How can I design the perfect garden for you?
Blossoming Gardens offers a garden design service for those looking to create beautiful and functional outdoor spaces that reflect your personality and enhance your lifestyle. I start by meeting with you and walking around your garden with you. I listen to your ideas of how you would like your garden to look and what you would like to achieve with this space. After that initial meeting, I will design a garden that is tailored to you. From there we can work together to create your perfect garden.
Every place has it’s own unique qualities and I design harmonious spaces that are sympathetic to the surrounding landscape. These gardens have a strong connection to the house, based on it’s architectural style.
Where possible, I work with natural landscaping materials, such as stone, timber and water in my designs. To create a truly individual and inspiring garden for you, I like to incorporate bespoke hand-crafted garden benches, pergolas, water features and sculptures.
I have a very natural planting style and use plants that are appropriate for the environment they are being planted in. These create a soft harmonious look that is in keeping with the surrounding landscape. Borders planted in this way are easier to maintain as the plants do not need staking, frequent watering, chemical fertilisers or pesticides.
I studied at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh and have a diploma in Garden Design. I have also worked at a local nursery offering planting advice and use this experience to create coherent planting schemes throughout the seasons. Since Blossoming Gardens was established in 2010, I have designed large rural gardens and small urban front gardens that are traditional, contemporary and naturalistic. I work with good contractors to ensure your garden is created seamlessly.
Blossoming Gardens is based in just outside Edinburgh in the East Lothian village of Inveresk.
We work on garden design projects for clients throughout Edinburgh, the Lothians, Borders and Fife.
