Designing Elegant Modern Gardens, Scandinavian Garden Design with simplicity and delicacy

Scandinavian garden design at its finest!

Zetterman Garden Design creates inspiring gardens and landscapes with integrity and quality, through a strong Scandinavian design ethos. Simplicity, functionality and delicacy are central words in our creations. Gardens are always cared for, to be in harmony with the surrounding landscape, and to have a clear connection to the architecture of the property. We value gardens and landscape as one of the most important spaces for people to thrive, and always plan gardens as an integrated part of a sustainable future.

Our work ranges from intimate urban gardens to spectacular landscapes in the country, from residential gardens and commercial outdoor spaces. We carry out work in Scandinavia, as well as overseas, with projects in Spain, UK, Switzerland and France to name a few.

Our work throughout Sweden spans over a vast geographical area; from coastal regions in archipelagos, to forestry countryside, to sandy soils in the south, from rural country gardens to urban cityscapes. Working with sometimes harsh environments and distinct seasonal changes, we have extensive knowledge and sensitivity to how gardens change over time and the complexity of seasonal impact, to create inspiring long-lasting gardens.

The design ethos that guides out practice, characterized by functionality and simplicity follows though both in the hard and soft landscaping. Zetterman Garden Design works closely with a network of professionals; architects, property developers, nurseries, craftsmen and artists, with the vision to create sustainable landscapes, with a positive contribution to future generations.

We look forward to many more exciting opportunities in Scandinavia as well as overseas, for a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing future. Requests from all over the world are welcome.

“Gardens and landscapes can be breathtakingly beautiful and exciting, constantly changing character and display endless colour and life if you let them. My aim is to help you find the right solution for your desires and requirements to produce a coherent, unique design. With my trained eye I see details, interlinking patterns as well as the spaces as a solid unit. I face every garden and challenge with enthusiasm and excitement and give your garden all the attention that it deserves to bring out the best.”
