Professional Garden Design and Maintenance on the Isle of Skye

t: 07900 384 273


I can provide all aspects of garden maintenance for private gardens and commercial clients on the Isle of Skye. You may be looking for a one off tidy up or regular visits on a weekly or fortnightly basis, I can be very flexible in these arrangements. Call me and we can talk about your requirements.

Services include:

  • Grass cutting and lawn treatment (feeding, scarifying and aerating)
  • Hedge trimming and tree pruning
  • Establishing and cultivating planting beds
  • Applications of specific herbicides, pesticides and fungicides
  • Pressure washing driveways and patios

Design and Build

The designed landscape has always been inspiring to me, I'm at my happiest when fully immersed in the creative and technical considerations of design. Its great to be given the opportunity and freedom to work without restraints but it’s also important to know what you want from your garden.

During my time in Glasgow I was working with various types of steel, tropical hardwoods and ultra contemporary natural stone paving imported from almost every continent. These materials suit an ever changing and industrial city. On Skye I would like to reflect the wider landscape in my designs. Using traditional and locally sourced materials, the end result will be truly unique and timeless.

Contact me by phone or email and we’ll arrange a visit to discuss your requirements. I’ll take some measurements and draw up a 3D model, this will show you exactly what to expect from the finished work. Once the design is agreed, I’ll provide you with a quote and hopefully we can proceed.


My name is James and I’m passionate about spending time outdoors. Growing up in north west Skye, my first job in the Dunvegan Castle gardens introduced me to the complexities of developing and maintaining a garden space.

I graduated with a BA in Landscape Architecture from Edinburgh College of Art in 2002 and spent a couple of years working in the city. I set up and ran my own landscaping business in Glasgow for 10 years, learning a lot and enjoying the fantastic urban gardens. In 2014 I moved back to Skye, I missed the people, the landscape and the climbing!
