Some beautiful and exotic plants from in and around the botanical gardens in Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife.
This was a lovely opportunity for me to design a very contemporary garden including a rill and pond as a bespoke water feature, something I have been wanting to do for some time. The rill runs around the whole seating area with the planting behind it. Beautiful porcelain pavers were used in two different colours with 3 large lollipop trees, Prunus lusitanica. Beautiful lighting including stone globes complete the look. Many thanks to Dave and his men at Concept Landscaping and Danny Farrell of Farrell Electrical for doing a brilliant job!
This was a lovely garden that was built and planted about 3 years ago now for clients who had just moved into a beautiful detached Georgian villa in Portobello. I went back this summer to see how it has come on and was delighted to find they had kept it in immaculate order. The build was done by Concept Landscaping using Globalstone sandstone paving, setts and walling and used lovely reclaimed sleepers for the raised beds that looked perfect with the age of the house.
Last planting of the year all set out and ready to go. Garden built for me by Concept Landscaping with lovely white rendered raised beds, Millboard bench seat, buff brown Globalstone sandstone pavers and artificial lawn. Can't wait to see this garden fill out and properly become and extra room to this lovely house.
I did a planting design 3 years ago now for a lovely couple just outside Linlithgow. Their garden was 'all to the front' of the house with a lovely sunny aspect and rural location. The borders are a mixture of hot and cold colours and all are wildlife friendly. Three years on the garden is looking very established with a wide variety of shrubs, herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, fruit trees and Rowans getting along very well together.
This lovely project in Edinburgh was finished earlier this week. It has been a great project to work on for great clients. Many thanks to Concept Landscaping and Farrell Electrical who have been terrific to work with on this.

Great to see this garden take shape! Concept Landscaping have been working really hard using the beautiful paddlestone from CED to create these lovely walls and turn this water feature into something special. Thanks guys.
