Hi! I´m Sari Lampinen, a 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.
I have worked as a garden designer and an entrepreneur in Puksipuu for over 14 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 have chosen a collection of high quality products to complement your garden. You can see part of the collection in my online store PuksipuuShop, where the products have been categorised by their style. Rest of the products are project items.
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.
