Water Gems icon


Water Gems is a multi-award-winning Edinburgh landscaper and water features specialist based in central Scotland. We offer a full range of services including garden and water feature design and high quality landscape construction, from small gardens or ponds to full design and build packages. We have extensive experience, a very broad range of skills and an innovative approach which allow us to transform outdoor spaces and create beautiful gardens. We love problem-solving, relish a challenge and take tremendous pride in our work. Our aim is to impress and please our clients with every project and to build them all to award-winning standards. We are members of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI).


We build beautiful, sustainable gardens and provide a comprehensive service in all aspects of landscaping. We work with a number of highly creative garden designers and architects as well as offering our own in-house design and build service. We work on projects of all sizes and with all scales of budgets.


We are leading specialists in the design, creation and maintenance of water features in Scotland. We were founded in 1993 by Nick and Annie Benge and have a strong academic background. We are passionate about what we do.


The quality and standard of our work has been recognised over the years by the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) and we have won six awards since joining the association including the Grand Award in 2009. We also have two gold medals to our name for show gardens at Gardening Scotland.   Awards are an excellent way of showing our clients how well we do things but they are also a tremendous motivation for the people who work for and with Water Gems. Our aim is to carry out award standard work for all our clients.


We would love to hear from you. If your project is about landscaping, please contact Robin. If it is a water-based enquiry, please contact Nick. If you’re not sure which, just contact either of them and they would be happy to help!
