Creating beautiful gardens using a mixture of imaginative,
bespoke hard landscaping and colourful, fragrant planting.

Gary Ormiston Garden Design is one of Edinburgh & the Lothians leading landscape designers. After Gary finishing his studies at horticultural college in the early 2000’s, we have since this time been creating outstanding bespoke gardens year in, year out. We are dedicated to constructing stunning, life-enhancing outside spaces for our clients – beautiful and practical, with a strong sense of colour, fragrance and style, and for a wide range of properties and budgets.

We deliver this through our comprehensive service from design, excavations, build and to completion. All our projects are through our own in-house team of nine full time staff, with no sub-contractors. With Julie as administrative manager, Gary & Helen as lead designers and our two landscaping teams, both led by Colin our works manager.

Please click on our garden portfolio, before/after & reviews pages to view a variety of our work and feedback, going back the last 17 years. If you would like a survey or design of your garden, or even just a chat, we can help. Get in touch using or contact page to discuss any aspects of your proposed garden project. We look forward to hearing from you!

We were delighted with the personable and professional service Gary provided with our garden project. He fully consulted with us throughout the planning of the project and was more than happy to accommodate our budget. Gary transformed our featureless back garden and created a lovely modern space which we look forward to enjoying.We would highly recommend Gary and his team.
