TESTIMONIAL  MARK KEILY

Early in 2014 we purchased our home in Cherrybrook. A beautiful two story Australian colonial style with a welcoming outlook and bush garden at the front. Unusually, our major vehicle and visitor access was from the rear and our backyard, (comprising of a rusty single carport, rambling stairs and cottage style garden),  was quite haphazard  and impractical; no doubt the result of a landscape gardener's effort from 20 years ago. The stairs for example followed no standard dimensions and were an accident waiting to happen. Drainage was a problem and we often felt we lived in a lake after heavy rain. There was no covered outdoor entertainment and the entire area required a major rework applying an innovative approach. This was well beyond the remit of your average back yard landscaper using a hired dingo!

 

We approached a few professional designers and count our blessings that we connected with Angela from Urban and Rural Design. Angela impressed us with her ability to think out of the box, be sympathetic to the style of house and consider the environmental impact when putting various options to us before proceeding with the work. With an eye towards aesthetics, practically, construction cost, and plant selection she has worked with us solidly over 18 months to draw the various components together into a cohesive whole.

 

We selected plants, tiles, colours and textures, design approaches, and engaged various contractors and suppliers with her watchful eye and advice. Whatever we threw at her seemed to be no problem at all, and Angela always came up with options contained in her pearls of wisdom for us to contemplate. Discussions were often accompanied by a coffee at our local cafe and it did not take long for us to realise that Angela had shifted from a trusted advisor to become more like a family friend. Angela is very professional and with her great sense of humour she brings an authentic and genuine approach to her work. This characteristic is shared  with the teams of like-minded, professional, trusted people she introduced us to.

 

We have no intention of embarking on a total backyard project again, however, if we ever did we would go straight to Angela. We genuinely recommend Angela from Urban and Rural Design.
