"Ascher Smith Landscape Designs provide to us a service that was second to no one! From the very start, we were made to feel that our wishes were being listened to so carefully, that by the time we received our first draft of landscape plans it was obvious that all our visions were going to come to life. We were kept informed and up to date all the way through the process. The result is a garden and landscape that has exceeded all our expectations. We are delighted with the outcome and would have no hesitation in recommending Ascher and her team. They are highly professional and have followed up way past completion to ensure that we are satisfied and happy.
We are now 12 months into our garden and it has grown in a manner that is exactly as we had visioned. Our garden is low maintenance, lush, healthy and exotic. We love our garden and its ambience.
We thought that working with such a small space was initially going to be a challenge. Instead Ascher rose to the challenge and managed to create something so different and interesting, that you couldn't have imagined possible. We absolutely love it."

"Ascher and her team successfully transformed our large weed covered block, creating a beautiful garden and a great entertaining area.
After an initial discussion, Ascher was able to incorporate many of our requests and ideas into a detailed hand-drawn design that enabled us to visualise the finished product. Her advice regarding plants, materials and her portfolio of other work made many of the decisions easier and she was able to help guide us to a great result.
The team of trades that did the work (the scope included limestone walls, brick walls, paving, decking, planting, lawn and reticulation) were well managed, professional and efficient. In addition the communication was great and we were consulted as appropriate.
The results are fantastic and something we now enjoy every day."

"Ascher and her Team designed and constructed a stunning pool area and garden landscape for our new home. Following a disappointing plan from another landscaper we asked around and heard about Ascher Smith Landscape Designs from one of our friends. From our first meeting with Ascher we were impressed with her passion, knowledge and professionalism.
The planning commenced a year out with getting the design right and the garden was started at handover so by the time we moved in it looked like the garden had been there for years. The size and quality of plants chosen made the garden feel older than it was. Ascher kept us informed on the progress and always went that bit extra so that the end result would meet with her high standards.
We are always more than happy to recommend Ascher to friends and acquaintances and have been enjoying our stunning garden in all types of weather."
Bringing the outside in….
I realised that I rarely opened the blinds or ventured outside …. Thanks to Ascher this has changed! I love my outdoors and if I’m not outside the blinds are definitely open … and at night the lights are on! It’s an elegant fairyland space that is now the preferred setting for drinks and dinners.
Thank you Ascher for transforming my courtyard into wonderful space that flows seamlessly from the inside out….and outside in. From the first consultation, listening to my ideas, looking at my collection of wish list pictures, I sensed that Ascher understood what I was trying to achieve and translated this into a concept plan that focussed on linking the indoors and the outdoors….only having a small courtyard space to work with. Not only does the space look gorgeous but it is easy to maintain and is dog friendly.
Ascher is a true professional who is passionate about what she does and is extremely knowledgeable. I appreciated the level of communication throughout the process…I knew what was happening, who was at my home…and felt assured that my hope for a beautiful and functional space was going to be realised through Ascher’s creativeness and attention to detail. I was most impressed with how particular Ascher is in terms of sourcing her materials, from the plants to the pavers.
I highly recommend Ascher …. She certainly made my garden transformation wish a beautiful reality!

Testimonial from Margaret and Alan Luscombe at Carine.
"Ascher Smith was recommended to us by a horticulturist. During her first visit we discussed our ideas and very quickly came to the conclusion that we were happy to have her present us with a plan and costings.
We were delighted with the quality of the work of all tradesmen. We were happy with the relationship we built up with Ascher and her continued consultation on all matters. Her knowledge of plants suitable to various
positions in the garden and soil types was excellent as was her ability to source plants in our budget range.
Our job was a large one with a very large old garden to re-establish. We are delighted with the results."

Personal reference for Ascher Smith,
"To whom it may concern,
I first met Ascher in the first quarter of 2008, when as a representative of Waldeck’s she came to our house to discuss our requirements for landscaping.
As my wife and I only had a vague idea of what we required, Ascher took the time to sit and discuss our requirements and then proposed a high level landscaping design for the front and back of our house in detail. When she left my wife and I felt like Ascher had been able to document and enhance our initial vague ideas into something concrete. We instantly were impressed by her vision and her presentation.
When we received the detailed plan in the mail it was exactly like she had described. She had kept within our budget and it was the perfect design for us.
We accepted the quotation and over the remaining year Ascher was able to guide her team to create her vision. The end result was within budget and astoundingly beautiful.
Throughout the whole process we were constantly in contact with Ascher and she was always available to assist and answer our queries. Ascher always had a smile on her face and she has a rare quality to leave you feeling good about yourself.
She is a professional, happy young woman with an amazing eye for design and I expect that she will progress to the highest level in her field. I would strongly recommend her to anyone. She would be a most valuable asset to any client or organization.

"To Whom It May Concern:
We have had the pleasure of working with Ascher Smith when designing the garden at our new house.
She proved to be very knowledgeable about the plants and design I wanted to achieve.
She was attentive to details and my brief. She put a lot of effort into sourcing the particular plants I wanted even though they were hard to find. The result paid off and we have a very attractive, much admired garden.
We have found her hard working and conscientious and very helpful with recent queries regarding the upkeep of the garden.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her for future clients. We would like to wish her well and hope we can continue the excellent friendly hard working relationship we have established over the last 12 months.
