Surrey Garden Design Group is open to anyone with an interest in design, landscapes and beautiful gardens.    Our membership stands at around 80. We’re a friendly bunch with a mix of those interested professionally and personally.

You can see our programme of events HERE, but we arrange a mix of talks and presentations from designers, plantspeople, technical specialists, business experts and artists.  Past speakers have included Charlotte Rowe, Kate Gould, Patricia Fox, Butter Wakefield, Andrew Wilson, Andree Davies and Adam White, Mark Gregory and Matt Keightley.

We also arrange visits as part of our programme to gardens, nurseries and suppliers. For example we have visited London Stone’s bespoke stone centre, a residential garden designed by Marcus Barnett in Sutton and seen behind the scenes at Van Arnhem Nursery in Godalming.

We also have a Professional Development Group set up by Members to provide peer support for those working in the industry, allowing them to share challenges and ideas on good practice.  This has become a lifeline for our many members who work on their own.

Membership of the Group is held at £40 for 2023 and renewals are every January.  As a member you can access:

  • All talks which are for free to members and opened up to visitors if there is space
  • Visits and socials are for members only (there may be additional costs involved)
  • Copies of Groundcover Magazine – covering industry news, write ups of talks, member profiles and updates on events
  • A private ‘Members area’ on our website where we share resources from current speakers meetings, and archive of material from previous speakers.
