Brown Earth was set up in 2002 by Claire Reading (PSGD Dip.) and is based in Perthshire, working throughout Scotland.  Claire uses her natural eye for design and intuitive use of plants and materials to consistently produce the highest quality garden design work for a variety of clients. Brown Earth Landscapes is proud of its fresh, innovative and elegant approach to garden design, making the most of the challenging climate to create gardens to enjoy all year round.

Claire has a wealth of experience from working on a Silver Medal winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2004 to creating the organic potager garden at The River Cafe in London and running Brown Earth as a busy garden design and build service in Edinburgh before moving to Perthshire with her family.

Great care is taken with each and every project ensuring a seamless service and, with a good base of contacts to draw from, that each project contract runs smoothly and efficiently.  Claire’s huge enthusiasm for her subject is infectious and she strives to make the process wholly enjoyable from the start to finish of each project.

Brown Earth undertakes a variety of projects from the design of private gardens and larger estates. While we no longer provide a garden build service, the years spent constructing gardens has provided invaluable experience which is applied to every job.
