Garden Design

We believe that a well-designed landscape is an artistic expression, of both client and designer, which morphs the divisions between a building and its surrounds. Our experienced designers guide each client through a comprehensive design phase, consulting and advising on all aspects from concept, style guides and plant selection, to the final master plan.


Residential Landscaping

We aim to understand and incorporate a site’s unique characteristics, while accommodating its constraints and maximizing its unique qualities. The installation of all hard and soft landscaping works is carried out by one of our appointed project managers with the aid of a senior supervisor and team of experienced garden crewmen.

Commercial Landscaping

Cape Contours Landscape Solutions has an extensive commercial client portfolio including Developers, Architects, Landscape Architects and Government institutions. We offer a professional and high-quality, consultancy, supply, and landscape implementation service for corporate and commercial landscapes (including sports fields).


Gabion Walls

Gabions are simply dry-packed stone walls contained neatly within wire mesh baskets. Rather than having to hand-dress large, heavy stones in order to painstakingly build watertight structures, packing rock into mesh baskets creates a slightly looser and lighter feel that has a softer and more natural effect in a landscape. Water is able to pass through these walls freely which makes them ideal for use as retaining structures, raised beds or terraces where water-logging is a problem.

Living Green Walls

Living Green Walls (LGWs), also known as vertical gardens, add a beautiful living element to exterior or interior walls and architecture. These marvellous living tapestries can be used almost anywhere, with innovative designs uniquely customized to fit any space. They can be adapted into a portable screen or partition between spaces, an extended planting surface for fresh herbs and vegetables, or to add a lush backdrop in apartments, restaurants and shops.

Sports Fields Cape Contours

Sports Fields

Cape Contours has a long history in the installation and maintenance of recreational and professional sports field surfaces. We offer our clients a turn-key solution to their sport field requirements encompassing all aspects of their planning including installation, establishment and maintenance.


In order to monitor that the landscape matures correctly over time, we also offer a maintenance contract for a renewable period of 3-12 months after installation so that we may ensure the landscape develops correctly. This can be customised to suit your needs and to include daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly visits.

What Our Clients Have To Say

We are thrilled with our beautiful new garden. Thank you your wonderful team! You turned our garden nightmare into something very special!
Carol Conlin
Dear Cape Contours team, I wanted to express our heartfelt thanks as the Ngewana family for all your hard work. With project like these there are always unexpected surprises as you know. The team on site dealt with those so efficiently that I am astounded at how efficiently it has all been done. It got to a stage where every day was a pleasant surprise at the end of a hectic day as we watched it all unfold. This garden makes my heart sing. Walking through it at the end of each day is bound to be a very welcome de stressing experience for me. I am in awe of all your expertise. I am telling all and sundry and i have several dinner parties planned with all sorts of stakeholders to show it off. Thank you.

I started off knowing what I envisaged the end product to be – a fynbos wonderland on the mountainside – but did not know how to go about what would be a daunting project in anybody’s language. Cape Contours cleared the long neglected site, developed a plan that was tweaked, and came up with a planting plan, including appropriate plants(and some personal favourites). The site was re-sculpted, using rock on site, to create hand-packed stone retaining walls. An impressive achievement, that sets the tone for the whole garden. With planting completed in November 2010, I look forward to the garden developing its own unique character, caught between the sea and the mountains. The work was completed long distance, with courtesy, efficiency and understanding.

The Cape Contours team provided us with a green, neat, structured garden that was at the same time, warm, comforting, dynamic and interesting.

Both Kerstin and I are very happy with the garden. The new section looks amazing and is going to look even better when the garden grows in a bit. We are also super thrilled with the rest of the garden. It is mine, and I think Kerstin’s favourite part of the entire house and we spend every morning and evening walking through it admiring its beauty. Thank you so much! It is a gift you have given us that will bring us joy for the rest of the time we live there (hopefully the rest of my life).
