Leonie’s course was just wonderful. It got me dreaming up my space in the most unexpected ways and I now have a plan for the next steps. I’m so excited to get my wild space started!
I LOVE my Garden essence design package. It is fill of so many personal ideas for my family and I. The best part is that now that we’re starting, bit by bit to realise the design, we can actually enjoy all those moments in the garden which we had hoped for. Amazing!
Leonie’s design session was the perfect thing to get me started. I needed help with layouts because we had a landscaper coming in to do a patio and Leonie helped us work out the layout elegantly and beautifully. Thanks so much!
My garden was a dreary empty bit of lawn and Leonie’s 1- on1 planting consultation helped us decide on a planting scheme. The list of suggested plants was so helpful and we’ve started planting up many of the amazing choices! Thanks Leonie.
