Grounded Landscaping

Southern Africa is home to a rich diversity of fauna and flora. Over 24000 plant species have been recorded in the subregion, and many of our plants are cultivated in gardens around the world, where they are much loved by their hosts and by those who visit the gardens.

Southern African homeowners are placing increasing value on indigenous species in their gardens, in particular for the wildlife these plants support. By planting locally indigenous species homeowners can encourage the local wildlife (specifically beneficial insects) to travel beyond the confines of nearby nature reserves and protected areas into surrounding gardens where the plants they feed on can be found. This increases the biodiversity of an area and helps to sustain our wonderful fauna and flora, along with creating a sensory appealing garden to enjoy.

Grounded Landscaping is an award-winning, Johannesburg-based company specialising in indigenous gardens. We create grassland, bushveld and forest themed gardens based on the requirements of the client and the specifics of the site, and use modern design concepts to integrate the garden into your home.

    For anyone looking to redo their garden and entertainment area, I can’t recommend Grounded Landscaping enough. They are an award-winning Johannesburg based landscaping company, headed up by Glenice Ebedes. They specialise in indigenous gardens, and focus on quality and attention to detail.

    Glenice and her partner Ryan make the most amazing team. They are so kind and gentle but fiercely professional too. They are uber efficient and super talented. Last year we briefed Glenice to design a beautiful but low maintenance garden for us, and right off the bat, we were impressed.

    I have never had a garden before and my green thumb is more a consequence of painting than gardening, so I really didn’t know where to start. Our designs were presented as professional layout renderings with full descriptions and explanations for the flowers chosen and trees selected. So much thought went into what plants would go where and why.

    Fast forward 6 months and our little Eden has really begun to take hold and flourish. I am so very proud of our beautiful garden and spend as much time in it as humanly possible. It has been perfectly designed as low maintenance as requested and as Glenice put it so perfectly, “this garden has been created for the birds, bees and butterflies” and I couldn’t be happier.

    From the moment I contacted Grounded Landscaping I received professional yet personal service from Glenice. Upon our first meeting I knew I could trust Glenice to give me the look & feel I wanted & I was right. Glenice goes the extra mile to make sure you’re happy. When she saw I had small kids eager to play outside, she pushed her team to work faster. We ended up needing extra work done like piping, drainage & irrigation & yet the job was completed before the time she initially quoted us on.
    Thank you guys so much. You’re an amazing team. My garden looks awesome.

    Glenice, Ryan and the team from Grounded Landscaping have been an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Bearing in mind we are in the middle of a game reserve and so far away from Johannesburg, the planning and execution has been exemplary. In the seven days they were with us Glenice and Ryan were completely hands on, always available and totally involved with this large project. Everyone on the team was completely professional and friendly and it was a wonderful way for our staff and ourselves to learn so much with this hands on approach. Nothing was too much trouble and it was a project that had a “feel good“ effect. Our guests have been delighted with the result and we are doubly thrilled that due to this project we are saving 22 500 litres of water a week. Sincere thanks.

    What we do

    At Grounded we strive to enhance the biodiversity of our client's gardens through the use of locally indigenous plant material. By understanding the plants and habitats that support our local wildlife, as well as understanding the strengths and limitations of a site, we can design a garden that is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, as well as wildlife-friendly. Once we have met with you and assessed your site - the existing trees and shrubs, light and shade, soil, drainage, existing structure, contours and features - we can discuss a vision for your garden and work on a design based around a particular theme. Hardscaping features can then be incorporated, including firepits/bomas, pathways and seating areas, water features, play areas, and food gardens. Herewith are the gardens we specialise in:

    BIOME-THEMED GARDENS

    GRASSLAND GARDENS

    The diversity of the grassland biome is second only to that of fynbos. It covers the central and eastern regions of South Africa and is characterised by summer showers and dry winters, with fires that stimulate underground bulbs and tubers to sprout, regenerating the region. Although it is easy to think of a grassland as simply grass - often this is the predominant view when looking at the veld - a grassland actually contains a large number of forbs (non-grass species) which contribute significantly to the diversity of the region. A grassland garden aims to recreate this habitat by including as many locally indigenous grassland species as possible - both grasses and forbs, as well as pioneer, perennial, tufted and creeping species - and by matching species to the conditions of the site. Short grassland species are preferred for smaller gardens, and rocky areas, pathways and lighting can be added to make the garden accessible and aesthetically pleasing.

    BUSHVELD GARDENS

    The bushveld/savanna biome is extensive, ranging northwards from central South Africa into Africa. It is characterised by grasses and large trees and shrubs, especially thorn trees. To create this biome in your garden requires a bit of space, a predominantly sunny area, and a mix of grasses and open savanna shrubs and trees. Bushveld thickets can be added as exclusion zones for wildlife, and rocky areas (with associated plant species), pathways, dry riverbeds (for drainage) and hardscaping features can be incorporated to create an aesthetically pleasing space. A bushveld garden naturally attracts wildlife, specifically beneficial insects and the birds that feed on them. Nectar and fruit-eating birds are also well catered for, and the habitat naturally lends itself to safety and nesting opportunities for wildlife amongst the thorn trees and shrubs.

    FOREST GARDENS

    The forests of Southern Africa are found mainly on the higher-rainfall southern and eastern sides of the region. In Gauteng, forests are predominantly found in isolated patches in kloofs and along streams, and are characterised by tall evergreen and deciduous trees, and understory shrubs and groundcovers - including shade-loving grasses. Over the years Johannesburg and Pretoria have developed into urban forests, providing homeowners with leafy suburbs and cool shade during the summer months. But because of this, homeowners often struggle with what to plant beneath their trees, sometimes spending years trying to get lawn to grow. Fortunately South Africa is home to a rich diversity of forest plants, some of which are found on the highveld. By combining locally indigenous forest species with more broadly occuring species home owners can turn their shaded gardens into wildlife-friendly forest retreats.

    OTHER GARDEN THEMES

    Although a locally indigenous garden will naturally attract wildlife, there are times when you might have a specific request, such as a 'bird-friendly' or 'butterfly-friendly' garden, or a food garden. Below are some additional garden themes we specialise in.

    AQUATIC GARDENS

    LEARN MORE
    Aquatic areas - such as wetlands - are biodiversity hotspots, and South Africa is home to a rich diversity of water-loving plants. Aquatic (water) gardens are thriving ecosystems, providing habitat, food and drinking water for wildlife, as well as creating a sensory space for you to enjoy. They do not need to be large, and can be incorporated into small spaces. Soak away areas, dry riverbeds - which flow during the rainy season and help with drainage - precast or custom-built water features, or ponds, technical wetlands, and natural swimming pools are all examples of water gardens that can be added to your home

    SEMI-DESERT GARDENS

    The arid regions of Southern Africa - particularly the succulent karoo - are hotspots for plant biodiversity, and every year local and international tourists flock to the region to see succulents and wildflowers in bloom. Although the climate differs from the highveld, homeowners can recreate this habitat in their garden by choosing a hot sunny spot - preferably with well-drained soil - and incorporating species that are tolerant of our wet summers and cold, frosty winters. Visit our plantbook.co.za website for planting options, or contact us to set up a consultation.

    LAWN-FREE GARDENS

    As the name implies, a lawn-free garden refers to a space that doesn't have lawn, and therefore doesn't require mowing, requires less watering, and overall requires less maintenance. Lawn-free gardens can be based on a particular biome, or we can incorporate a range of different indigenous species. Access through a lawn-free garden is usually on pathways, stepping stones or decking, whilst low-growing groundcovers like Dymondia can be used for more open spaces, and can handle a small amount of foot traffic. In general lawn-free gardens increase biodiversity, and using up your lawn space allows you to experiment with new plant species, each one adding something special to your home.

    BIRD GARDENS

    A bird garden is one that attracts and supports the local birdlife, through the use of indigenous plant material, and by using elements that provide perching, nesting, drinking, and foraging opportunities. Although creating a locally indigenous garden will naturally attract birds, bird gardens can be enhanced by adding a few out of range plant species, as well as adding nesting logs, bird baths and water features. Different birds are attracted by different plants, so it is worth including a variety of different plant species. Some indigenous grasses for example attract seed-eaters, whilst fruiting plants attract fruit-eaters, and nectar-producing plants attract nectar-feeders such as sunbirds. Locally indigenous host plants attract the insects that feed on them, which in turn attract insectivorous birds. It is amazing how quickly birds respond to a newly installed garden, so if you have an interest in birds then consider creating a bird-friendly garden in your home.

    BUTTERFLY & BEE GARDENS

    As with bird gardens, creating a locally indigenous garden will naturally attract bees and butterflies to your home, but if you have a preference for these delightful creatures then there are a few enhancements you can make. For butterflies it's important to distinguish between two methods to attract them; the first by providing them with nectar-producing flowers, and the second by planting butterfly-specific host plants. Arguably the most well known of these is the Kiggelaria africana (Wild Peach), which is host to the Garden acraea butterfly. This butterfly - specifically its larvae -  can become so prolific that it can strip the leaves of the tree bare, but the plant soon recovers, and in return you are rewarded with a garden filled with orange-coloured butterflies, as well as visiting cuckoos which feed on the larvae. Other well-known butterfly host plants include Vepris lanceolata (White Ironwood) which is host to the Citrus Swallowtail butterfly (if it isn't feeding on your lemon trees..), and Plectranthus species which are host plants for the Garden Inspector. As for bees, well it is worth mentioning that there are more than 1200 different species in the country! Apart from the African Honey Bee, carpenter bees are just as wonderful to have in the garden, and by providing appropriate nectar plants, as well as 'bee-hotels', one can help attract and support these much needed pollinators.

    FOOD GARDENS

    Food (vegetable/herb) gardens have been a part of our homes for years, and there is surely nothing more rewarding (or healthy) than growing your own food. Food gardens can be incorporated into small spaces, or can be installed as vertical gardens using new vertical garden products and designs. We still prefer to plant our vegetables and herbs in the ground, but whatever the case might be, a little creativity goes a long way in helping you incorporate a food garden into your home.

    Garden features

    Once we have chosen a theme or biome for your garden, we can then include hardscaping features such as firepits/bomas, water features and lighting. Below are some of the features and elements we specialise in and can add to your garden.

    FIREPITS/BOMA

    There is something special about spending time around a fireplace, and firepits (or bomas) are wonderful entertainment areas which bring friends and family together. They are also practical spaces for cooking outdoors, and often become a central focal point of the home. Firepits are best when they are designed as part of the overall garden, and with a bit of creativity can be incorporated into small spaces. We have specialised in firepit installations from the onset, and constantly refine both our designs and the materials we use, so that our best firepit design is often the one we are currently working on.
    CONTACT US TO DESIGN YOUR FIREPIT/BOMA

    WATER FEATURES

    As mentioned above, aquatic/water gardens add a new sensory element to your garden, and can be incorporated into small spaces. If you don't have the space for a technical wetland, then a custom built or precast water feature is the next best thing to help bring the sound of water to your home. Adding a small feature is as easy as visiting your local DIY store or nursery and choosing one, or asking us to choose or custom build one into your new garden space.

    LIGHTING

    Lighting makes all the difference when it comes to enjoying your garden in the evenings, and most gardens benefit from the inclusion of strategically placed lights. When it comes to installation we use the latest technologies to help save electricity, including day-night sensors, LED fittings, and remote control systems.

    PLAYGROUNDS & PLAY AREAS

    If you have young children play areas can be incorporated into your garden through the use of sand pits, artificial lawn, swings and slides, as well as wendy houses, or perhaps even a tree house if you have an established tree. Remember that not all play areas need to be dedicated play spaces. Kids love exploring gardens, so adding pathways, stepping stones, fairy gardens or simply an informal seating area to your existing garden will all enhance the enjoyment for kids. We custom-build play areas for our client’s gardens, but have also built school playgrounds and parks as CSI projects. Encourage your kids to play outdoors by incorporating landscaped play areas into your garden.

    IRRIGATION

    We believe indigenous gardens do not require an irrigation system. As in nature, your garden should be able to rely on rainfall, or manual watering if there are extended dry spells, and we have installed many gardens that do not have irrigation but which remain healthy throughout the year, and whose owners are willing to manually water them if required. But there are times when an irrigation system is convenient, such as a newly installed garden, or gardens with thirsty plants such as food (herb/vegetable) gardens.

    If you do want an irrigation system then we have a team dedicated to the installation of irrigation. We are trained by the LIA (Landscape Irrigation Association) and install our systems by following best practices. We use the latest technologies and are up to speed with the latest trends in the industry. We also use high-density (HDPE) piping and fittings, which ensures a long-lasting, robust solution. Here are some of the advantages of using us for your irrigation system:

    • We follow best practices as set out by the LIA
    • Where possible we trench pipes to 400mm or more below the ground
    • We use high-density (HDPE) piping and fittings
    • We use a minimum of 1mm GP cabling between your valves and the controller
    • We apply head-to-head principles in our designs
    • We install rainwater harvesting systems so you can store and use rainwater for your garden
    • We use the latest water-saving technologies, including wifi systems from the leading global manufacturers (including Hunter Hydrawise, Rainbird and Weathermatic)
    • We have extensive experience with plants and understand the various plant types and their watering requirements. Visit our plant website (www.plantbook.co.za) for more information

    RAINWATER HARVESTING

    Rainwater is free and can be stored and used to water your garden when needed. We install our rainwater filters, pipes, tanks and pumps by following best practices, and we use the latest rainwater harvesting technologies. If you are using your rainwater for irrigation we can design an integrated and automated solution. To calculate how much water you can capture, multiply the surface area of your roof (top-down view in square metres) by the number of millimeters of rain. (e.g. 10sqm of roof area x 10mm of rain = 100 litres)

    Garden management

    Management of your garden, specifically the growth of your plants, is vital to long-term success. As plants grow your garden will slowly change, morphing from a newly planted space into an establishing one, so management of this process is important. Key to it all is the underlying vision for your garden, the theme that was planned from the start. Keeping this vision in mind dictates the interventions that may be required to keep the garden on track. A forest-themed garden, for example, may start out as a sunny space - with sun-loving groundcovers - but will in time become shaded as the trees grow and their canopies develop. Once this happens, the sun-loving groundcovers can slowly be replaced with shade-loving species.

    At Grounded we help our clients not only with the initial installation but on an ongoing basis, advising and assisting with various tasks to keep the garden on track. Sometimes these interventions may be as simple as moving a plant or replacing one that is not working. At other times it may involve weeding, pruning, replacing once sunny beds with shade-loving species, or general lawn care. Hardscaping elements can also be maintained through cleaning and resealing. Most clients find that they can maintain their gardens on a weekly basis, but require assistance when it comes to larger tasks and to keeping to the overall plan for the garden.

    How we work

    Before setting out on your garden project we first meet with you at home or on site to ascertain your needs and the vision for your garden. We then discuss the practicalities of the site, its strengths and limitations - existing trees and shrubs, the impact of light and shade in both winter and summer, soil, as well as drainage considerations.  We then take measurements of your existing garden or site, photograph the area, and go through your estate’s landscaping guidelines (if applicable) to ensure our design will conform to the requirements. If your site plans are available then we match these to the measurements we have taken and to imagery from Google Earth (if possible), and utilise them in your design.

    Here is an example of our process flow, from our first meeting with you, through to design, costing, installation, and completion of the garden:

    • First meeting
      We meet with you on site to ascertain your requirements, assess the site, take measurements and photographs, and discuss a vision for the garden. Copies of your site plans and estate guidelines can be emailed to us.
    • Design and costing
      A creative process involving the development of a design based upon our discussions with you, the measurements and photographs we have taken, images from Google Earth, your site plans and your estate’s landscaping guidelines. Once our design is complete (about 1-2 weeks) we present it to you and discuss the layout, costing, plants, hardscaping elements and any changes you require.
    • Installation & post-installation walk-through
      Under the supervision of Glenice or Ryan we begin work on your garden. Most gardens can be completed in 2-4 weeks, whilst very small gardens may take only a couple days. Larger projects which require the use of earth moving equipment may take up to 6 weeks or more. After completion we walk you through your completed garden to discuss the plants, ongoing management, the irrigation system (if installed), and any questions you have.
    • Seasonal management
      We find that most home owners can take care of their new gardens on their own, but require assistance when it comes to larger management tasks. We provide a seasonal service to assist with adjustments to the garden to keep it on track.

    Our service

    At Grounded we strive to provide a professional, personalised service. We use quality products and have an experienced team. Our relationships with a number of suppliers allows us to save you costs and to deliver the high standard we want to be known for. We exercise complete transparency in our pricing so you’ll know exactly what has gone into your garden.
