‘We are simply delighted with our garden design which has exceeded our expectations on every level. We particularly loved that Renata understood the need for architectural structure and balance. The design process was easy and the plant and irrigation options recommended to us were well planned and responsible for our changing climate. We continuously receive compliments on our “beautiful garden” that looks wonderful every season of the year. Renata’s garden design has not only transformed our kitchen/living area into a peaceful room that overlooks a harmonic, relaxing green haven but is also accommodates the needs of a busy family with young children. Our guests often turn their backs to us and stare out to this peaceful space that has essentially created another entertaining room.

Renata was an absolute pleasure to work with. We would not hesitate to use her again or to recommend her services to anyone.’

‘After seeing Renata’s work through the local kindergarten, I had engaged Renata initially to landscape design my new residence. Renata is not only brilliant in her ideas and designs, but has a genuine passion and interest in getting the best result for her clients, from inception through to project completion. Nothing is too much trouble and even 18 months on, she still enquires as to how the design and plants are going! Subsequently I have engaged Renata to design my investment property garden and now my holiday residence. As a busy person myself, it is a pleasure to work with someone so capable and whom I know will achieve a wonderful result.’

‘My challenge to Renata was for a garden for the front of my house in Beaconsfield Parade which was modern and yet sat well with the traditional façade of the house, was low maintenance, and used plants that would tolerate the harsh conditions (poor soil, driving salt-laden winds and not a lot of sun) with minimal irrigation requirements. Renata has provided just that. Not only has the garden, completed in September 2007, survived a long, hot summer, it has thrived and continued to please without needing much attention. Importantly, the process was fun and hassle-fee, and Renata’s “after-sales service” has been excellent.’

‘Renata was a whiz – she listened to our requirements and designed a really beautiful functional garden that both complements and compliments our home from inside and out. She so capably met the challenges of drainage, varied levels and existing fencing issues along with our two-year old’s growing requirements, colour constraints and fixed dimensions for a train track! She was meticulous in her research, design, plans and documentation. All-in-all Renata was a joy to work with and I am delighted to highly recommend her.’

‘Simon & I want to thank Renata for the amazing job she did – We love nothing more than sitting outside with a coffee and admiring our new garden. Renata took into account our budget and the area we had to work with and we now have a drought friendly garden. Renata designed our garden perfectly, organised quotes from different landscapers and supervised the whole process. It was a pleasure to deal with her and we have no hesitation in recommending her to family and friends. We look forward to using Renata again when we landscape our front garden.’

‘Renata Fairhall is the ultimate professional. Having dealt with all manner of people in my recent renovation, Renata was a “breath of fresh air”. Nothing was a problem. Cost estimates were very accurate. She was able to reconcile very different ideas between my wife and me to come up with an amazing garden design. She was always available for further discussions and tips on how to best carry out every given task of what was quiet a large project. Renata has an incredible network of very skilled people to carry out all the work. From lawn installation to watering design to all the other bits and pieces. Renata has also sourced all the plants for us (in excess of 250) and not only has she picked each one, she also organised all the logistics around the delivery times to fit in with all the other tasks and the best planting season. As I am writing this testimonial I am overlooking a serene, tranquil, peaceful place that also turns into a basketball court, a soccer ground and a water fight battleground. My 2 daughters, my wife, our dog and the cat will all enjoy this creation for many years to come.’
