Based in Edinburgh designing gardens throughout Scotland

Choosing the right designer  – with the right insight and experience to produce the best design solution for your aspirations – is the crucial start to achieving the right garden for you.

I come to each project with a sense of curiosity – I want to learn about all the factors that will inform the best possible garden design for you; I want to learn what you want from your garden, how it relates to your home, it’s situation and your life style. With this understanding I can then work with you to make your garden a uniquely special place for you, your family and your life style.

I believe that a garden designer should serve their clients in the same way that an architect does when designing homes or an interior designer when drawing up interior schemes; with enquiry, knowledge and experience that reflects and enhances the way you live.

As such you may choose to retain me to enact your whole design to completion or you may wish to take some of these roles on yourself. As you can see in the Services Section I am happy to work with you in which ever way best suits you.

Every project is exclusive – some designs evolve as we explore your ambitions for you garden along with any practical constraints. Other designs reveal themselves quite quickly. The most important thing is to achieve the correct design for you in the way that best suits you.

I know from experience the most important part of good garden design is a healthy working relationship between client and designer. Achieving a full understanding of your requirements and aspirations, along with a full assessment of the site characteristics is fundamental to a happy project with successful outcomes.

This working relationship begins with an initial garden design consultation to establish an understanding of how to make the most of your garden through the sharing of ideas, vision and practical advice.

With experience in large and small scale garden design I offer design services from site assessment to full outline plans, planting schemes and project management. All available packaged to your particular requirements.
