Hey There! I’m Rochelle Greayer. I’m a garden designer on TV and IRL. I’m also an author and entrepreneur who thinks she can save the world by teaching everyone a little something about landscape design.






Before & After: Swapping a Bench for a Bridge


Last week, Rochelle wrote about Japanese gardens and included some gorgeous images from Martha Stewart Living. I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of this style of gardening and landscapes that are inspired by the idea. That being said, I was pretty excited to find this project earlier today by a company out of Brisbane called Cascade Garden Design. It’s an amazing transformation and one that’s much larger than the scale of most Before & Afters I post, but one can always dream, right?

Yeah. Pretty spectacular, isn’t it? I know– it doesn’t even look like the same space, but rest assured- I checked and double checked and it really is the same yard, shot from the same angle. Here I am wanting a pond,  while they’re hanging out and admiring their stream…a STREAM! With a bridge! Wow. This is one impressive transformation. Speaking of transformations, what are you doing around your own yard these days? Send us an email with a couple photos and you might just see your project here on Studio ‘g’! -erin
