Chiltern Garden Design is the brainchild of passionate gardener and talented designer Sam Proctor MSGD.

Sam has been creating beautiful gardens for over a decade. Since leaving a City career in Marketing, she has honed her skills to a very high level, taking the Diploma in Garden Design at the prestigious London College of Garden Design, for which she was awarded a Distinction. Here she studied under the tutelage of Andrew Wilson FSGD, the former head judge at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, and as Chelsea Gold Medal winner in 2017, one of the top Garden Designers in the world.

She then spent a further three years gaining a fully rounded working knowledge of garden design and installation at the highest level, working at an SGD registered practice, on a range of gardens large and small, and where attention to detail was taken to the next level. Since then she has been running Chiltern Garden Design as a flourishing design practice, focusing on the Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire areas of the Chiltern Hills. In 2023, she achieved MSGD status, (fully registered member of the Society of Garden Designers), one of only a couple of hundred MSGDs in the country, representing and promoting the highest standards in garden design.

Her passion is creating gardens to suit the needs and lifestyle of her clients, never imposing a one-size fits all solution, but finding a style and scheme to fit the complex needs of busy people.

Sam has lived in the Chilterns for years, falling in love with its rolling hills, gorgeous old market towns and ancient beech woods full of bluebells in the spring. She’s now made Amersham her home, having also lived in Great Missenden, Wendover and Chesham. Chiltern Garden Design covers the whole Chilterns area including Chesham, Great Missenden, the Chalfonts, Chorleywood and Rickmansworth, Wendover and Chesham Bois.
