Since completing a Diploma of Landscape Design from Unitec, Sally has been designing gardens in New Zealand and now, Australia. The scope of this work has ranged from larger projects in collaboration with others, to smaller but no less significant projects and consultations. Irrespective of scale or budget Sally likes to incorporate a sense of uniqueness and surprise to every project, whether that is created by the construction of a new landscape element or by the use of innovative planting. Making spaces work in both functional and aesthetic ways is an ongoing challenge. Accommodating the needs of the client and constraints of the budget, the potential of the site and utilising the existing features is a process of finding the balance, yet continually searching for a point of difference.
