Summer Landscape Lovin' with Mon Palmer

December 16, 2020

What better way to spend lockdown than to build a beautifully landscaped garden? That’s what Rebeka has been up to and she’s gotten slightly garden-obsessed all because of our special guest today, Mon Palmer. Mon is an expert landscape designer whose beautiful aesthetic seeps into everything she touches, especially gardens, and she joins us today to share why she’s so obsessed with outdoor spaces.

In addition to designing beautiful landscapes, interiors, outdoor spaces and more, Mon offers a masterclass that teaches others how to sketch up and design from concept through to detail design presentation. In this episode, Mon shares how she got into the industry, where her original inspiration for landscape came from and her journey to starting her own successful business.

Rebeka and Mon discuss the importance and benefits of thinking about landscaping at planning stages and not just leaving it to last.  Gardens can be so much more than just a border of trees blocking your neighbours.  When thought and consideration are put into the outside with a holistic approach, it completely enhances the feel of a home and adds significant value to the property.

In this episode, Mon talks about how her inspiration for design comes from all kinds of places and how she honed in on developing her own style and aesthetic.  She shares a few tips on how to start approaching garden design for yourself and the importance of getting to the core of your vision.  The best designs are authentic for the person, so being clear on what your heart loves is what it’s all about.


You’re going to love this episode and we’re pretty sure you’ll be slightly garden obsessed by the end of it.
