How we work
Mark Whiting has been described as “one of the most innovative and creative designers currently working in the Balearics”. He has been designing beautiful Mediterranean gardens across Mallorca for over a decade. Being a creative and pragmatic designer, combined with his background as a Biologist, his gardens create impressive statements, whilst being practical, low maintenance and environmentally sustainable. Every design starts with a detailed understanding of the you and your requirements, whether it is designing a contemporary outdoor living space or the garden of a mountain finca. Inspiration for the design may be come from the architecture of your home, the colours and forms of the surrounding landscape or even your favourite artist. He has developed tried and tested reliable planting combinations that require less water and thrive in the particular micro-climates across the Balearic Islands. When designing architectural elements such as terraces, pools, lighting, pergolas, outdoor kitchens, sculptures and furniture, they have a clean simplicity with fine finishes. Every detail is considered, so that your outdoor space enhances your life. His extensive portfolio ranges from rustic Mediterranean gardens, 5 acre Lavender fields, contemporary country houses, town gardens to a new 300 bedroom coastal hotel.

Mark will source and supply plants for your garden even if you are not looking for a redesign. He can advise on ‘waterwise’ planting through his consultancy service, so you can modify your existing garden to a more sustainable and beautiful space.

complete outdoor design

Mark will meet with you to fully understand your lifestyle and outdoor space requirements. His role is then to apply these needs into the style, layout and design.

With your budget in mind, he will ensure your garden sits perfectly with the architecture, type and style of your property as well as fulfilling your requirements of the garden.

Once we have agreed a design, he will help you to find the ideal local contractor who will build the garden. If desired he will oversee the contractor and manage the project through to completion.

feature sourcing and design

A unique garden design often calls for an individual piece of furniture, planter or light fitting. Reclaimed oak tables, Corten steel light fittings and planters, outdoor saunas and water features have all been designed and commissioned. Always on the look out for unique reclaimed items the showroom also has a small selection on display.

our fees

Our initial consultation is always free of charge.

There are several stages in the process of developing a garden design. Each step incurs various fees and it is only possible to ascertain these once we have in mind the type of landscape you would like to create.

Contemporanium offer competitive rates for our work and can work to strict budgets.

Creating a magical space need not cost the earth.
