Miramonte Courtyard (click for photos)

Kerrie Griffin-Moore was referred to me by a builder who was renovating a couple of townhouse units in which I live. The initial meeting was with my parents with a brief to simply “gut” the backyards and redesign with a minimalist low maintenance space.

Several weeks later I met Kerrie who had brought a detailed plan, incorporating stone paved courtyards, retaining walls, a lightweight rendered dividing fence and side gates and a structured plant layout on irrigation lines. Kerrie had also worked out I wasn’t a gardener and brought plant tickets so I could see the selections. It was exactly what I wanted and there were no changes !! – she listened, understood, advised and created the design.

Kerrie is very passionate in her work and one couldn’t help to be impressed with how particular she is in sourcing the materials which included imported stone pavers, pots and the garden plants. Kerrie also manages her contractors, who were all courteous and very tidy, with regular visits and keeping me fully informed as work progressed – which is most appreciative if you are not at home.

And then there were the “little things” along the way that Kerrie organised which all helped to make the job complete – like the wall mounted clothes line, wider paths for the bins, roofing the pergola and garden lighting to enhance the space in the evenings.

As the backyards were being completed and I could see the results, I asked Kerrie to do a design brief for the front garden areas. Several years ago these areas were well manicured lawns but with water restrictions had become simply grass and dirt. I wanted a low maintenance, water-wise garden with plants which would “soften” and blend with the brick townhouses.

Kerrie’s design was a layered structure with several types of plants. The contractors dug out the front areas and replaced the soil and irrigation lines, completing the planting out just before the autumn rains this year.

We are now into spring and both the front and back gardens have flourished.
It is now a pleasure to have the best garden in the street !!
I wanted a stunning and quality “wow” and I have, thank-you Kerrie.

I am pleased to recommend Kerrie. She is professional, has a very personable nature and is so passionate in her work.

"It gives me great pleasure to write this testimonial for Kerrie Griffin-Moore who transformed my strong ideas for my courtyard into an elegant reality. At our first consultation I sensed that she was a practical gardener with an artistic flair and a passion for creating a garden that I wanted.

Having lived in Asia for many years, I wanted the courtyard to reflect the subtle influences of Japan and China in an Adelaide environment. Kerrie listened very carefully to what I wanted and quickly abandoned any ideas of huge stainless steel BBQs! All the features I wanted were included in her first plan and i am delighted with her choice of plants. She correctly deduced that I am not a gardener and presented me with plants that I will be able to manage.

Kerrie worked within my budget which took into account the cost of espaliered trees and plants that are past the seedling stage which is a significant consideration. She seems to have assembled a good team of contractors; the one who was responsible for the paving and irrigation was particularly thorough, courteous, neat and tidy. I appreciated the way Kerrie responded to any of my concerns and kept me well informed of what and whom to expect almost on a Daily basis.

Above all, Kerrie is a great source of information; she is pleasant and professional, enthusiastic and fun to work with. Creating my courtyard was a very pleasant experience and I am delighted with the exciting results.

Anne-Marie lives in her courtyard,  which is located in Firle, South Australia. Anne-Marie is happy to talk to prospective clients and show them what we created together, by appointment only!"
