Arné en haar formidabele span het my tuin in n lushof vir die oog omskep. My formele tuin is in n lewendige – bewegende tuin verander. Mense stap en kom klop om te hoor wie het die werk gedoen. Ek het soveel plesier om in my tuin rond te stap en te sien hoe mooi dit steeds word. Arné en haar span is so kundig en professioneel met die uitvoer van hul werk. As hul inspring werk hul ongelooflik netjies en vinnig, mens kan sien elkeen in die span is trots op die werk wat hy verrig. Haar opvolg oproepe en my raadvrae oproepe word altyd met soveel vriendelikheid en raad beantwoord, ek het baie waardering daarvoor.
Ek kan met groot vrymoedigheid Garden Gate aanbeveel vir enige iemand wat hul wil gebruik, dit was en is n plesier om met hul te werk.

When we moved into our new house, we focused on the interior first, but once we were done with it, the bad state of the garden (in fact, the lack of a garden) stood out like a sore thumb.
Arné was referred to us by a landscape architect in our neighbourhood and from the first time that we met with her, it was clear that she is passionate about gardening and creating a space in which to relax in. She came up with a number of great ideas and it took her and her team five working days (from start to finish) to execute her vision. We are over the moon with our beautiful, water wise garden and enjoy spending time in it. At last the exterior is a match for the interior! What a difference a tranquil environment makes to one’s life.

Ons meenthuis tuintjie is net 60 m2 groot. Soveel te meer moet ons hom haarfyn beplan. Met klein kinders oppad moes ons maksimum speelruimte behou en natuurlik ons lieflike uitsig.
Arné se ontwerp het ons gewys hoe ons ons tuin uit sy klasieke skoene kan lig om dit in ’n kontemporere leefruimte te verander. Ons was aangemoedig om ’n lieflike DIY projek, lank in beplanning, tot uitvoering te bring. Soms is dit al wat nodig is.
Ons maak gereeld van Garden Gate se spesiale onderhoud gebruik en geniet die gerusstelling dat ons rankers, bome en potte gesond en reg ontwikkel. Die span bied nie net waarde vir ons geld nie maar ook lewenslus en toewyding. Belê gerus in jouself deur hulle te nader.

When we bought our house, the garden was only a space that was filled with plants and although I could see there was opportunity, it took Arne’s vision to change it into a garden that welcomes us and our guests every day.
The GardenGate team added paving, structure, green belts and playful randomness to what was once dreadful, dry and dusty. I really appreciated the fact that Arne worked with my wishes even though she advised that it will lead to extra work from myself in future. But to this day I love my pot and hanging basket wall – it breaks up the huge imposing presence of the house into a fun and playful view.
I loved the fact that Arne and her team gave us a basis on which we can build to make it our own – year after year.
Several neighbours walking past have commented on how lovely the house now appears, and I truly believe that our garden with Arne and her team have turned our house into a glorious statement.
We have a huge garden and very little time. A few years ago, I received a pamphlet in my post box. I was at my wit’s end trying to keep up with the challenges of maintaining a large garden. I met Arné and asked if she and her team would be willing to do maintenance. They come every fortnight and our garden has never looked so beautiful!
There is always something blooming, the hedges are trimmed and the pots always have some colour. They plant, trim, remove old plants, prune and also make sure that the sprinkler system is always in working order. I can recommend her and her wonderful team, any day!

Na ‘n kort vakansie in Frankryk was ons oorgehaal om ‘n Franse blomtuin in een van die steegies langs ons huis te hê. Die area was toe geplavei met ‘n hele klomp potte waarmee die uitsig uit die kombuis venster verfraai moes word. Arné het ons oortuig om 50% v plaveisel te verwyder. Sy kon die regte plante selekteer en vandag is die koue half skadu tuin is ‘n blommelus. Die regte boom keuse het die nodige privaatheid tussen ons en die bure geskep.
Ons is so tevrede met die bedding dat ons dadelik begin het om Garden Gate se stempel reg rondom ons huis in verskeie fases te laat afdruk.
Die Garden Gate span kom een dag per maand by ons diens om die nodige snoeiwerk en plaagbeheer te doen. Hulle onderhou ook ons besproeiing stelsel. Ons kan hulle aan enige iemand aanbeveel.

Baie dankie aan die Garden Gate span vir ons mooi tuin, professionele hulp en vriendelike gesigte. Ons tuin is vir ons ’n vreugde.

We had just finished building our Urban-farm-style house when I saw the Garden Gate Landscaping team working in the garden of a house down the street from us. They designed and installed our new garden in 2014. It was a great success. We enjoy many complements from visitors who see our garden.
Since then we have used Garden Gate’s services to expand the garden and irrigation system. They are the gardeners for us.

We are excited about Garden Gate Landscaping after their participation in the Garden World 2017 Garden Design Spring Festival. They brought inspiration, innovation in their design and clever planting plan. Their workmanship and work ethics are good and I can sincerely recommend them. Garden World staff all look forward to their future participation in this annual event. All the Best JJ Jansen van Rensburg and the Garden World Team’.
My garden was at a point where it just looked tired and it needed a facelift. Arne bowled me over with her ideas and suggestions. We made a few changes until we were both happy. Sometimes it is difficult to visualise what its going to look like. This is where the designs come in handy.
Within a week of planning and talking, the team arrived. A mere 4 days later and all was done and dusted. The sprinklers all work again and I look forward to a fresh new Spring garden. Thank you Arne and team!!

Garden Gate Landscaping was revered to me by a friend. We wanted to upgrade our garden to something more practical. We live outdoors and our patio area was getting to small to entertain our ever growing family. Arné took us on a wonderful design journey to tailor-make the plans for our Patio extension. It took may weeks of deliberation.
That was the first of 4 projects of garden installation that Garden Gate did for us over the last 3 years. I absolutely adore my garden it speaks of my heart. Thank you Garden Gate.

I am a family friend of Arné and did not think twice of who to call when my husband was ready to have our garden professionally installed. In fact it all came about when Arné made a casual suggestion leaving our house one day after a friendly visit. The Garden Gate team were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We enjoyed it so much we ended revamping the pavement outside our property as well.
