Complimenting a Remarkable backdrop
Anne and Martin Issott fled the throngs of Asia and chose to make the majestic Queenstown region their home. The solace they wanted from their southern migration has been accentuated in the design of their house at Lakeside Estates overlooking Lake Wakatipu. The couple engaged Southern Landmarx to implement their LAND produced? Landscape design and they desired to incorporate local plants and materials into the stunning site.
Design by LAND Landscape Architects.
“We found Joe and his team to be very reliable and flexible, they always went the extra mile when it came to making any changes we wanted, and they were open to ideas and did not charge an arm and a leg for making the changes. The Southern Landmarx team took a lot of pride in their work and always cleaned up beautifully when they had finished, which makes a lot of difference when you are living around the job.
The team finished on time and have kept up their on-going work, putting in plants when planting time is right. We have kept Joe on to maintain the garden he is doing such a great job. The neighbours have held our lot up as a benchmark for the estate; they have been so impressed with how it looks, in particular with the native plantings at the gully edges.
They are a very good team, they have a great level of knowledge about the materials and plants they use, and Joe’s approach to getting in and getting his hands dirty with the team works well – they were great to have around on the job.”
