Did you ever sit in your garden and just think? You are not looking at any particular thing, but you are thinking about everything and anything that has to do with your garden. It doesn’t matter if you knew or not that you had done this. What you did was visualise your land as your own and brainstorm ideas for improving it.
Although the evolution of gardening has been influenced by the style, fashion, ability, wealth, history, travel, experimentation, and prowess over time, it is all possible to boil it down to one need. Garden-making is about the ability to exert some control over one’s surroundings. That is really all garden design today is.
Although creating a garden is a time-consuming and complex process, it is possible to create the space you desire. After that initial thought, there will be many discussions about everything from the style you prefer to how sustainable your garden may be. Don’t let the details get in the way of your vision. While it is important to have a well-designed garden, the most important part of the gardening process is keeping your vision and pursuing that dream. Our landscaping is here to assist you not only in the technical aspects of gardening, but also to help you focus your vision and make it a reality.
Why is this encyclopedia still needed? It is because gardening can be lonely. Even though we are bombarded daily with ideas, information, and images (books, the internet, magazines, and social media), it is not common to be able to look in one place for all things – from plant selection and gravel colour to fence posts and tree heights. The very nature of having so much choice can render the designer/gardener/client more than a little confused as to what they actually want from their garden. A garden’s construction can be affected by so many factors – plants and hard materials – that it is necessary for a designer to have a place of refuge where they can get answers and find solutions. Landscaping in Johannesburg is here to help you in this information-rich world.
The easiest part of gardening is often coming up with a general vision. The hard part is making that vision a reality. This involves deciding how to place the garden, how you can maintain the planting interest, and choosing hard landscaping materials that can withstand all weather conditions. These are the exciting – and sometimes frustrating – parts of the process. However, they can make all the difference between a piece of land that is unusable and a beautiful garden.
