Landscape Design Adelaide - Vivid Spaces


We just wanted to let you know how great our garden and landscaping is looking one year on. I have been meaning to send an email for ages to let you know how happy we are with our final result.  I am so glad you talked us into replacing the old overgown lily pillies with the new trees.  Your vision was spot on and I love the walls that match the house. And there is colour in the garden all year around.

It has made our house look as majestic as it should have been looking.

"I have been fortunate to have worked with Lesli Hewett of Vivid Spaces over the last 10 years on several garden designs which have complemented my home and development projects.
Lesli is quick to interpret my needs and designs the garden space in a simple format and then a 3d view to allow an easy visualisation of her design concepts..
From a traditional garden to amazing creative designs Lesli is up to date with latest innovations, new materials and finishes that can assist in giving your garden an individual quality and the edge that makes her garden designs stand the test of time. I would highly recommend that you take the journey with Lesli from first consult to completed project, the space created for you will be an ongoing enjoyment.

"Not only does Lesli have a wonderful sense of style and a comprehensive knowledge of garden design/implementation but she is also an absolute pleasure to work with. We felt like we had known her for years not that we had just met. Her work was very professional, timely and of the highest quality. The results exceeded our expectations and we were absolutely delighted. We would have no hesitation recommending Lesli as we already have and will definitely work with her again on any future projects."

"Lesli responded quickly with the exact ‘feel’ we wanted: she's great at extracting the information required and 'reading between the lines'. Lesli developed a range of striking design elements that showed her creative talent in tandem with practical problem solving. We approved her design without changes. The landscaping and planting was conducted with speed and efficiency, and the result is an elegant, distinctive (and low-maintenance) garden—a pleasure in all seasons. We also really appreciated Lesli's clarity when providing the works and payment schedule. We were able to relax and be confident that there were never any 'nasty surprises'!"

"Vivid spaces Lesli Hewett completed our two courtyard gardens some 3 years ago. Lesli was very creative, professional and provided an excellent service. She had the ability to listen to our ideas and provide a creative and exciting set of concept plans. We were  quickly able to agree on the approach. Lesli  provided diligent  support overseeing the building of our gardens expecting a very high standard of work. We have no hesitation in recommending her services."

'I really enjoyed working with Lesli and found her design for my garden to be very innovative, especially as she had a very small area to work with.  She managed to create a magnificent garden in the back area of my home.  The brief must have been somewhat confusing for her as I thought I wanted so many elements to the garden.  She was able to explain the advantages of what she had suggested and was sensitive to my requirements.  So many of my friends have been amazed at the complete transformation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lesli, and would definitely love to work with Lesli again on any further projects."

Kathy Orfanos

"We've worked with Lesli three times now. Twice in our last home - including prepping it for sale - and now in our new home. If we decide to move again, we'll be on the phone!

I hope that's an indication of how much we've enjoyed Lesli's ideas and concepts.

Lesli brings not only an expert understanding of design, but a realistic appreciation of budget, the requirements of a busy and growing family and vague concepts from homeowners, like "We want it to look lush".

We loved Lesli's design and are still thrilled every time we look out over our back yard."

Stephen Halliday and Victoria Purman

Lesli designed an extensive formal front garden for us 10 years ago. Since then we have worked together on the more contemporary areas in the rear garden incorporating lifestyle areas such as pool, tennis court, and alfresco entertaining. Seasonal consultations have been enjoyable and kept the garden up to date. It is a pleasure to work with her and I would be happy to recommend her.

"We downsized from a large home on a large block with lovely well kept gardens to a courtyard home. Although much smaller by comparison we needed a backyard garden which was interesting, looked spacious and covered our needs. This is where Lesli's expertise shone through. We had an initial consultation where Lesli listened to our needs, our likes and our dislikes....  We have a spacious paved area for the grandchildren to play, a seating area for drinking coffee or quiet reflection, interesting corners, a couple of feature areas plus garden area. We have had so many favourable comments about how different our back garden is to the normal courtyard home and we love being able to sit on the deck and enjoy looking over it. We would recommend Lesli and Vivid Spaces to anyone. Lesli is easy to relate to, listens to you and looks outside the square when designing your garden.

"Excellent experience -from concept to completion working with Vivid Spaces provided us with a unique personalised garden– we are now enjoying the result!"

Scott and Jody Selby

"We were one of Lesli's first customers in 1994??? when she helped us with the redesign of our cottage garden. Last year we asked Lesli to assist us in planning a revised backyard to create our new Al fresco area. We are extremely pleased with the results. It certainly gives us great pleasure.
It is easy to maintain, paving ideas worked well, arrangement of pots was excellent and her decor ideas to improve the area using lightweight fencing contributed significantly. The plants she sourced were excellent. Thanks Lesli for your help and guidance. We would be happy to recommend you to others.

Jo and Glen Parkinson

"Lesli and her team were responsible for the complete revamp of our front garden in 2008 and our back garden in 2011. My husband and I are not gardeners and needed someone who could create beautiful, low maintenance and water efficient gardens which would meet our changing needs. We could not be happier with the final result and with the time and care Lesli spent in ensuring our needs were met. The best example of this is that our back garden design needed to take into account that our artist son, Patrick, has a studio in the garden and needed a space where he could work on sculptures and painting outside. Lesli spent considerable time making sure Patrick had a great work space and plenty of light in his studio plus his work area would be screened from the house for aesthetic reasons. The quality of the workmanship has also been of a high standard. We have not had one problem with pavers, watering system and lighting.

It was a pleasure working with Lesli on these projects and it is very gratifying to hear people compliment us on our beautiful gardens."
