Robyn’s Emergency Front Yard Makeover

Robyn is a dedicated Primary School Teacher and mum. She takes pride in her home but has no spare time so her front garden just got away from her. Robyn’s garden was in terrible shape and desperately needed some TLC.

Robyn chose the Emergency Makeover as she needed the work done quickly. In one day we transformed the front of Robyn’s property into a presentable, tidy and lovely space. The garden soil was in poor shape so we simply moved around some of the existing plants knowing they would survive and to create more balance. Robyn loves colour and already had some interesting outdoor furniture. We decided to keep it and compliment the style with some new pots, plants and a rug.

This is what we managed to achieve:

  • weed removal
  • pruning of existing plants
  • transplanting of existing plants
  • mulching
  • cleaning of veranda, path and rock wall
  • entrance staging for 5 weeks (hire of plants, rug, decorative pots)
  • green waste removal
  • 5 maintenance visits

The total cost of Robyn’s Emergency Makeover was $1,450

The Results

I employed Christine to “resurrect” my front and back gardens. The back garden was particularly challenging-in very poor condition and extremely difficult to restore. Chris was persistent in finding a solution. I couldn’t be happier with the results! Both gardens look amazing and a pleasure to return home to every evening. The plants and pots she chose for my patio showed a flair for colour and design. Christine’s manner was always professional. She is personable, respectful and always on time. The consultation was quick and easy and nothing was too much trouble. It was a stress free experience (for me!) from beginning to end. I highly recommend Christine for her work as a gardener, designer and horticulturist.
