Creating Gardens

Beautiful, successful gardens don’t grow on trees! They are the result of careful planning, good communication between the designer, contractor and the client, and the result of excellent workmanship. What we do and how we do it has been recognised by the leading industry body, BALI (British Association of Landscape Industries) and we have been the recipient of six BALI awards. We have also won two gold medals and Best in Show at Gardening Scotland.

Garden Designers

We have worked closely for many years with garden designers, in particular Carolyn Grohmann of Secret Gardens.  Almost all our award-winning projects and show gardens were designed by Carolyn and they are displayed throughout the pages of this website.  We also work with a number of other highly creative garden designers including Lynn Hill and Ruth Gebbie and we have built three water features at Jupiter Artland near Edinburgh designed by the internationally acclaimed designer, Arabella Lennox-Boyd.

Collaborative projects

We love working with designers for the fresh ideas they bring and their project management skills and we like to play our part in ensuring their designs are built to the highest standards.  If you are a designer and have a project you would like us to build, please do not hesitate to give Robin a call for an informal chat.

In-House Designer

As Water Gems has grown over the years and as demand for design and build projects has increased, we have recently taken on our own designer.  Chris Wright joined us in 2016. He has a degree in Landscape Architecture and we have already built a number of his designs.  We look forward to planting them up and photographing them this summer.
