Louise Wakeling is a garden designer and horticulturist based in Walkley, Sheffield.

She designs gardens large and small, from detached homes with a blank canvas to compact terraced courtyards, as well as shared and community garden projects.

Louise brings her expertise and creativity to design your perfect garden space. She takes great care to listen and understand exactly what you want from your garden and will then guide you through both creative and practical ideas to make your outside space into a place to enjoy for years to come.

She has a keen interest in horticulture and will select just the right combination of plants to achieve the look you want while ensuring they are suited to the location and conditions of your garden. Sustainability is at the heart of her design considerations, helping you to minimise your garden’s environmental impact.


Louise trained at Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC), being awarded diplomas with distinction in both garden design and horticulture.
