Meet the Team at
Thai Garden Design

Thai Garden Design was originally formed as Pornchai Garden by Somjit Kowtho in 1987. He built up the company over the next two decades. As an individual, is recognised today as one of the most successful landscape architects in Thailand.

His daughter, Sutiya, and her husband, Ben Shingleton, now run the day-to-day management and design of every landscape, under the influence of Somjit. They have helped to grow the company from a mainly Thai customer base to an International one; and now Thai Garden Design build landscapes and gardens for both Thai and Expat customers in equal measure. Ben’s background is within landscaping design in the UK, and Sutiya has designed gardens in Thailand since she was eleven years old.

The rest of the Team

The rest of the team is a diverse mix of construction, carpentry, engineering and plant and tree experts from Europe and Asia. As a team, they have undertaken all manner of projects; from International hotel gardens, condominium projects, resort landscapes and their core business – everyday domestic gardens.
