Tom Murphy

Landscape and Garden Designer

Tom has been working as a Landscape Garden Designer since 2016, operating in Bristol, Bath, and many other locations in the South of England. Having trained at the Garden Design School under renowned RHS gold medal winners, he is a registered member of the Society of Garden Designers and has undertaken work across the whole of the South of England, from Exeter to Kent. Based in Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, he has built strong relationships with many clients who come back to him again and again for further developments. In both 2020 and 2023 he was awarded a Marshalls Register Award for best project in collaboration with a contractor; this was followed by another certificate for Best Project at the 2022 Association of Professional Landscapers Awards. In 2023 he was delighted to be chosen as a member of the Core Planting Team for the Gold Medal Winning Talitha Arts Garden, one of the highlights of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Previously a Chemistry teacher and Head of Science for over 10 years, Tom has always had a passion for making a difference, listening to and understanding the needs of the people he works with, and being professional at all times. This is reflected in his landscape design work across Somerset, Wiltshire and the South of England and can be evidenced in the testimony of his clients.
