A selection of our many testimonials and references written by previous satisfied clients of Terra Firma Gardens from Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh.

"Hi Susan
Can't express how delighted we are with our new garden. We bought a brand new house which came with an eyesore of a back garden. It posed many challenges including poor drainage, poor privacy, sloping site and a paucity of vegetation, all within a relatively small plot.

Susan provided a professional site survey and based her plan around this having taken instruction on the look we were hoping to achieve. Her landscapers are highly skilled and work as a team. They all take a pride in their work and aim to please.

The end result is a garden we love to spend time in,and it has added hugely to our enjoyment of the house."

" Susan,
A huge thank-you to you and your team for designing and making the most wonderful garden for us.  We really appreciated the thought that you put into the design, including speaking to our housebound daughter about her hopes for the garden.  We were also very grateful for how you incorporated our thoughts and priorities.  

Your team were an absolute delight to have around the place during construction.  They are the hardest-working crew we’ve ever encountered, and we can attest that they were here in ALL weathers – gales, snow, sleet, pouring rain.  They are so professional, down to the tiniest detail, and we always felt that nothing was too much trouble.  It was a pleasure to have such respectful and cheerful workmen around the place.  We missed them when they left!

We very much appreciated that you stuck to the original quote that you gave us, as well.  We hope to have you back sometime to put in a small pond, and we’ll let you know “how our garden grows”.

All the best,
Christine and Michael

"My journey started with an exceptional garden redesign plan created by Susan who is very talented. Her team who translated the plan into reality were enthusiastic and great at what they do. Redesigning a garden space is not something anyone does often and I felt in safe professional hands from start to finish".

"You have made our garden and driveway absolutely beautiful.   They gave us a professional service from design through to completion and we are delighted with the end result.  I would not hesitate to use Terrafirma again and often recommend them to others".

"Susan the garden is a dream and not one complaint or fault except that now we will need to get you back to do the front. The back garden now shows up the front. Great job done on time in budget and no mess or inconvienence. Your workers where great to meet and watch, true professionals going about their business. Tell Davie, Marcus, John, Michael and Stevie a great job and hope to see them all back soon.

I would highly recommend you and your team for future work.

Thanks again,
John and Sandra Quinn"

"Hi Susan

I thought I would just drop you a quick line to say that our garden has been very well admired by everyone that has seen it since it was completed – and that has been more than a few people! Mary and I love it too and that's really what matters. Thank you for creating it. I just thought I would let you know that.

Best Wishes, Peter"

"We are absolutely thrilled with our "new" garden. What was a wild slope, full of weeds, is now a fantastic, easy-to-maintain and beautifully finished series of terraced beds of flowers and shrubs. It's a north-facing garden but Susan's recommendation for the type of stone has really lifted the whole area. We couldn't have imagined a greater transformation - it's a pleasure just to go and hang out the washing! The team were polite, courteous and very hardworking and their workmanship is a credit to Terra Firma.
Thank you".

"Hello Susan,

We are very pleased with the result and wanted to let you know. The sleepers and the paving work well. I like the little acer and the climbers you have chosen for the borders. Thanks again and please pass on our appreciation to your team. Good luck with your furure projects,

Anne "

"Dear Susan, Please find a cheque enclosed for the patio construction which I am delighted with. I am very impressed that everything went so smoothly and also with the quality of workmanship"




"Dear Susan,
Thanks again for the work on our garden.  Both Karen and I are very happy with the results

and our neighbours have commented both on the garden and on the lack of any disruption it has caused so if you could pass on our thanks to your team". 

Thanks again, Douglas


"The garden is fantastic. Thank you for all your hard work. I regularly take small walks in the middle of the day to take my mind of computers and work. Overall the space feels a lot bigger. I think the main thing is that its a safe environment now and its easy to maintain whereas before we had an unsafe (people slipping down slopes etc.) place which felt small and was in continuous need of maintenance. Feel free to come round and take a look if you want to get some pictures.

"Hi Susan,

 I would just like to thank you, and the team so much for my new garden! I absolutely love it, and can't wait to watch it grow.  The design works perfectly, the workmanship is really fantastic and budget was spot on".

Kindest regards,


We would like to thank you again for the fantastic transformation of our front garden. We are already using it and enjoying it much more than before and are looking forward to seeing it grow and develops as the plants establish. Your understanding and interpretation of what we wanted was spot on.

Thank you also for all the hard work you and your team put in – it was so exciting watching the progress made day by day.

We look forward to working with you again some time in the future when we eventually decide what to do with our back garden.

Kind regards
Karen and Douglas and
