Hi,
Where are you situated - no help if you in the Cape and Landscapers are in Cairo. :o
PS. Landscapers do not come that cheap.

Why not landscaping it yourself?
Get some basic literarure about the subject, start looking around and make a plan.
Can be so much more fullfilling and so much more fun!
And it keeps money in your pcoket.

And that said (written) by somebody who also landscapes rockeries a.s.o. in the Western Cape .........

 :good:

So i've decided to do it myself!! :o
I personaly think i'm a bit crazy but hell lets have a go.
If you guys have read all the posts i made today yiu can see i'm pestering everybody with questions. And i'll be back with more and ore.
I have encountered several problems.
1. the builders planted bricks in the hope the house will sprout some extra rooms. i keep on diging up building rubble.
2. I'm terribly unfit!!
3. I have one tree on the hue yard.
4. I do not have a clue to what will grow in JHB. i grew up in Nelspruit tzaneen and bethlehem. my first idea of gardening was if you put it in the soil it will grow then if you plant it the snow will get to it.

I dunno, wonder if that house ever grew, cos the builders did the same in my garden - a year on and I am still removing bricks and tiles and other building bits...
