Kirsty is very professional. She has great insight for garden design and always has ideas that meets what we are looking for. She is very prompt at replying, at arranging site visits and co-ordinating with landscapers/builders. Very easy to get along with, and we could not have got as far as we have without her!
I would highly recommend Kirsty and the Garden Design Team if you are planning a large-scale garden overhaul. Friendly, knowledgeable and informative service taking the garden from conceptual planning through to construction. Kirsty is always there to help and discuss any issues even after the project is complete. Excellent service.
I have used The Garden Design Company for lots of different projects, at my home, over the last seven years... Kirsty's knowledge and ideas are excellent and her friendly, professional service is second to none... We started with a new build house in an overgrown ex agricultural field and we now have a home surrounded by a stunning landscaped garden... I cannot recommend Kirsty enough !! x

Kirsty has done several projects for us over the years. She sourced and arranged the plants and shrubs beautifully. They were then planted by her colleague Tom, who has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to gardens. Kirsty always responds quickly and delivers goods when she says she will. We would highly recommend Kirsty and team to anyone, regardless of project size. We look forward to the next project.
Kirsty at The Garden Design Company had great ideas for my garden. She knew how to turn the ideas into reality, talking them through with me every step of the way. Her network of good contractors enabled it all to be delivered on schedule and within budget.
Kirsty was able to take my design brief (which was minimum in both desired design outcome and detail) and create exactly what I wanted. The design had to mirror the house which combines Edwardian simplicity with a modern extension. She was firstly able to show me her designs in both 2-D and 3-D, so I could visualise the finished product and therefore make amendments before we broke ground. Along with the creativity of the hard landscaping, Kirsty ran the landscape contractor selection and then worked with them to ensure a smooth implementation.
Next came the planting design which used some of the existing plants and flowers combined with over 800 additional plants. Kirsty come up with a series of themed beds ranging from “Alpine” to “Hot”. And she threw in a garden lighting design whilst she was at it!
Finally, Kirsty was there to supervise all of the layout and planting.
Overall, I’ve been really impressed by Kirsty’s ability to understand my vague brief and create something that spectacularly combines old and new styles with a wide array of textures and colours. Kirsty is a delight to work with and I would definitely recommend her services.
I have no hesitation in giving this company the highest recommendation
Creative, knowledgeable and reliable.
Kirsty has done some very innovative designs to get our gardens to beautiful standards. She offers lots of ideas and colour schemes to choose from for the various seasons and provides support and guidance to my Gardeners.
Kirsty was excellent throughout the design and execution process, a real joy to work with. The scope was to integrate a new build into an existing plot with a great garden layout. The new area had to be sympathetic with, and the design of the new build. Not an easy task but it has been achieved with aplomb. The whole experience of working with Kirsty was brilliant. It was very collaborative with lots of listening and challenge. Just what you need when you know what you want but don't really.
Kirsty helped with contractor selection and supervision. She was always at hand when needed. She also provided a fully costed planting schedule and helped with the sourcing of the plants.
Thank you from a very happy customer."

Ellie House reviewed The Garden Design Company Scotland
Kirsty was full of ideas and really listened to what would suit us. She was patient and creative, and working to a budget wasn't an issue. Her diagrams were thorough, as were her instructions. We felt very well informed and inspired by her drawings. She was also really encouraging and broke everything down into manageable stages. I could not recommend her enough. She was always on the other end of the phone for advice, and we won't hesitate to use her in the future.

HOUZZ REVIEW - 5 STAR
Project Date: June 2016
Kirsty is a lovely lady and was so helpful when we did our terrace and then again when we did our garden. She was patient, listened really well and took time to understand our style and budget constraints. She really helped transform our garden area Which has been much admired. We know nothing about plants or planting and she gave us great direction. I can‘t recommend Kirsty highly enough.
I first contacted Kirsty after 5 years of pondering what on earth to do with my tired courtyard garden in West End of Aberdeen. Kirsty visited and immediately captured my thoughts and turned it into a clear & concise plan and added much more of her own expertise and within no time at all we had a design that was inspiring. Which I certainly could never have achieved! She then produced a work specification and working closely with Landform, presented me with a fully costed scope of work. Worked started on time & was completed on time and the standard of work was exceptional with Kirsty overseeing for progress on a regular basis. She also designed and organised the planting. In summary, I am thrilled with the end result and would not hesitate in recommending her services or that of Landform. In fact so much so I moved on seamlessly to transforming my front garden as well!
Absolutely Delighted! Albert Terrace
We have used The Garden Design Company a number of times over the past few years for designing our show home gardens. Kirsty has always delivered impeccable designs and is extremely thorough, organised, reliable and hardworking when it comes to ensuring the designs are accurately and efficiently delivered by the landscape contractor. Timescales on site can often change at the last minute but Kirsty is always very accommodating and patient. We know we can trust her to translate our vision into well thought out designs that complement our homes. All in all, a pleasure to work with! Would highly recommend.
I asked the Garden Design Co. to advise upon and plan the location for a new bespoke greenhouse and surrounding flower beds. It was a difficult site on a fairly steep slope and the subsequent design by Kirsty McLean, the execution by her contractor, Landform Ltd., and the end result were absolutely excellent, perfectly fitted the location and totally met my aspirations.
I found working with Kirsty extremely rewarding. She is creative, knowledgeable and professional and I am able to recommend her work to anyone looking for a new garden to be created.
