About us

Viridis Landscapes offers high-quality landscaping and garden design in Bath and the surrounding area. 

We understand the joy a beautiful outdoor space can bring and the need for it to fit into your lifestyle – it’s a place to escape, to entertain loved ones, to potter, to relax, or to admire from the kitchen window. From shaded summer sanctuaries to structural and striking winter havens, we strive to create gardens for our clients to fall in love with, all year-round. 

Our Director – Jemma Smallman

Our company is run by director Jemma Smallman, a well-qualified and passionate garden designer. 

Jemma has worked in gardens since her early twenties, where her natural flair and ambition lead to her quickly progressing to head gardener at Bath Garden Design. In this role, she managed a range of beautiful and prestigious sites, including two gardens for the Duchy of Cornwall, as well as large walled gardens and rectories, smaller contemporary-style gardens and countless one-off projects. 

Although Jemma loves being a part of the manual team and never shies away from hard work come rain or shine, she also became fascinated with the design process behind the scenes. As a result, she began assisting in design a few years into her career on many major projects, which allowed her to hone her craft and find her own unique style. Combining creativity and functionality in her work, Jemma regards garden design as a form of art. This transpires through her love of creating meticulous, hand-drawn plans, as opposed to the computer-generated designs so often seen today. By combining her skills, passions, and a desire to move into a more holistic role, she launched Viridis Landscapes in 2020.

Always striving to expand her knowledge, Jemma has achieved both level two and level three awards from the Royal Horticultural Society in Principles of Garden Planning, Construction and Planting. On top of this, she is currently pursuing a Garden Design Diploma at the esteemed KLC School of Design.
