Declan Buckley is a London based landscape and garden designer. Since 1999 his practice, Buckley Design Associates, has worked in the UK and overseas on projects in urban, rural and coastal sites, from pocket–sized gardens to large–scale landscapes and public parks.

His work as a garden designer has taken him from his Islington studio in central London to the outskirts of Mumbai and back to his native Ireland via Belgium and Broadstairs, Suffolk and Sri Lanka. Most of his clients come through word-of-mouth recommendation and the many articles published about his work.
