During and initial consult I worked with Ann to create an orchard and path design directly on-site. We used hoses, timber, bamboo and stones to trial alternative layouts. We settled on a series of curved beds containing fruit trees and companion and useful herbs rippling out from the main view point of the house.
Thank you so much for your work here on Friday – I feel really excited by the layout & plans. I really appreciated your efforts to ensure I heard you clearly & that you listened so well to what I wanted & together we got to a satisfying result. Now there’s the actual creation!
cheers & thanks, Ann.”

cheers Ann.” Waikauaiti, February 2013.
