The Essence.

The essence of a spectacular garden starts with a plan, an understanding of the setting, the ability to embrace nature’s challenges and shape a clear vision for the future.


Margot van der Westhuizen

I am a professionally trained garden designer with a passion for helping clients realise their dreams by creating unique outdoor spaces.

Before launching my practice, I had a successful career in project management and consultancy, but I never could quiet my love for nature, plants, and design.

For me, every new property brings on a new challenge and I enjoy taking on a wide range of projects from small city courtyards to sweeping country estates.

The Relationship.

Alive and ever-changing, gardens require careful consideration and planning to ensure they maintain their beauty, remain functional, and solve any technical constraints. My design process considers these requirements and respects all natural elements and unique microclimates to create a garden that reflects its owners.
