Riverside Garden Design & Landscape Designer

The Brief

After an initial meeting the following observations were made:-

  • The site would be enhanced by blending into the landscape.
  • A feeling of enclosure for privacy and enjoyment of the outdoor living area is required.
  • A high water table in places requires the land to be drained and re-contoured in specific areas.
  • A sense of journey needs to be created, using landscaping, planting and lighting.
  • The high bank to the rear of the house requires sensitive planting.
  • Protection from prevailing NE winds

Garden Design Services in Scotland


  • Create a calm, green space with limited hard landscaping and several planting areas.
  • Planting on the property on the western boundary, sympathetic to the riverside planting i.e. bog planting.
  • Provide an outdoor living area with an informal fire pit and terrace overlooking the river.
  • Contour the land across the eastern boundary in order to create some terracing for further tree planting and aid protection from the prevailing wind.
  • Add a veil of planting to the northern boundary to screen the road but still allow views across the fields beyond.
  • Hard prune existing shrubs and planting and remove in some cases. Replace with herbaceous borders, sculpture and tree planting.

Planning allowed for re-instating central window as the front entrance, this will enable more symmetry in the design process.
