Flowers represent so many things throughout the lifetime. Congratulations, sympathy, I love you, I’m sorry. They are a way for you to express yourself in some way to a partner, a friend, a family member, a work colleague. No matter how you use them, flowers are a symbol that will long continue to represent some stage in life.
Although flowers are often given as a gesture, for some, a beautiful garden is the heart of the home. A place where time can be spent relaxing, reflecting and enjoying some peace and quiet. This is where my passion spans from.
My name is Dominique and I am the owner of Enchanting Gardens. My job is to design and plant gardens for my clients to create a space of ambiance. I believe this is a form of self-expression and an art form I am extremely passionate about. Planting is similar to painting a picture in the sense that I can visualise the new garden before it’s planted and I pride myself on being able to do so.
I am often asked, why do your clients choose you? My answer is simple, I am empathetic to them. I want to be able to create a space for where they are comfortable – somewhere they want to spend their time. Often, these spaces have some significance to something that’s happened in their life and I want to reflect the importance of that.
Each consultation is different and represents the individual. What plants are put in, the layout, style and finishing touches are all down to personal preference and in taking everything into account, I can create exactly what they are after. Understanding that this could be an emotional transition for my customers allows me to build those important relationships to create trust and ease.
Creating these gardens gives me so much joy and to see my customers happy at the end of it, makes the job worthwhile. If I can bring some form of happiness to those that have gone through a difficult time, I will feel like I’ve achieved something very special.
