Two times RHS Gold Medal and People’s Choice Award winning London based garden designer Tom Simpson has always had a great passion for gardens and the natural landscape. Tom approaches each project with the same enthusiasm and dedication, working hard to achieve the best and most beautiful solution for his clients.
In July 2019 Tom won his second RHS Gold Medal at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. The ‘Pledge Pathway to Progress’ garden sponsored by Cancer Research UK also won People’s Choice and Best Construction. Tom made the rare feat of winning a second gold a year after winning his first at Hampton Court in 2018.
Tom’s debut RHS show garden was the Gold Medal winning South West Water Green Garden, which was commended by the judges for its originality, ambition and flair.
Tom was selected as one of Pro Landscaper’s 30 under 30, a prestigious award celebrating young talent in the landscaping industry. As one of the thirty winners of 2018, Tom has been tipped as young designer with a bright future ahead of him. The awards were among some of the toughest to date with a record number applicants.
Attending London College of Garden Design, Tom graduated with distinction in 2016 and was awarded the External Judges Award, a special commendation for excellence. Following on from his success at LCGD, Tom was shortlisted for the Society of Garden Designers Student Awards in 2016.
