“We are delighted with the result and on top of that have ENJOYED the process. It has been a very good experience all the way.”
“I don’t think there are enough superlatives to describe the work of Dorothy and Paul and his team. Through the whole process from initial conception and design to completion we have so enjoyed this incredible journey with Paul and Dorothy to create a sanctuary that far exceeded our expectations.”
‘Don’t let us make it tidy,’ said Mary anxiously. ‘It wouldn’t seem like a secret garden if it was tidy.’ (Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden)
“I approached many landscape gardeners about my project, but only Paul seemed to understand what was really needed….I wanted to make the front garden and entrance welcoming, and for the rear garden to retain a flavour of its spiritual heritage as a safe place (my shorthand for this was The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett).”
“Paul Etienne provided a full garden makeover including landscape design and construction, with a finish to a very high standard. The garden has now been transformed from a boring square space into a lovely cottage-style garden with interesting planting features, an internal irrigation system and a range of plants suitable for the space.”
“Paul and his team were recommended by our neighbour as we wanted to redo our garden and put up new fences surrounding it. We also contacted one other company but quickly decided that Paul and Etienne Gardens would be the first choice for us.”
“I have known Paul approximately four years – during which time he has executed a number of varying garden projects on our property.
“Paul is always a delight to work with. He is at all times open, friendly, prompt and efficient in all manner of engagement. He is an excellent collaborator – especially as it relates to how best to execute an idea, a garden or building plan – and how best to manage it financially.”
