Hatt

Hatt GardenThis dated garden, on the verge, needed a makeover after the mess caused form the borehole installation.  As with most open front gardens the garden needed to make a bold statement compared to a private garden which is more functional. Also considering water restrictions and the harsh site conditions the garden needed to be [...]

Informal formality – Gates garden

Informal Formality - Gates GardenThis garden with its dilapidated lawn and an informally paved path had plenty of potential. The brief was to create a fragrant floral indigenous/ water wise garden with a play area that could be viewed from the patio. The client really wanted a tree for her kids to climb so the [...]

Poole

Poole GardenA garden with two different sides (Jekyll and Hyde). A Fynbos garden and a Forest garden with a stream and two ponds dissecting the two halves. We added some bulky back ground shrubs , ferns and flowering perennials to spice up this lovely established garden. Watch this space…

French Petit

French PetitThis tiny garden was on a tight budget. The client asked for a low maintenance, minimalistic garden with cleaver touches and a place to sit and read or have a cup of coffee. We drew inspiration from the French garden style which our client is fond of. The garden barely had existing plants. Two [...]

On the verge of restrictions

On the verge of restrictionsWhat do you dish up when your client orders a striking low maintenance garden during water restrictions in mid-summer? Then river boulders, hardy ornamental grasses and succulents are on the menu. This sandy verge contained one established fever tree. The client needed two extra parking bays plus a path to the [...]

Elkanah School

Elkanah Preparatory School GardenWe were commissioned by the Architect to do the soft landscaping around the new class rooms of the Elkanah Preparatory School in Sunningdale. The original gardens mainly consisted of thirsty lawn areas. Our brief was to transform the areas into functional, educational and interactive areas which had to be low on water [...]

Luck

Luck GardenThis garden was once a dismal blank patch in an urban space. Being barren and sandy with a low organic content, subject to coastal winds which make garden establishment difficult if ignored, and the dull flat surface meant that this space really didn’t have very much going for it. Today it is a beautiful [...]

Betty

Betty GardenWe have been servicing this garden fortnightly since November 2010. Total maintenance time is 12hrs over a period of two days. The lawns are mowed, and maintenance is done according to a specialized scope of works which is drawn up in colaboration with the client, as she loves to be involved in the maintenance [...]

Van Wyk

Van Wyk GardenStage 1: Cleanup: The entire area need to be cut back and cleaned. The clients were very disheartened and believed that the soil was dead and that nothing would grow there. The lawn they had planted in the past had died and they thought that the earth had no nutritional value left. We [...]

Big Bay

Big Bay GardenThis small garden in the gorgeous suburb of Big Bay in the Western Cape packs a big punch! By using railway sleepers, tree ringpavers, cobblestones and indigenous plants, this simplistic yet stylish design is low maintenance while still being beautiful. It is divided into three distinctive areas: Seating area with fire pit overlooking [...]

Horace’s Garden

Horace's Garden Dogs are like engineers – they like to get from A to B via the most direct route possible; but dogs are usually in a lot more of a rush to go where they are headed. They have no care for what’s in the way; so your precious new plant will eventually bow [...]
