Landscape Design – Full Implementation
One of the older Moonhole houses required a full Landscape Design and Implementation. The project was split into two phases, Phase One included a full landscape design for the gardens surrounding the main house, pool and patio areas, with dry stone walls being placed where necessary and all areas fully planted
The scope of the design was to incorporate as much year round colour as possible while using the majority of locally sourced plants to give it an authentic look and feel. Phase Two was to build an extension to the house and gardens, which is planned for the future. Plans for Phase One were drawn up adn agreed with the owner:
The next step was to clear the ground, ready for the garden design to be implemented:
And then the walls were added, steps and planting areas laid out and the design begin to takes shape. Once the layout is established, the planting starts. The images below are a selection of pictures taken shortly after the original planting was completed.
To see how the garden developed after six months.
I have met Michelle in 2006 while studying landscape design at the New York Botanical Garden. After a few classes together, our relationship evolved from colleagues to close acquaintances. Michelle is a warm person, friendly, qualities that are a must for a landscape designer. My recommendation is to hire Michelle because she is going to design your dream garden. She is not just going to add the plants from the master plan. Michelle is going to communicate with you at every step, every change (I know for sure that changes will be made because I have been in this field for more than 10 years).
I was working with Michelle for two seasons on urban landscape installations and maintenance in New York City. Michelle is a very creative and responsible person, who was always on time and ready to work. She had a positive attitude towards her colleagues and clients. She handled her job well, weather as a team member, team leader, or in the office. I would highly recommend her as a perfect candidate to handle any garden services, including design, installation, and maintenance
We were and are impressed by Ms. Lulley’s responsible and professional attitude and work habits. She walked my wife and I through the steps necessary to first design and then plant a magnificent garden. The garden, along with ornamental stone work was completed on time and on budget . The results were spectacular and still stand out seven years later. Our house is one of the most photographed spots on Bequia because of the beauty and design of Ms. Lulley’s garden. The bottom line is that I can give Michelle Lulley the highest recommendation possible
