At Terra Firma we are driven as a company by strong core values that are shared by the whole team

This reflects in how we operate as a company.
The most prominent of these are Beauty, Reliability, Respect and Excellence. We attribute our ongoing success to our commitment to these core values…

Beauty - We pay great attention to good quality design. We very much appreciate the health benefits and the beauty of nature and we wish to share this with our clients by providing a beautiful garden for your enjoyment and relaxation.

Reliability - It is important for us to demonstrate our integrity and trustworthiness to our clients. When we commit to a project we will turn up every day until the project is satisfactorily completed.

Respect - We respect the environment, we respect each other and we respect our clients. We take time to ensure we carry out our work in a tidy and efficient manner with the minimum waste or disturbance to our clients and their neighbours.  

Excellence - We really enjoy what we do and we love to do it well. From the start it has been our aim to be the very best garden design and landscaping company in Glasgow, and we take great pride in producing work of the highest quality and durability. We value our good reputation and work hard to maintain it.
