Design

With over 20 years of experience Arlo is able to resolve the most challenging sites. He develops unique gardens by drawing from various styles.

Favouring strong uncluttered lines and a good sense of space, the design is an essential process for any garden. It is the starting point of a creative and rewarding journey.

Greencube also offers design courses for those wishing to pursue their own design solutions.

Hard Landscape Elements

greencube is able to resolve all the elements and processes that are required in the creation of a garden.

These often start with the earthworks, be it a pick and shovel or a thirty ton excavator. With these large machines greencube has transformed gardens by excavating terraces, placing large boulders and has created undulating dunescapes as well as naturally flowing berms hundreds of meters long.

greencube designs terraces and retaining walls of brick and mortar, natural stone or gabions. Swimming pools, ponds and streams as well as natural swimming pools and grey water wetland systems have been successfully tackled by greencube and associated experts.

greencube has a great team of carpenters available to create the timber decks, balustrades and stairways you desire; as well as metal workers capable of creating the most spectacular galvanised metal balustrade details and even the bespoke metal gazebo pictured at House band, Klein Constanta.

Pathways, stairways and patios in a variety of materials ranging from crushed table mountain sandstone, rolled laterite, natural and reconstituted stone pavers and clay klompie bricks have been beautifully designed and installed by greencube.

greencube has an irrigation division capable of installing and managing an automated irrigation system for your garden as well as offering recommendations for the installation of boreholes and well points.
