Design by Nature
Louise Pelle (was Costa) is a landscape architect specialising in the creation of unique gardens and playgrounds. Her business, Design By Nature has been operating in the Goulburn Valley since 1997. Louise’s passion for creating gardens that honour the natural environment is reflected in her work which is based on a number of environmental objectives. These include building gardens that attract and provide habitat for native animal and bird species, creating gardens with the use of recycled materials, using plant species that are indigenous to the area and subsequently suited to the climate and soil-types and wherever possible, using locally sourced materials for landscaping. Louise is a sensitive designer with a keen eye for observing the processes of nature and incorporating them into her specialised style of garden design; fashioning landscapes that contribute to the natural environment whilst appealing to the most predominant species, humans!
