Welcome to Harris Bugg Studio

We are a values-driven, award-winning landscape design practice with projects encompassing residential, public, historic, botanic, and commercial spaces, which are often located in protected or sensitive settings.

Formed in 2017, we have demonstrated our ability to win and deliver work at the highest level, and have been called “pioneering design talents of their generation” by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Our practice is recognised for working carefully to embrace and respect the singular spirit of place. Our aim is to connect people and nature, fulfilling a profound and innate need in all of us, and to do so responsibility with careful, considered use of materials and plants.

With studios in London and Exeter, we are currently working on projects located across the UK and Europe, providing a seamless service from design to completion.

Feature project: The Kitchen Garden at RHS Bridgewater

We’ve made a short film about our inspiration for the Kitchen Garden we created at RHS Garden Bridgewater. Our design was inspired by the site’s rich layers of history, including the original routes of the Bridgewater Canal and old Victorian field maps.

Latest News: Charlotte & Hugo win Gold medal

Charlotte and Hugo’s M&G Garden has won a coveted Gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2021.

While the two designers have both won individual gold medals for Main Avenue gardens at Chelsea before, this is their first Chelsea Gold medal together.

The M&G Garden stands for the importance of beautiful and restorative green spaces in the places we need them the most – our towns and cities. The garden is imagined as a pocket park – a public space for people and wildlife to share and enjoy all the benefits of being in nature. Unusually for Chelsea, it is a shared public garden, imagined in an urban setting – challenging our usual notions of what a garden can be.
