GARDENS WITH COLOUR, TEXTURE AND PERSONALITY
Huis van Zoe is a landscaping and gardening company based in Pretoria. Founded by Zoe Makombe after many years in the landscaping and nursery industry, her desire to create gardens with colour, texture and living experiences for her clients inspired her to start the company.
Her goal is to preserve indigenous spaces with plants that promote the ecosystem and provide visual appeal. The company specialises in landscapes featuring rocks, grasses, succulents and water features, the latter for both aesthetic appeal and functionality. For clients who are concerned about water consumption, the company also offers dry river bed designs.
Height is an important component to garden design style. Gardening vertically as well as horizontally allows for a visual experience which draws the eye to all the different elements of a garden. By bringing in rockeries and planting schemes, the visual experience is enhanced through the soft detailing of the plants and the rougher detail of rock.
The company creates gardens with levels and look-out areas, as well as landscaped rooms that add perspective. Their goal is to provide clients with a visual experience from every point within the space.
