

Since graduating from The Museum of Garden History and Hadlow College, Karen founded her successful, fast-growing garden design practice in Tunbridge Wells. Karen’s clients tend to be residential with projects ranging from small town gardens and roof terraces, to extensive country gardens. We provide an organised plan of the garden for our clients, supported with consistent communications that are paramount in any size project and a high priority for us.

Karen enjoys the challenges that the variety of each project brings, no matter how small or large.  Her love of architectural, exotic, and striking jungle planting themes are fast becoming a signature of her work.  Her growing team ensures that she can accommodate a variety of projects and styles around the Kent and East Sussex area.

Karen is a passionate advocate of the industry and supports students or less experienced team members to understand the workings of the business, as well as more technical areas such as design and planting. Karen also has highly valued and long-standing relationships with other designers, landscapers, and suppliers to ensure that she is able to share best practice and efficiently access quality products & services. This allows her to work collaboratively with her clients and industry network to ensure that the garden design is interpreted and delivered correctly.

Karen’s relaxed, warm nature and huge passion for her work makes her an easy designer to work with and she attributes the importance of balancing family life (including that of her team’s families) as integral to her work ethos and success.
