Step 1 : Brief

We commence the design process with a complimentary meeting with the client to develop a comprehensive brief. In this meeting we discuss the client’s requirements, objectives, and individual stylistic personality. We also discuss functional flexibility and long term goals, developing a thorough understanding of how the site can best be moulded to suit the lifestyle of the client.

Step 2 : Plan

We then identify the unique characters and constraints inherent to each site. Considering aspect, altitude, soil structure and fertility, prevailing winds, minimum and maximum temperatures, average rainfall and any other individual criteria such as views, traffic noise, neighbours etc. Our designs are then thoroughly thought through. Using the existing architectural style as a foundation, and accommodating all the above conditions and needs. Relative to the clients brief.

Step 3 : Quantify

All our designs are precisely costed with detailed pricing. To ensure optimum transparency for the client as well as ease of amendment to any particular features. This also allows us to easily coordinate a works schedule and collaborate with any associated professionals as required.

Step 4 : Install

During construction, all our jobs are fully supervised under the personal guidance of a project manager as well as the dedicated experience of an on-site supervisor. We work hand in hand with the various contractors and artisans to help ensure that each design is perfectly executed with the highest possible level of quality and care.

Step 5 : Maintain

Investing in a landscape means buying a changing product. In order to ensure that the landscape matures correctly over time, we also offer a maintenance contract for a renewable period of 3-12 months after installation.

Dear Contours Landscapes 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. Contours Landscapes 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 Contours Landscapes 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).

Paul Farah

We are really happy with the service we received from you and the Contours Landscapes team and Annabel LOVES running around the garden….it’s made such a difference to our home.

Dear Stephen, Bevil and the team at Contours  Landscapes , As we look at our new garden every day and see new treasures and riots of colour influencing the landscape, we wanted to thank you all most sincerely for a splendid job very well done. What you have delivered for us is exactly what we wanted and just as we imagined, but we most certainly needed you to guide us to the end result. A number of things impressed us hugely during the project…… the time and focus you gave to the planning and design, the careful choice of plants, trees and shrubs and the great care you took with the treatment of levels, the planting and the soil to ensure an excellent growth result. We look forward to working with you all as our extraordinary garden grows and you are welcome to list us as a reference for future business for Contours Landscapes. Kind regards and best wishes”

Our first quote was more expensive than Contours Landscapes but the more important reason why we went with them was because they made me able to truly imagine how our garden would be transformed and I believed that they wanted us to be happy with every aspect of it – that we weren’t just another job.
