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. We create gardens 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.


Design approach

Every place has it’s own unique qualities. I design harmonious spaces that are sympathetic to the surrounding landscape. These gardens also 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. For truly individual and inspiring gardens, I like to incorporate bespoke hand-crafted garden benches, pergolas, water features and sculptures.

 Planting style

I have a very natural planting style. The plants I use plants are appropriate for the environment they are being planted in. They create a soft harmonious look that is in keeping with the surrounding landscape. As a result, borders planted in this way are also easier to maintain. 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 then spent a couple of years working at a local nursery offering planting advice. Since Blossoming Gardens was established in 2010, I have designed large rural gardens and small urban front gardens. I have also created both traditional and contemporary gardens as well as naturalistic gardens. I work with good contractors to ensure your garden is created seamlessly. Furthermore if you just want to change the planting, I am able to create coherent planting schemes through the seasons.

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.
