About Deb

My passion is to create a unique space for each client, one that meets their requirements and desires whilst reflecting their personal style.

DESIGNING GARDENS SINCE 2003

Holding formal qualifications in horticulture and garden design, Deb has over 15 years of experience in garden design ranging in size from small courtyards to rural acreages. Collaborating with her clients, Deb strives to design outdoor areas that are not only beautiful, but functional and provide ongoing enjoyment throughout all seasons.
Deb’s clients are often time poor and require a stylish outdoor space that doesn’t require a large time commitment to maintain. Deb ensures that all clients feel comfortable in their garden and are able to enjoy it from many perspectives throughout all seasons. Often people are environmentally aware and looking for water-wise solutions, along with features such as productive plants, vegetable gardens and rainwater harvesting. Deb’s passion is to create a unique space for each client, one that meets their requirements and desires whilst reflecting their personal style.
Working together to create the perfect design for your garden is an exciting process that should not be rushed! It is ideal to start the planning process in summer as this allows the time necessary to formalise a design and to complete any hard landscaping by autumn. Autumn is prime planting season in Adelaide as this allows the plants to settle in over the winter and start to really put some growth on in spring. Winter is also a good planning time, especially in the cooler areas where spring planting avoids the risk of frost damage to new plants.
