Colonel Light Gardens

Flagstaff Hill



Torrens Park

Deb recently designed our front and side garden. We were rapt with the design and can’t wait to see it completed. Deb spent time listening to our thoughts about the space, what we liked and asked lots of questions. She also got to know how we might use the space. She researched into the history of our area and considered everything in her design. We realised what a complex process garden designing is and felt she had great experience to design ours.
We would highly recommend Deb and know she will support us in any way to complete our dream garden.

Colonel Light Gardens

We engaged Deb from Ladybird Garden Design to design our front garden and we could not be more thrilled with Deb’s knowledge, professionalism and approach to designing something that we truly love. Deb was instrumental in recommending and sourcing plants and explaining to us each step of the way what would work best and how the design would come together. Deb also used her knowledge to recommend a landscaper that also did an outstanding job. We would strongly recommend Deb from Ladybird Garden Design to anyone wanting a truly beautiful garden!

After discussing our garden likes and dislikes, Deb produced the ideal design for us. It fulfilled our criteria, and inspired us to create. Her planting lists have been really valuable, but the real strength is the plan. It provided us with the structure, including an extra ‘zing’ that we hadn’t anticipated, that has turned our dull backyard into a place of inspiration and relaxation.
