She’s passionate about sustainability and permaculture practices that enrich the earth and loves sharing her extensive horticultural knowledge with her clients. Lisa’s practical farming background and eye for design combine to make her an exceptional landscape designer.

Our happy customers.

“We were worried about using a garden designer because we thought it would cost a lot of money, and we would get their design rather than our design. Our perceptions have changed, in fact it was very affordable, especially given the advice that we got, and the ability that we had to do our own work. I would recommend Lisa to anybody out there. Fantastic job.”

Andrew and Jane

“We used Lisa to help us design a garden for our town house, we could not have been more satisfied. Her knowledge in helping us to choose the right plants for the area we had was invaluable. Lisa also helped with the selection of nurseries which gave us excellent value and quality. We would certainly recommend her services.”

Barry and Jenny

“Lisa has been such a joy to work with. She assisted us in uplifting our backyard design from an overgrown, unused backyard to a low maintenance native garden and a beautiful functional space. She collaborates well with the landscaper to ensure that the design execution is aligned. Love the 3D design, it definitely helps bring the visualization to life. We can’t wait to start using the space once landscaping is completed. We definitely recommend Lisa Harper Designs!”
