Helping you to make the most of your garden

About Lisa Lempsink

I started my business after spending 18 years in industry and retraining, qualifying as a Garden Designer from the Scottish Agricultural College in Edinburgh back in 2008. My design studio is based in central Edinburgh which means I’m easily accessible to clients across the Lothians, Fife, Scottish Borders, Forth Valley, the central belt of Scotland and beyond if required.

"There is no spot of ground, however arid, bare or ugly, that cannot be tamed into such a state as may give an impression of beauty and delight"

Gertrude Jekyll 1843-1932

My aim is to provide my clients with beautiful, aspirational yet functional, affordable gardens. Success in doing so is based upon my passion for creating planting and design schemes for a whole range of garden styles and outdoor spaces.

My horticultural knowledge and expertise is built on my solid background of creating garden designs for more than 10 years.

"After years of trying to keep an invasive bamboo at bay that had overtaken a large part of our garden - a solution was badly needed. In stepped Lisa who was not phased by the challenge. For our project Lisa needed to eliminate the bamboo whilst being sympathetic to existing features such as old stone walls, beech hedges plus a mature ash tree. Lisa grasped our brief and made great planting and landscaping suggestions that have fulfilled our vision. The change has worked so well for our family garden. We love our special outdoor space which with Lisa's clever planting enjoys bursts of colour throughout the year. I highly recommend Lisa for her sympathetic, artistic and knowledgeable approach! "
