Andrew Pfeiffer is an Australian landscape architect. He was born in Sydney and grew up on a farm in the Bega Valley. Pfeiffer studied horticulture and landscape design at the Arboretum Kalmthout in Belgium and at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in London, later working as a student gardener at both the Bowhill House and Boughton House estates of the Duke of Buccleuch in Scotland and England.
Two Pfeiffer-designed gardens (a desert garden in Sydney and a woodland garden of A. Alfred Taubman in Michigan) were featured in the 2008 book Luxury Private Gardens. Pfeiffer wrote: "When gardens like the one at Château de Courances in the Île-de-France near Paris or the Odette Monteiro estate at Correias near Rio de Janeiro are stripped down to their bare essentials, they are like a well-cut couturier’s gown—nothing but an utterly simple response to the unadorned landscape or the naked human body they are designed to fit."
Pfeiffer believes that "great gardens have a timeless quality" and "should be thought of with a long view, and not in terms of superficial and fleeting fashion." "The natural surroundings, combined with a sense of place, should always determine the character of a garden."
