Our large urban hillside property had become too much for us to manage. Rather than have to sell up, because of our health issues and move to a flat section, or pay someone to do our garden, we called on Sue for advice. We wanted new retaining walls and paths, widened steps with handrails, lighting, raised vegetable gardens, a berry garden, new areas for shrubs, flowers and fruit trees, a garden shed, a wood shed, a porch running the full width of the house …… and a large paved area. This was a job that couldn’t be done piecemeal : it involved major earthworks, many different contractors and, of course, the necessary building permits. Sue came up with a plan that met all our requirements and more. She managed the project efficiently for us, relieving us of a lot of stress. We had several exciting months seeing the plan materialise and, thanks to Sue’s sourcing of hundreds of plants for us, we now have a productive and attractive garden that is a pleasure to work in and easy to maintain. What better tribute to Sue’s design talents than my husband’s comment `It makes me want to live longer to enjoy it’. Sue is very practical, knowledgeable and reliable and has a great working relationship with all her tradespeople. We would recommend her highly for any landscape design projects.
