For me, working on a design is like working on a piece of visual art, the only difference is the canvas. In place of paper or linen, in the case of Landscape Design, my canvas is bricks, stone, pavings, sleepers et al; and my paints are the plants, pots, and ornaments I use to create a visual thing of beauty.
It isn’t a coincidence Monet is considered a master gardener as well as a master painter. He created magic, mirth & beauty from flowers, grasses, rambling roses, and water features, just as wonderfully as he did with watercolours, oils, and canvas’ – for me it’s the same thing.
Now, it’s unlikely I will be working on anything quite as magnificent as Monet’s garden in Giverny; however, I like to think that the artist in me can visualise while the accountant can stay to budget and the mathematician can work out the dimensions… It helps to be a little wacky when it comes to visual art 🙂
I have had the privilege to work on some amazing properties & jobs; large and small, and I have enjoyed the process for each of them.
Thankfully, every single one of my clients has been thrilled with the end product; many of whom have given me referrals; most of whom have become friends.
Here are just a few of the reviews I’ve received:
“Visnja, was lovely to work with, on time, great ideas which were professionally presented and extremely thorough. Would highly recommend” – Carol Wandong
“Fantastic working with Visnja on landscaping ideas. Her knowledge and hard work finding solutions and options was awesome!” Tabatha – Oak Park
“I loved Visnja’s passion for gardening and practical ideas on how to use what I had while transforming my balcony into a little oasis without spending the earth on it. I’m excited for the development of my mostly edible garden. Thanks Visnja!” – Kate Ascotvale
“Knew exactly what we wanted and delivered as promised. Thanks so much” – Sarah Hampton East
“Visnja did an amazing job with my request – very prompt and efficient and had great communication. Would definitely hire again! Thanks very much for your help! Candice – Southbank Restaurant Courtyard garden.
“Visnja did such an amazing job of designing my courtyard that I hired her to complete the actual work. Since then I have referred her to others and have also hired her to re-do my front garden this Summer” – James Prahran
“Visnja was referred to us by a friend. Initially, she did a design & gave us a quote. We liked her idea, especially her solution to being overlooked by 2 sets of flats. She kept us up to date on everything; especially difficult during lockdown, & worked hard to remain on budget” – Patricia Prahran
“Visnja worked hard on creating something that would work with our lifestyle and our taste & has created a stunning, year-round garden that takes very little work to maintain” – Jo Sunbury
I often get new jobs through Airtasker & some of these quotes have come from there. If you would like to verify you can go to my Airtasker account HERE
I’m happy to create just the drawings & artist impression of what the design will look like, or source the plants & materials, or complete the entire job, from concept/design to completion. I have a dedicated Team of Tradespeople & labourers who are all just as motivated as me to create something beautiful, functional and lasting.
