It is a testament to Karen, that our friends and visitors always admire the layout of the “resort” courtyard and gardens, as well as the wonderful year round plant display. Gary and I have great pleasure in recommending Karen as a Landscape Designer, and are absolutely certain that she will work professionally and competently with future clients, as she has with us. We enjoyed working with Karen, and are thrilled with the end result.

Case Study 3
LANDSCAPE DESIGN CASE STUDY 3
Nicola and Glen approached Changing Spaces Landscape Design in January 2007 to create a fun outdoor environment for their children, to plant more natives and to provide lots of growing space for edible plants.
1 Nicola and Glen moved into a new house in a new suburb where the sloping section had been grassed and left.
2 There was no shelter and no privacy.
3 The paving outdoor living area was not large enough.
4 The internal fences had not been built to make the best use of space.
5 Levels were taken and low retaining walls designed to create a flat lawn area.
6 The internal fence was moved closer to the driveway to create an area for a raised vegetable garden and a meandering sloping path that the children love to play on.
7 A swing was installed within a planted area to reduce maintenance and make the play area a little more ‘mysterious.
8 The front entrance way has been planted up completely in natives. This has created privacy, added much more street appeal and eradicated lawn mowing.
‘It’s been over 2 years since Karen came up with our landscaping plan and we are so pleased with the outcome. Karen listened to what we had to say and incorporated our ideas into the plan. The front garden is easy to maintain, gives us more privacy and looks great! Our preschoolers and their friends love running around the backyard and we love the fact that it looks good and doesn’t require too much maintenance. Thanks Karen, you produced a great plan and have been friendly to deal with.’
