"Transformation of A Boring Space Into A Garden "

I received this email today from a client who is pleased with her landscape design almost a year later:
"I can't say enough about Teresa Watkins and her amazing creativity. When we met to discuss my frustration with creating a beautiful space along our lakefront, Teresa has some thoughts but mostly she spent time listening to me describe gardens I enjoyed visiting.  She took several photos and spent a great deal of time studying the space I had in mind for my new garden.  When she returned with a plan, I was amazed.

Since my husband and I enjoy gardening, we chose to take Teresa's plan and gradually create Teresa's vision on our own.  We added soil, we raked and killed weeds and planted according to Teresa's plan.  The transformation from a boring space to a park-like setting has not only given us the pleasure of a beautiful space to admire; but neighbors have actually left notes at my door thanking me for the garden.  One neighbor said, 'Its the highlight of my morning walk.'  Thank you, Teresa for making me look so good."

I love when I hear compliments like Violet's because I know that I've accomplished what they wanted and continue to appreciate. It's so enervating to see my clients with the landscapes of their dreams that are not only beautiful but are water conserving and not a lot of post-installation aftercare needed. That's the secret to great landscapes: Proper design and correct installation. What do you think of Violet's and her husband's hard work with their lakefront park?
