KATE LE PAGE GARDEN DESIGN
We are a company built from a passionate gardening family with an obsession for plants and garden design.
Through dedication and patience you see a garden grow. Ive always loved being outdoors and one of my fondest memories growing up is working alongside my mother in our garden, this paved the way for my future to create beautiful spaces for people to enjoy with their family and friends.
Palm Springs on the Peninsula was the brief, an oasis to escape to when on holidays with everything at your fingertips, you can lock the gate and avoid the crowds, this resort style garden has it all.
Expansive pool with huge beach and spa, gym space including powder room and spa, tennis court and entertaining is covered with a wood fired pizza oven on the upper deck.
With a re-build of this beautiful home the client came to us wanting lots of open green space, areas to entertain, and a retreat for their three teenage children, we delivered.
The existing driveway took up the entire front garden. Once re-configured the garden took shape, from extensive lawns, front and rear entertainment areas, timber pergolas for flowering climbers to weave over..
Relaxed and contemporary, with plenty of screening from neighbouring properties was the brief.
This was achieved with plantings of pleached Waterhousea, timber baton screens, steel growing frames for espaliered citrus trees, and beautiful feature trees..
This brand-new home was built to accommodate a busy family of 6, therefore the outdoor area needed to be a place of low maintenance and relaxation.
Working alongside Masterplan Builders, a beautifully textured white tiled pool was installed which gets used all year round, a pergola/growing frame to support Virginia creeper..
A small space in need of a "planting make over" was the brief, but as the young children suggested, a pool would be nice too!
We restored an existing beautiful stone wall, and extended it to open up the rear garden. This become the inspiration for the ‘Tuscan’ pool design and outdoor entertaining area. A canopy of Maple trees helps this garden flow beautifully and elegantly.
A hands on gardening family with a solid brief that included perennial and culinary planting. Incorporating an area for the children to entertain, and most importantly a pool!
We worked closely with our clients to ensure we filled all aspects of this brief, and we are over the moon with the outcome and how much the family enjoy using this gorgeous garden. Filled with seasonal flowering plants..
Initial consultation is the key process in establishing a solid brief and relationship before planning your garden. Landscape consultations are not just for new gardens we also consult on rejuvenation and replanting gardens that are in need of a freshen up.
Once a solid brief is established we begin the process of design, bringing your outdoor oasis to life. From pools, tennis courts, hardscapes to softscapes we cover it all including irrigation and lighting plans.
Once the initial concept is decided on and base elements of the project are in place there is the finer details to consider. Concept drawing are then converted into detailed computer drawings to ensure everything fits and materials, plants, products are all listed.
Upon completion of your design we will supply a detailed quotation of the entire project to bring your botanical dream to life, our team are all qualified and courteous making the construction process a hassle free experience.
From a newly constructed landscape to an old garden needing a make over we work closely with our clients to fill the botanical gap.
"It has been a fantastic experience working with Kate to create our dream garden. Having completed a large home renovation, we were left with a blank canvas and didn’t know where to start. Kate guided us through the whole process from start to finish."
