The moment I first saw Ros’s garden at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show in 2006 I knew she was the one that I wanted to design my garden when I eventually got “round to it”. There was just something about her style that resonated with me from day one. It was four years later that I finally was in a position to proceed and very much enjoyed working with Ros to come up with a design for my garden, she listened very carefully to what I wanted and I always felt that we were on the same page. She came up with three alternatives, all of which would’ve worked.
Just before we were due to start construction I was transferred overseas and plans went on hold. It was another three years before we were able to dust off the plans again, refresh them and actually turn my disaster into a dream garden. The finished product is just sensational and suits me to a “T”. I am out in it every day and just love how it draws me out of the house in all weather
I really enjoyed working with Ros and found her very responsive to any ideas that I had. We were always on the same page even if she did push me to the edge of my comfort zone on a few occasions! One of the things I love so much about my “designer garden” is the thought that has gone into the plant selection. There is always something flowering, all of the deciduous trees change color at a different time (and a different color) and by the time the last tree has dropped it leaves, the first one is getting new leaves. I could never have achieved any of this on my own.
Our experience with Ros was nothing short of pure excellence. She listened to our needs and understood our aesthetic and reflected it back into a design that not only truely enhanced the architecture but gave the garden a soul. It’s changing seasonal colours and shapes, continuously bring joy.
While out in my beautiful new front yard, an unknown driver pulled up and said ‘your garden is absolutely stunning – I have been watching its development and it is amazing’. What more can I say except thank you Ros for my living treasure. Your vision, expertise and wonderful manner are so appreciated.
Ros designed my back yard and everyday it gives me immense pleasure – it’s balanced, interesting, considered and I love its little surprises. My front yard, another Ros creation, is stylish, sympathetic to the location and there is a special purpose for every plant and feature – an artistic creation, which gives me so much pleasure.
I am a very happy and contented client, and to think that the gardens will only get better!
