“Cannot tell you how happy we are with everything. We made the right decision when it came to choosing a designer and keeping you on throughout the project.”
“Rhonda, We can’t thank you enough for the two wonderful landscape plans for the front and back of our Glenburnie home…..Your visions for each were instrumental in adding tremendously to the curb appeal out front and entertaining potential in the back…..Your choice of materials, scale and colours for the front entrance were spot on, something we could not have achieved without your experience, knowledge and direction. It’s been a joy working with you and seeing it all come together – I feel like we have a brand new home, with many neighbours complimenting us on the new look!”
“Rhonda saved us time, money and stress. Our project was a big one that took 6 mths, multiple companies and a lot of people. Our project is our dream come true and it would not look anything like the finished product without Rhonda. She was integral in every facet of our space; from the design, stone selection, placements, flower selection, roof structure design and finishes. She has trades that are skilled and easy to have in your space that she has worked with for years and are excellent in their area of expertise (carpenters, painters, landscape companies, screens, landscape lighting, etc.)
We would never undertake a future project without utilizing Rhonda. Our friends, family and neighbours got to know her by first name after how much we spoke about her! We had a continual slogan in our home that “everyone needs Rhonda!” We are continually grateful to Rhonda and what she has created for us to enjoy as a family for many years to come.”
“Rhonda’s extensive plant knowledge, creative ideas and genuine enthusiasm for our landscaping project made it easy to select Derue Designs to create a plan for establishing a cohesive garden and landscape change for our home. Rhonda worked with us through several reiterations of her initial plan to meet our aesthetic and financial goals, and we were pleased to have a detailed to-scale plan to present to landscape firms for quotes.
Once the work began, Rhonda was indispensable as the guiding force in terms of garden outlines, plant and rock placement (earning the description of rock master from the machine operator) and sounding board for on-site changes and decisions. She was the calm at the centre of a somewhat overwhelming experience. Beginning in November with her initial site visit to completion of the work in September, Rhonda Derue was a pleasure to work with and the result is satisfying and beautiful. Her expertise, enthusiasm and calm demeanor guided us through to a landscaped home that we are proud and delighted to see every day.”
We’ve been the talk of the street for a week now!.”
