About Us



RHS award winning garden design team Sarah Keyser and Sam North launched CouCou Design as a consultancy practice in 2013.


After more than ten years as a Clothing Buyer in the fashion industry and motivated by the exciting opportunities of her first garden, Sarah decided to study the subject she loves the most, horticulture.  She has since completed the RHS General and Advanced qualifications in horticulture, followed by Garden Design at Warwickshire College. 


Sarah prides herself on her friendly and sensitive approach to clients needs, and ensures her designs are perfectly suited to complement your home, lifestyle and practical requirements. 


As a Surveyor, Sam has over ten years of experience in the construction industry. His surveys and technical skills are an integral part of the design process for both CouCou Design and other design professionals. Surveys are undertaken using specialist equipment to create accurate topographical plans, ensuring your new design fits perfectly into your garden.


We produce 3D visuals and animations to complement traditional hand-drawn and CAD drawings where required. The addition of 3D drawings can greatly improve the design process, creating a clear vision and bringing the design to life. We also undertake this service on behalf of other Garden Designers and Architects.


As a team we are passionate about transforming unused or unloved gardens into beautiful spaces you will love. In addition to enhancing your quality of life, we believe that a professionally designed garden can be a sound financial investment, adding value and character to your property.


Based in Oxfordshire, we are perfectly positioned to design gardens from North London to Warwickshire. however, we are also happy to travel further afield.


We have designed spaces ranging from small city courtyards to sensory school gardens. We are always happy to discuss new projects and would love to hear from you.
