Cat Datta Garden Design

Freelance Garden Designer


I am based in London and I have been designing gardens for over 10 years now - and not just in London. 

My primary aim is to maximise the potential of your outdoor space whatever its size. I will look at relaxation/entertainment/kid playing zones as well as talk you through the benefits of lighting, irrigation and screening possibilities and, where applicable, I will suggest green roof and vertical garden options.

I will personally create your garden design with 3D images. I will source landscape building teams for your garden build and project manage the build when it happens. Last, but not least, I love to plant so this element of your garden design will be happily in my hands.

Your garden is what we make it - together.

I am also happy to accessorise your existing garden with outdoor furniture, weatherproof cushions, rugs, artwork, sculptures, fire-bowls and so on.

“We were delighted with Catherine’s garden design, she took the time to listen to what we wanted and came up with the perfect solution for us. The special touch was the idea of lighted cubes for seats, which looks amazing and is a real focus point once it gets dark. The design is practical but looks lovely and was quickly and efficiently executed. I couldn’t have asked for a better job!”




“When we first moved into our new house, the garden had been unloved and was hemmed in by high fences. Catherine helped to completely refresh the garden introducing a modern glass bench and by lowering the back fence created something that is rare in London: a garden with a view, and was an effect we nicknamed “The Infinity Garden”. Now when guests come to the house, the garden has a “wow” factor and we have Catherine to thank for that.”



“Catherine always came to the house smiling and full of ideas on how to change the garden into a more functional space. We had our first child on the way, so wanted space for future ball kicking but also where the adults could enjoy an alfresco supper. Her design made the garden feel better, and having a water feature around the seating area gave it something special especially when it was lit up at night time. She listened to our ideas and incorporated them into her design. We would highly recommend her!”
