the worlds worst Gardener !

I like simple & elegant


As the worlds worst Gardener, yes I killed my green thumb years ago...I have been asked to design the garden for one of my building design projects...even though I find this a greater challenge (house design is so much easier) I love that they have enough trust in me to design a beautiful garden ....

have a wonderful weekend ...I'm off to find my Australian Garden Index Book

  3. Hey - no one said you had to plant and look after what you design! We all believe in you. Specially if it's along the lines of your photos :-)

  4. I agree with Ange Cate - someone else can do the looking after! And I'm sure you'll do a beautiful job with the design. xx

  12. I love formal, elegant designs in gardens, but that's not always what people want when I am asked to help them with their gardens. My own garden is formal AND edible (edible landscaping).

    Designing garden is so much fun!

  23. Oh Cate - I love, love, LOVE your blog. Have just stumbled upon you and SO delighted that I did. Simple and elegant is the way forward. Love the pics. I was lucky enough to inherit a beautifully simple and elegant garden when I moved house recently, and I'm trying my best not to destroy it as I'm no gardener myself either! I like to joke that my skill lies in knowing a lovely one when I see it!
