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 responsibly with careful, considered use of materials and plants.

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

Feature story: The Kitchen Garden at RHS Garden Bridgewater featured in Visionary: Gardens and Landscapes for our Future 

Photographed by legendary photographer Claire Takacs and written by Giacomo Guzzon, this new book features 80 public and private gardens from across the globe that have addressed both sustainability and climate change with outstanding results.  At Bridgewater, our vision was to create a contemporary, inclusive and interactive re-imagining of the principles of Victorian kitchen gardens. We believe food is a radical act that cultivates change and nurtures an understanding of the value of self-sustaining ecosystems as well as building biodiverse landscapes, enhancing soil health and contributing to positive climate actions.
