"Kate understood what we are aiming for and gave us excellent advice on the simplest and most cost-effective way of achieving it. She is knowledgeable and an excellent communicator and identified the plants we already had and advised on good native additions."
"Kate has done a wonderful job helping us establish a sustainable cottage garden at our home in Auchenflower. Fertilisers and chemicals have been replaced with plenty of horse poo, garden mate, mulch and interesting plants including from June's Plants at Yeronga. The garden is full of flowers, birds and native bees. Kate's knowledge and creative design provide a great mix for learning about sustainable cottage gardening, and I would highly recommend her workshops and design services. The garden consultation is a good place to start and excellent value for money."
"Inspiring consultation! Kate's practical advice and extensive knowledge of plants, conditions and techniques has provided ideas for both long- and short-term plans for my garden. Sustainable gardening hints on soil preparation, maintenance, propagation techniques and re-using existing plants in a more suitable location have given me insight into a huge number of things to do that will be fun, save heaps of money and achieve great results. I also loved the ideas for creating a texture-rich adventure garden for my children. Thanks so much Kate!!"
