Check out our customer testimonials:
Paul from Newton Mearns
"We invited North Hill Gardens to quote for our landscaping work based on receipt of a leaflet through the door. From our initial meeting with Michael, we were impressed by the vision he had for transforming our small and challenging garden space into a practical child friendly and visually appealing environment."
Lynda from Anniesland
"I am very pleased with the work that was carried out by North Hill Gardens. The three gardeners who came were very nice, friendly, efficient and very hard working. They consulted me and kept me informed throughout so the end result was what I hoped for."
Anne from Giffnock
"I was introduced to North Hill Gardens by a good friend, who has had some excellent work done. The North Hill team who attended were fantastic. They were punctual, hardworking, clean, tidy and very creative. A pleasure to have them around the house and garden, as they created a wonderful centrepiece for my garden."
Leslie from Pollokshields
"This is the first time we've used North Hill Gardens and we are very pleased with the outcome. They provided a good service at the very reasonable price. They worked fast and cleaned everything up after work. Thank you!"
Stephen from Kelvindale
"We had become disappointed with our ability to keep our back garden tidy and also create a low maintenance but enjoyable and useable leisure space so decided to employ a professional garden design company. We were impressed with the standard of work undertaken by North Hill Gardens team and that they arrived when agreed and completed the work on time and to budget."
Michael from Clydebank
"North Hill Gardens Design was recommended to us by a friend of my wife's, so we contacted Michael who visited us and produced a design for the garden which included minimal maintenance as an essential. Michael and his staff always work hard and to the best of their ability to achieve what the customer has ordered, and nothing is too much trouble for them. We would wholeheartedly recommend North Hill Gardens for any garden project."
Carol from Bridge of Weir
"We have been using North Hill Gardens for 6 months now and they have transformed our garden from an overgrown and out of control mess into a garden which is a delight to look out on. They are the most hardworking and efficient team I have ever come across. Nothing is too much trouble and their attention to detail is superb. A truly professional and friendly company."
Emma from Shawlands
"We are thrilled with our new garden, it has provided us with a whole extra room to eat, socialise and relax. From our first meeting with Michael we felt relaxed and reassured that he would work with us to develop a design which was practical, beautiful and within our budget. Using his own team of landscapers and builders took away any pressure of sourcing materials and ensured that the finished garden looked as good as the design."
Lisa from Westend
"The team at North Hill Gardens are a joy to work with. I have used them personally and commercially and they have been creative, consistent, hardworking and efficient. From designing private gardens to installing a living wall in my design studio with monthly maintenance, I would thoroughly recommend them!"
Margaret from Bridge of Weir
"We have used North Hill Gardens for a couple of years following my husband's back operation. They have provided us with a friendly efficient service during his recovery and will have no hesitation in using them again in the future. Thank you for keeping our garden looking good."
Garry from Mosspark
"After my first consultation with Michael @ North Hill Gardens both my wife & my myself felt comfortable & reassured that we'd finally found the right company. Michael made us both feel at ease and nothing was too much hassle. He was informative, creative & also realistic. When he came back to discuss the plan & design of the garden we were delighted, it was perfect, just what we wanted. In short I would highly recommend North Hill Gardens. I found all staff to be personable & accommodating, but most importantly they were on time & budget."
David from Partick
"The quality of a company can be determined by what they do when things go wrong. We are delighted with the new design of our garden and when things inevitably went wrong on the laboring side they were sorted immediately. We are delighted to recommend Michael to potential customers."
At North Hill, we like to do things differently. We believe that our gardens and outdoor spaces should be considered as much as our interior spaces. We see so many gardens that are undervalued or unappreciated, and we aim to change that.
Let’s see what makes us different!
• Our ethos
North Hill Gardens is committed to transform how people use their gardens and outdoor spaces. For us, each design is an opportunity to create a unique set of ideas which are perfectly crafted and curated to meet the specific requirements of each and every client. We want our gardens and outdoor spaces to be seen as natural extensions of the indoor, allowing everyone to benefit from the outdoors all year round.
• How we work
First of all, gaining insight into the requirements of each and every project is essential in allowing us to fully understand every environment we work in. This is why we undertake a thorough consultation with every client before we start each project. Once we are in the studio and ready to start the design, we undertake a comprehensive design process. This includes several stages which can include:
By having an eye for detail, including thoughtful consideration and in-depth analysis, we can create designs which are like no other.
• Why we do it
The climate crisis is changing the way we must think about our effect on the environment. For the everyday person, it often feels like the ability to make any significant impact is out of our hands. However, this could not be further from the truth. Protecting, enriching and accommodating the natural environment, along with all its inhabitants is one of the best things almost all of us can do. By reducing the quantity of hard surfaces and introducing more planting into your garden, we create new habitats for insects, birds and small animals. The best benefit is you get to enjoy sharing your garden with them too! Our team of landscape architects and botanists work hand in hand to find the best ways we can in cooperate wildlife into our outdoor spaces.
• Who we are
The North Hill Gardens group consists of three companies, each with its own purpose: Design, Build and Maintain. The Design studio is primarily office based and consists of a team of highly talented and experienced Landscape Architects. Each team member has a unique background, which informs their approach and allows us to share our knowledge and expertise in order to create the best design-led solutions.
Our construction team consists of a large group of skilled and experienced tradesmen. This includes carpenters, welders, stone masons and of course, landscapers. The team are a friendly and hardworking bunch who have a wide set of skills, enabling them to complete every job to the highest possible standards. Everything we create is built to last.
Our maintenance team is under our sister company – Grassgo. The key to any successful garden or landscape is effective maintenance. Our team of gardeners and botanists have a vast knowledge of plants and the natural environment, allowing them to deliver regular maintenance to our private and commercial clients. They also complete one off planting or clearance projects when required
• Where do we work?
North Hill Gardens is based in Glasgow. The majority of our clients are based here and in the surrounding areas; however, we have recently expanded to cover Edinburgh, Fife and much of the central belt. We also undertake projects further afield; having completed works as far away as the west coast Isles, and even the Highlands.
