Who we are and why we love what we do
We’ve been creating high quality home & commercial gardens since 2002
Kobie Jacobs started the business in September 2002 with a strong background in garden design and management. She is a passionate landscape designer who creates tranquil garden layouts combining natural an eco-sensitive materials for detailed indoor and outdoor gardens. With a focus on the Garden Route area, Kobie is renowned for innovative and contemporary garden layouts as well as a meticulous attention to detail. She stays on the edge of the latest garden designs and layout trends thus providing clients with modern and unique garden settings. Kobie specializes in exotic and indigenous designs which are eco sensitive and water wise. Garden design inspiration is drawn from shapes such as circles triangles and squares. The strong form and architectural design of each garden is emphasized by the use of indigenous plants, mosaics, rocks, wooden sleepers and other natural products. Gardens are transformed into calm peaceful and lush environments blending well with the nature that surrounds it. With 17 years’ experience behind her she is moving closer to her ultimate goal of designing gardens all over South Africa.

“Gardening is Fun!”
Local or regional gardening is a great hobby for everyone. Gardening is a truly amazing activity. It’s so rewarding and takes some creative thinking. It’s easy to do, takes a lot of time, and feels good in the long run. Yes, gardening is usually a bit demanding of a person’s time, but it really can be a real treat.
