New Court Steenberg

New Court Steenberg is a high-end residential estate located in Tokai, Western Cape. We transformed a bare and neglected piece of fallow land into a riot of seasonal floral colour. The landscape was designed by OVP Landscape Architects to be an informal yet structured design. A mixed colour spectrum plant palate incorporating seasonal bulbs makes for a riot of seasonal floral colour all year round. Shade cast by existing mature trees presented an opportunity to incorporate shade-loving plants, whilst other areas are drenched in sun and dappled shade making for a landscape that permitted the design team to use a wide variety of plant species chosen for their preference for full shade, full sun or dappled light. Irrigation water is supplied by an 80m deep borehole. The irrigation system was designed and installed under our scope of works.

Privacy is ensured by placing trees strategically ensuring neighbouring properties are not visible.

The project was installed by Contours Landscapes in 2018 and has been maintained by our maintenance department ever since installation.
