We are a friendly, professional design practice based in Wiltshire. Our services are available throughout Wiltshire and the rest of the UK. AH Design Studio was founded by Aubrey Hoadley, who has over 15 years’ experience in designing and building gardens and landscapes.
Aubrey started his working life as a self-employed garden designer that also built the designs he created for his clients. After three years Aubrey strived for further knowledge and experience so joined an International landscape architecture and golf course architecture design practice. Aubrey widened his design and build knowledge through learning the skills required to practice as a golf course architect. Along with Aubrey's landscape architecture skills and new golf course architecture knowledge he has been able to travel to many different countries to work on projects and manage the design and build process.
Aubrey is delighted in returning to designing under his own name and provide the wealth of experience he has gained to every project he works on. He strives to create gardens and landscapes that are always suitable for his client's requirements. His background in a professional consultancy and client service gives him a valuable understanding of the importance of working closely with clients from inception through to project completion. This, combined with his previous business experience, has helped him develop a professional and friendly approach in the garden and landscape industry.
Aubrey is a proud family man and enjoys nothing more than pottering around in his own garden with his three children trying to pass on his knowledge to whichever one listens!
I enjoy the fresh challenge and excitement that comes with each new project. I like to spend time considering how each person might use the space so that they can maximise the enjoyment that it can bring. Spending that time to visualise how others will enjoy the space is vital for me to make a project successful.
I seem to naturally employ a contemporary and simple design style whilst trying to ensure that a journey is always created through a space with many vistas rather than just one view. Gardens and landscapes should have hidden moments within them making them interesting every time you explore them. I love to bring nature in through planting and use that softness to compliment the necessary hard materials that make a space functional.
Gardens and the landscape should not only look beautiful but also offer a function.
