"We believe in working with you and your ideas to create an outdoor space that reflects your personality. Our gardens bring a sense of order and calm that is both functional and aesthetic." Andrew Whyte - Founder, Whyte Gardens
Andrew Whyte and the team from Whyte Gardens have over 20 years experience creating gardens that people love to live in. Specialising in contemporary spaces, they help bring outdoor spaces to life, whether it’s for entertaining, relaxing with family or just a quiet contemplative corner.
"We believe that the devil is in the detail. Designing and constructing a garden is a huge task. Yet it’s all the little things that will ultimately make it work or not. It starts with ensuring the design meets your brief and will work on the site. It’s then about choosing the correct materials and proper plants, right from the start. It includes knowing how to work with all the necessary suppliers, understanding what they need from us and what we need from them to ensure a seamless construction experience. It’s about selecting the right ﬁnishes, construction methods and materials to ensure all elements of your garden last for decades. It’s about knowing and understanding how all the elements of the design will ﬁt together. This only comes from years of hard-won experience. Finally it’s about the details in the design that will make everything come together in one harmonious, integrated masterpiece, you can call your garden."
