After he qualified in 1997 from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology he worked for various landscape companies in Cape Town as well as in Germany and England. He registered this company in 2000 and has had great pleasure building many gardens since then. Ross has completed irrigation design courses and takes particular pride in overseeing the successful installation of irrigation systems. The company started small and has grown steadily over the years to a size we are happy with. We have a great team from all over Africa and South Africa and have various specialists from supervisors to foreman, drivers, bricklayers, irrigation installers, machine operators and our trained maintenance team. Each job is unique and we have a team that can install a garden to our designers and client’s highest expectations.
