LANDSCAPE GARDENERS EDINBURGH
Just to clear this one up – ‘soft landscaping’ generally refers to soil, turf, trees and colours. ‘Hard landscaping’ meanwhile is all of the civil engineering, grading and groundworks, the walls, paths, driveways, stonework and patios.
Your landscaping garden project will feature some, if not all, of the above. Between us, we will ensure that whatever your plan; a home for pets, a kids’ playground, an entertaining space, a sanctuary, an all in one – we make it happen!
Using our years of extensive soft and hard landscape design experience we’ll take the time to get to know you, your ‘must-haves and your ‘nice-to-haves’ to ensure we deliver your project just the way you imagined it.
So whether you plan on digging it all up and start afresh, or you would like simply to make what you have even better – we’d love to hear about it.

A Message From Gavin Mathison
As the GM Land Solutions business grows like a well-kept garden, Gavin remains clear.
“I know it’s running out of style a bit but; turning up on time, keeping high quality standards and respecting the properties of those we work for are crucial to us. I grew up believing you do what you say you’re going to do – tasks, timescales, budgets – and we do what we commit to do. If we deliver a £5,000 project or a £50,000 project, the one thing we must do is provide value for our client. We need them to be happy, delighted, even ecstatic! Only then are GM Land Solutions satisfied with our work.”
Landscaping Frequently Asked Questions
What is your process for providing a landscaping quote and next stages if I accept?
If you can provide some information regarding the project, along with any relevant photos, budget, plans and sizes we can turn this around pretty quickly for you. If it’s a larger project and you are looking for our input, we can arrange a site visit and consultation to discuss your requirements and budgets, look at what your requirements are practically as well as the ’nice to have’ options you may desire. We will look to provide you with something that works, or if budget is less of an issue, come up with some possible options.
Are you fully insured?
Yes, £10 million employers liability and £5 million public liability. This is ensures we provide adequate protection to both our commercial clients and larger landscaping projects.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We generally prefer bacs payments as it is easier for both parties. That said, we can accept cheques or cash if required. No ‘cash discounts’ will be given though!
Can you provide the build and installation if I already have design plans?
Yes, we even work for garden designers on a regular basis, this means we are well used to working from plans and other peoples ideas. If there were any issues we would flag these up to you at the start. The only thing we (very rarely) come across is sometimes designs that look great but perhaps don’t fit a budget, or are practical to install. We can advise accordingly and often come up with something very similar that works!
If we are unsure of what we want our new landscape project to look like, are you able to help?
Of course – we generally work with clients to establish what they need (practically) and want (visually), to come up with a plan. We do need to know a idea of budget on this, as there is no point us coming up with ideas and plans that aren’t achievable – We would rather have a clear idea and come up with ideas and materials that can turn your dream into a reality! We also work with garden designers, so can introduce one of our partners to you, if required for a more comprehensive initial plan prior to engaging us.
What if we are outside of Edinburgh?
Whilst most of our landscaping work is in Edinburgh, we cover up to around an hour from Edinburgh generally and we can make exceptions to this. With many aspects of our work, because of the equipment we have that is solely for our use on your projects, means we can be very efficient with turning projects around, so distance isn’t always a problem for us. Check with us to find out – the more information you can provide the better idea we can give as to whether it would be a good fit.
How much does landscaping cost?
This does of course depend on size and type of landscaping required. On a typical new build plot, for a full project including some planting, patio area, path along back of house and turfing, anywhere from around £8000 – £15,000 + VAT depending on size and materials. A typical mono block driveway would likely cost from around £3000 + VAT upwards depending on size. Of course, there are options to suit most budgets so the best way to find out what is possible for you is to get in touch and let us know your requirements and budget
