Cat Datta Garden Design

Freelance Garden Designer


I am based in London but am also happy to work on garden designs further afield. My past projects, over the past 10+ years, consist of complete re-designs to carefully considered enhancements of existing outdoor areas. 
My aim is to help you use more of your available garden space; which is paramount to my work ethos. I like to promote the use of vertical spaces for increasing the biodiversity within your garden by planting living walls, which is a big love of mine, and installing green roofs on existing and newly built structures. Lighting, plants and outdoor furniture suggestions are also a key feature of my designs.

Cat provided a much needed face-lift for our tired garden. She transformed a building project dumping ground into a beautiful space which works really well with our kitchen. Cat is very easy to work with as she's friendly, calm and patient. She had lots of ideas and we love the end result.

Cat helped us to transform our small garden from a building site into a space with multiple uses. We have a great space for the children to kick a ball around but Cat also managed to incorporate a seating and eating area too. Cat was especially good with extra touches to make the garden more aesthetically pleasing e.g. the use of decorative Corten screens and a shed with a living green roof.

Cat had fantastic contacts and suggestions whilst still keeping within the given budget. A few years on and we are still very pleased with the garden design.

Cat Datta completed transformed our outdoor space and every morning when I look out into the garden, I am absolutely thrilled with what I see - a green, colourful and low maintenance garden that is a pleasure to sit in and for the kids to use. Cat really listened and understood our brief and priorities and she came up with a fantastic design which met our needs. Cat’s planting palette was very well thought out and has given us a unique and gorgeous garden that we love.

This is the second time that we are using Cat because she always provides the 'Wow' factor. First time round it was the Gaudi-esque playhouse for our young daughter. Now our daughter is a teenager we needed to totally re-design the space and Cat has done it again! We have a bespoke designed laser cut screen pergola area which was recently nominated for an industry landscape award and we are totally thrilled with the whole garden design. The floating stepping stones in the water feature leads you to the new grown up seating area with a stylish gas fire pit. The free standing globe lights change colour and add a magical atmosphere to this jungle themed planted garden.
