Hi! I´m Sari Lampinen MSGD, Garden Designer.

A Garden Designer describes exactly what I do best – I design gardens to help YOU to enjoy your garden every day!


1. Garden design – whole package from a garden designer. Genuinely.

You dream of a garden where to relax, spent time with your friends and family and maybe grow some herbs or berries full of vitamins. As a garden designer I help you to make your dream a reality and design a garden that you enjoy and that feels like ´home´.

2. Support, ideas and solutions

Maybe you´ve got a lot of ideas, but you have not yet figured out how to put it all together. You need a professional to help you to create an entity, consults in construction and helps choosing the planting. I´m here to help you whterher you need a consultaion visit or a complete garden design.

3. Reliability

I have worked as a garden designer and an entrepreneur in Puksipuu for over 15 years. You might have also read about my ideas and solutions that I have created in garden magazines such as Kotipuutarha and Viherpiha over the years. My passion is garden design and giving you solutions to enjoy your garden more!

Products for your garden...

My mission does not end in designing. I can complement the garden design with a collection of high-quality products. Between 2014 and 2023, I had an online store, PuksipuuShop. Nowadays, the products are project items and delivered straight to the design clients.

Press, columns...

If it has something to do with garden design, I´m happy to be involved in. I have written lots of articles about gardens and garden design. I also was a garden design columnist in Kotipuutarha gardening magazine for over three years.

In 2017 I was writing and drawing a monthly 3 page series of garden design and solutions for home gardens in Viherpiha magazine, the biggest garden magazine in Scandinavia.

Since 2017 I have been answering questions sent by Viherpiha readers as a garden design expert of the magazine.

Training, workshops, lectures...

I have shared ideas and coached home gardeners on my Garden Design Stories website since 2020. The first online course was released in spring 2023.

I have also been lecturing as a representative of The Society of Landscape Designers / Finland about garden design, for example, in garden events in Marketta Park, Espoo, in 2017-2018.

I have taught garden and planting design in popular courses and workshops in Järvenpään Opisto from 2012 to 2014.
