About Me

Fiona ButtenshawI am passionate about helping people get the most from their gardens and work closely with Clients to help them create their dream gardens, whatever their preferred style, budget or size of garden.

Following a Degree in Civil Engineering and more than 6 years working in Civil Engineering, I decided to pursue a career involving my interest in gardening and art and retrained as a garden designer.  I achieved the RHS Certificate of Horticulture with Distinction and my Diploma in Garden Design from the Institute of Garden Design with Distinction.

I have now been designing gardens for more than 12 years with a wide range of experience from revamping a tired border to designing a 2 acre garden from a completely blank canvas.  My background in Civil Engineering enhances my Garden Design experience, particularly with regard to drainage issues and structures such as retaining walls.

I have also been involved with a local Charity, 'Watch us Grow' which does great work helping adults with additional support needs or with mental health problems to develop new skills, confidence and self esteem through gardening and environmental projects in their garden in Palacerigg Country Park in Cumbernauld and in the wider community.  I have also helped my local school, nursery and other community gardening projects and I have been a member of my local Allotments Association.

Glen Rosa Garden Design is based in Cumbernauld but covers Central Scotland and further afield.   Please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements and how I can help.
