Gossip about Eva
A collection of testimonials by our valued clients who are just like you!
“Eva gave a talk at Stafford Garden Club in August 2018. It was about the 5 things that you need to know for good garden design. Eva was generous with her knowledge and experience – she used easy-to-follow diagrams to show how to analyse what is needed, what’s wanted by the client and how to achieve a brilliant result with a mix of suitable plantings and useful hard surfaces.
It was refreshing to have a talk that was so problem-solving: occasionally we ‘pottering’ gardeners need to be alerted to factors such as eye-lines, shade issues, micro-climates, where heavy traffic is likely to require hard surfaces and (let’s be honest) realistic placement of appropriate plants. Eva tackled these and other issues with intelligence and good humour. The Stafford Garden Club has a different speaker every month and Eva’s illustrated and lively talk gathered many compliments from our members”

“We were looking for a landscape architect to design a garden for our dream home. We wanted the indoors to spill seamlessly into garden rooms, and to have a unique garden entrance. Eva was wonderful – she was patient, listened our ideas, and considered our like and dislikes of the plant world.
The result is an absolutely beautiful and thoughtfully designed garden, one which complements the style of our house, while also being suitable for our climate and lifestyle. Eva incorporated the elements we desired and advised us on dozens of other plants and features to include.
Her plans were comprehensive, with an extraordinary attention to detail. They most professionally presented, and were completed well ahead of schedule. We have no hesitation in recommending Eva to anyone keen to use a landscape architect.”
“Eva Porter completed an entire garden plan for our residential property on the Gold Coast. We were seeking not just a landscaper but a professional with a good eye for design and unique planting. Eva certainly filled this criteria and has completely impressed us with her creativity and careful thought into appropriate planting.
She has included our design ideas and suggestions discussed on her site visit and added many more of her own, providing us with an exciting task ahead to see our garden come to life. Our garden design was not only beautifully presented but included many plants in pots for our paved areas and furniture suggestions and placement for outdoor entertaining. Our ‘children’s garden’ is unique and colourful and our pool area will be lush, coastal and a place to rest and relax. Eva has exceeded our expectations and her service is worth every cent for a long term beautiful garden.”
“Eva designed a cottage garden for me in keeping with my heritage cottage with a lovely range of plant, lighting and seating suggestions, with some very clever fixes for a few difficult areas. Very happy with it!”
