She has a great design eye!

Emma designed and oversaw the construction of our rear and side garden as well as a separate deck area, in Williamstown late last year. She has a great design eye, and was quickly able to come up with a design that we thought would work really well for us (including an area around a new pool).
She was equally as good on plant selection, and has such extensive knowledge here we just let her go and choose! The construction team she recommended and then oversaw were excellent, we couldn’t have had a nicer team of guys here around an incredibly busy and sometimes stressful time.
The garden has been in a few months now and we are loving seeing it grow and develop into Emma’s vision – we are incredibly happy with it and will definitely be using Emma and her team again for our front garden when that time comes.

A delight to meet with on every occasion

Emma provided an excellent service from start to finish. Through our discussions she heard my concerns regarding ongoing maintenance and water conservation, and adapted our design to meet these concerns.

She was very approachable and a delight to meet with on every occasion. It was fabulous to have her help with the planting and showed her commitment to the very end of the project.

I have since recommended Emma to friends and would be happy to chat to anyone who was hoping to engage her services. She was a delight to work with a clearly a passionate designed and person.
