Most of us associate a garden with a place to enjoy during the long summer. For a large part of the year it’s easy to neglect our dark outdoor space. Award-winning garden designer Kirsty McLean from The Garden Design Company Scotland, designed and created a garden to be enjoyed all year round, day and night.

“It’s wonderful to have a garden that transforms at night time, giving you a delightful contrast to your ‘day garden’,” explains Kirsty. “By using responsible LED lighting, you can create two unique gardens in one.”

By having a garden that lights up at night, you can even enjoy your garden in the heart of the winter darkness. In addition to creating a feeling of outdoor living space, a night garden offers wonderful patterns, shapes and colours, all of which disappear again when the sun comes out.

Background on Kirsty McLean
Inspired by her rural roots and her family’s interest in horticulture and the arts, The Garden Design Company Scotland was created by Kirsty McLean, thirteen years ago. Award-winning garden designer Kirsty is also guest designer for Beechgrove Garden, BBC Scotland’s longest running gardening programme of over 35 years produced by Tern TV.

A smaller number also gets distributed to IFA's and brokers across the central belt.
