I can recommend Lisa Ellis Gardens. Ours was a small courtyard; we learned along the way that not all designers want to take these projects on! From the first contact with Lisa, however, we felt that the advice we received was relevant to our space. Lisa suggested things that we would not have thought of, but it always felt as though we were in control. The concept and design evolved in clearly distinct stages. The registered builder for the hard paving was excellent and the soft planting was also very well executed by Lisa Ellis Gardens. The result is that a space that was hot and unattractive has become an additional living area and an asset to our home. We are thrilled with the result and can recommend Lisa Ellis Gardens.

“Lisa and her team have transformed our much un-loved and under-utilised back deck and courtyard to an oasis of green. The house has been transformed with every room looking out to a canopy of greenery. We absolutely love the design that Lisa came up with and the tremendous care, skill and consideration with which her team installed the garden around our young family. We can’t stop asking ourselves why we didn’t do this 5 years ago!
The Lisa Ellis Gardens team has made the task seem simple with their prompt and confident advice and we now look forward to getting started on our backyard!”

“Our garden looks amazing and we are really happy with it. Lisa and her team were a pleasure to work with. The whole process was great – from the beginning when Lisa came out and shared her views and listened to what we wanted to achieve, through to the selection of plants.
The Lisa Ellis Gardens team has made the task seem simple with their prompt and confident advice and we now look forward to getting started on our backyard!”

“A friend of a friend had used Lisa Ellis gardens which is how we met up. It was meeting Lisa that just made it happen really. She could see that we are not gardeners but would enjoy an additional living space. We had used gardeners before and found some to be unreliable or others who were unable to give direction or suggestions to people who just wanted it done. There were a couple or restrictions relating to the back part of our block as there was a need for a storage shed and a palm tree that we couldn’t bear to get rid of. Lisa and her crew were able to think creatively and make adjustments, providing appropriate hard landscaping and planting.

The front space is green and fragrant all year round. We use our front veranda overlooking the garden just about every day.
Lisa is enthusiastic, her crew hardworking and all just so nice! They are patient with our barking Daschund and it just makes my day to come home and find that they have been. We just leave them to it and enjoy. We have been in our home for thirty years and are not really thinking of going anywhere else. We feel that Lisa Ellis Gardens understands our thinking and will continue to provide a service that suits us.”

“Simon and I have been very happy with the transformation of our front garden from a rather sad and barren patch of lawn bordered by a bland garden into a marvellous space which is fully planted with interesting and different plants that cleverly cohabit and provide a changing garden vista with the seasons. One of the special features of our garden is the maple walk which has transformed a disused strip of land on the south side of our house into a lovely area with beautiful maple trees under planted with hellebores, violets and other lovely plants.
In the design phase Lisa listened to our ideas spent time to get to know us and came up with a beautiful unique garden design that sits comfortably with our house and the streetscape. Her trades people were a pleasure to have on site and Lisa regularly kept in touch during the work to see that all was going smoothly. As the landscaping progressed, unexpected issues and requests to tweak the design were deftly handled and never too much trouble. Hard landscaping work was very professionally done and will last forever.
Lisa’s team of gardeners keep our garden looking lovely and we are looking forward to watching it grow and mature in the coming years.
Friends, neighbours and people passing often comment on our lovely garden design.”

“I have used Lisa Ellis Gardens for two projects over the last year. The first project was to provide us with more privacy in our backyard. I thought Lisa’s recommendation of using bamboo against our side fence was a great one despite my concerns about using this plant. The end result has been a wonderful lush look and the privacy we were after. The second project was a more extensive one and involved updating the front garden and the side garden at the back of the house. I loved all of Lisa and Floyd’s suggestions and went away and did my own research as to what and where they thought the plants should go. I asked for colour and symmetry and that is exactly what I got.
After these two projects, I am loving my new updated garden and have got much enjoyment from seeing it grow and thrive. I have found Lisa and her staff to be very courteous and knowledgeable at all times and would very happily recommend them for their skills and horticulture knowledge.”

“After recently extending my home l was left with a small barren courtyard space with full sun in Spring/Summer and no shade. The outlook from the back living room is through floor to ceiling glass doors and l knew it was important tocreate an area that would become a part of the living room as well as being a shaded outdoor room space that would be functional, contemporary, and enjoyable to be in.
Lisa Ellis Gardens has achieved this for me with clever use of decking, paving, drystone walls, laser cut screens and lush evergreen planting. With Lisa’s design aesthetic and ability the area now has been transformed into a garden that is unique and is so much more than l thought was achievable.
From initial consultation through to concept plans and working drawings Lisa’s knowledge, enthusiasm and genuine love of garden design and horticulture shone through. l was really impressed with her ability to design within the confines of such a small space and to create something that now seems so much larger and a pleasure to come home to.”
