Below are testimonials from just some of the satisfied clients of Caroline Wesseling Landscapes.

 

 Brebner Residence and Townhouse

We have had two gardens designed and installed by Caroline. One was a full garden and one for a small townhouse courtyard. We found Caroline a pleasure to deal with. For our first (and large garden) she heard what we wanted, worked within our budget and the existing structures of the garden, the resulting design exceeded expectations and showed great imagination. I had wanted planting up at the street front and Mike wanted a fence or wall, very cleverly Caroline came up with a design that gave us both. We did much of the heavy work and then had Caroline's team installed the plants for us. The garden was a huge success. We even had people come in off the street to ask about aspects of the design. A number of years later we sold this property and without question the garden was a main feature that helped us get a great price for our house. 

So there was no hesitation on our part, when we moved into our new townhouse we contacted Caroline to help us organise our courtyard. Once again we are delighted with the finished result, Caroline's design worked really well in our limited space and we now have an out door room we love to use. Caroline's team of willing workers built the seats and planter boxers and the installed the new plants. I felt completely safe leaving them on my property while we were at work. I have found Caroline to be a true professional and at the same time she has a friendly approachable manner, she kept us well informed at all stages and we had an excellent understanding of what was happening at all stages. 

I would highly recommend Caroline and all her team. After years of DIY it was wonderful to have a job done for us and a job done well.

Donaldson Garden Morvern Rd Epsom

Caroline designed our garden from scratch and we have been delighted with the result. She took the "jungle" that we did have and made it into a manageable and elegant garden in keeping with both the style of our house and our busy, but child-filled, lives.  Caroline's team keep the garden looking good with monthly maintenance and we continually get comments on how nice the garden looks even five years on.

Hubbard Townhouse Garden, One Tree Hill 

Our mother recently moved into a retirement home so her townhouse needed to be put on the market. Once the interior of the townhouse had been updated we realised how tired and old fashioned the garden looked.

Caroline was able to immediately see what was needed to update the garden in keeping with the architecture of the house and within a short space of time put together a plan for the transformation of the old garden.

The design was very cost effective and included a contemporary layout keeping trees and plants that could still enhance the garden with the addition of new vibrant plants, a new ready lawn and larger patio for outdoor entertaining.

Caroline was sympathetic to the need to keep the budget low while still having the garden give the maximum impact for the sale of the property. We were able to leave Caroline to organise contractors and provide a team of gardeners to clear and plant the new garden giving us time to concentrate on other jobs that needed doing before the real estate agents took over.

The wonderful new garden was the final finishing touch to the up date of the property. This is the second garden project that Caroline has managed for us. In each case the projects have been completed within budget and the results have far exceeded our expectations.

Schwarzkopf Garden, Ellerslie Flower Show 

We briefed Caroline Wesseling to design a garden against our client's specific objective for this year's Ellerslie Flower Show. The standard of her presentation was outstanding, her design and support material clearly showed her thinking and interpretation of our brief. Caroline's design was selected over other designs as it had a clear association with our target audience and overall strong brand connections. Caroline is very professional, reliable, well-organised and very talented!

Naish Family Garden, Kohimarama

Our large old overgrown garden required a complete transformation and design. 

 The plan Caroline came up with certainly achieved that.  We required a design that included outdoor eating areas, leisure areas and areas where functional utility was the priority. 

 We also wanted a water feature.  There were a number of challenges with the site such as incorporating existing mature trees, multiple levels and exposed tree roots to name a few.  These were considered carefully and we ended up with a garden plan that dealt with these aspects well while still meeting our brief.  We now have a garden that the entire family enjoys and receives many favourable comments from visitors.

Caroline was instrumental in transforming our garden and for interpreting the style and feel we wanted. She came up with some fantastic ideas for areas we could not resolve, which has made all the difference to the flow of the garden.  The outcome is a garden that is easy to maintain, lovely to look at and a pleasure to be in.

Paterson Garden, Epsom, 

Following the purchase of our current home in Hollywood Ave, Epsom, we approached Caroline Wesseling to produce a plan for a complete new garden and patio design for the rear of the property. We were not satisfied with the way the garden had been designed by the builder.

That plan called for a complex water feature and new paving concepts in addition to the garden design itself.

Caroline produced a design very quickly, and completed the garden construction promptly, which she also arranged with a third party contractor.

The finished design is exactly what we envisaged from the plan; - it was completed on time and on budget.

Caroline Wesseling has the unique skill, of being able to provide a “one stop shop” concept in garden design and implementation, produces a value for money quality product, and is a pleasure to deal with.

Our satisfaction with her work is evidenced by the fact that we have arranged with her to maintain the garden over the last two years.

We would recommend Caroline Wesseling to you as a competent designer and builder of excellent gardens who is a pleasure to deal with.

Oldham Garden, Half Moon Bay 

 

After completing our new home, we approached Caroline – on recommendation from our architect Bart Meo – to prepare plans for layout and plant selection for the new garden. We discussed a very simple plan that complimented our modern home beautifully and fitted well with our lifestyle (and grandchildren). Caroline was able to interpret our ideas and recommend alternatives. We are extremely happy with the finished result.

 

We found her very efficient and helpful and all tasks were carried out with a minimum of fuss.

Dianne and Merv Oldham

Woodgers Way, Howick 

Wow, what a difference, we are delighted with our new garden. We had visited a friend’s garden that Caroline had designed and were so impressed that we asked her to design our new garden. Caroline came to our house, took pictures walked around and took the time to listen to what we wanted. She then presented us with a plan that looked great. It had pictures of the plants along with a plan of where they all went.

She then organised everything from ordering the plants, to soil preparation and then on to planting everything. We are so pleased with the end result. Caroline is very approachable and professional and the whole process went along effortlessly on our part.

We love our new garden and are looking forward to enjoying it over the summer.

Caroline,

Many thanks for the garden. Sabine was very surprised and delighted to find the garden in such fine shape when she returned from Aussie. Your team did a great job. It will save Sabine (and me!) much time, that we can better enjoy something more pleasurable instead!
