I design & create personal healing gardens, memorial/remembrance gardens & theme gardens. Healing gardens can put you back in touch with your truth, joy, love and a time when you felt peaceful, free, well, whole, safe and secure.
It is especially therapeutic for adults and children alike to get their hands in the soil, it is very grounding and does have great benefits to our well-being.
These gardens offer you a sanctuary in which you can retreat and replenish your mind, body and soul & receive the healing benefits that come from tending and being in your sacred space.
I will create for you a well-designed sanctuary garden that offers a personal setting for the home that complements and enhances the architecture. A sacred space that is an extension of your living areas and requires planning, structure, flow and balancing the practical needs with the desired aesthetics of the individual or family it is intended for and it is value adding to your lifestyle and home.
It is important that the garden we live in becomes our sanctuary, a place for recreation and reflection, outdoor rooms that are functional, aesthetic pleasing & inviting - our sacred spaces. I will listen to your thoughts, ideas, and feelings around what this means for you and work with you to create your personal sanctuary garden. It can be what ever you want or need it to be! It can offer you many benefits, be called many names and can take many different forms. It may include a space to meditate in, with an altar that has on it a collection of your own special symbols.
I am a passionate designer, horticulturalist & gardener who has learnt nature is our teacher. It cares for and nurtures us. It teaches us of the cycles of life and working with the seasons.
My passion & knowledge for creating gardens is based on the wisdom that comes from sitting with, embracing and enhancing those natural elements that bring peace into our home environment.
Creating a garden that includes all the elements of earth, wind, water, fire, wood and metal & is an opportunity to express who you are. These gardens are an opportunity to create a productive garden that offers you organic self-sufficiency, with non-dig raised garden beds, suitable for crop rotation and companion planting techniques. This can be creatively carried out in a family or community garden that feeds the gardeners on many levels.
These gardens offer us a way to connect with ourselves, the earth, Mother Nature and other souls; it encourages individuals to communicate and share of themselves in a positive and productive manner.
In today’s climate, no matter what style, size or feel of garden you have or desire, there is an urgent need for practicing environmentally conscious gardening techniques. We can have our haven, whilst respecting the need to create gardens that are water efficient and climate compatible. They offers us another opportunity to make a difference by recycling gray water, mulching, recycling garden refuge and working this organic matter back into the soil, we nurture our part of the planet, in a meaningful way.
When we consciously implement these practices and we share our experiences and results with others, we continue to nurture others and our spirit. Using recycled materials to construct our sacred spaces and the features in it, is not only a way to express our individual creativity, it will also supports our limited resources.
