Our Landscape Design Process

Meet & Greet

Site Analysis

Design & Create

Present &
Change Control

Build & Install

 

Just as you would not build a house without a plan, you should not put together a landscape without a design, no matter how small.

 

The cost of a design varies between R3000 – R6000

 

Steps In our Design Process

 

  • Client Evaluation
    • Assess family needs and desires
  • Conduct a Site Analysis
    • House orientation, drainage, soil conditions, micro climate, noise levels, existing vegetation, permanent features, measure, levels, locate private, service and utility areas
  • Design Landscape Plan
    • Plan drawn on scale
    • Perspectives / elevations
  • Plant selection and placement
    • Location, location, location is also true for plants
  • Costing
    • Detailed costing for each component as per design per section (allows for a phased implementation)

 

‘If you think good design is expensive, you should look at the cost of bad design’ – Ralf Speth

Very professional service from Create a Landscape. They have truly created a beautiful garden for me. Neville and Minette went out of their way to deliver a top garden.

Create A Landscape, local gardening and landscape company owned by Neville and Minette Orsmond, is a delight to work with. Both Minette and Neville are nature lovers and with their expertise and fine knowledge of local fauna and flora, they created a paradise for me and my twin sister at Waterfall Country Village.Their ideas and the execution thereof, blended perfectly with the Highveld environment and contributed to the beauty of our home’s. So much so that both our gardens were featured in various top local magazines.
They are willing to share their ideas and give advice and also to listen to the requests of the client.
I would HIGHLY recommend them to create an Eden in the middle of Johannesburg and surrounding areas.

From design and concept through to execution, our experience with Create a Landscape can only be described as transcendent. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined the garden that is now my happy place. The view and experience from every corner and angle is joyful and peaceful, and the envy of all my friends.

An outstanding and very passionate team. All of their staff are absolute legends and know their stuff. This picture says it all!

The team at Create a Landscape made the design and execution process very easy and pleasurable. The result is a natural, tranquil space in the midst of joburg suburbs. The views from the inside or outside the house makes you engage with the garden 24/7, throughout the 4 seasons.
A job very well done. I couldn’t be more pleased with how the project turned out.

This mail is long overdue, but just wanted to thank-you for the work done on our new patio. We’re really very happy with how it’s come out and we’ve received loads of compliments on it from family and friends. We’ve had two weekends now in succession with a bunch of Juliette’s friends (for her 5th birthday) and with our family (for all the many October/November birthdays) this past Saturday. It’s been so nice to finally have a space that works well for everyone, from kids to adults. Everyone’s commented on the great finishes, the structure and the plants. The only thing missing now is of course the pergola – Julie’s party was HOT (but we’ll get to that later).

We really appreciate how you accommodated our timing, got to work quickly and finished well before our first event – even with the curveballs I threw, by changing pavers and adding more tasks. I also really appreciate the extras you threw in: the landscaping in our front garden and the pavement, and all the rubble removal.

John was very professional, accommodating and pleasant to deal with – a great site manager – I was very happy to have him around, and all the other workers (Serge, Charles/Amon, David etc) were always friendly and very willing to help out and suggest things. Our dog, Lady, already misses them :).

We will absolutely recommend you to anyone needing design and landscaping services. I hope the year ahead is good to you both.

Regards

Thanks so much for all the effort and hard work put into landscaping my garden. I am very thrilled with the end result and cannot wait to get home tonight after Sundowner Bowls to see the lights reflecting in the garden and indeed on the water feature.

Many thanks again to you all and your splendid team.

Sincerely

Dear Neville and Minette

I can’t tell you how thrilled we all are with the boma! It far exceeded our expectations. We had a ceremonial fire-lighting on Sunday and the boma really welcomed all our guests.

Your team was an absolute pleasure to work with – they were cheerful, courteous and extremely neat and tidy. From our perspective, the entire project was effortless. So thank you most sincerely!

Kind regards

Christine
