Design & Create

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

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.

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.

Hendrik Kok


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

Francois van Breda


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…



Hi Minette

Thank you, we are very happy and it is all looking so lovely.
I must compliment you and your team on a job well done!!!
Have a super day

Hi Minette and Neville

On behalf of The homeowners Association I would like to thank The Team at Create a Landscape, Neville for the design and his guys for doing such a splendid job.




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.




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
