The Sakuteiki 11th Century Japanese Garden Manual

Paul Paarman is a born a bred Capetonian and knows the lay of the land and the myriad of micro climates in and around Cape Town. His number one teacher has been nature, along with the gardeners of ancient Japan. Paul believes that the best place to get in touch with your soul is in the garden. His first consultation is always free  so give him a call and spend an hour with him in your garden.
Simon Kachuma of Katlego Landscapes recently joined forces with Paul to offer a wider scope of services. As a full BEE company we are looking at re-entering the tender market, offering the attention to detail that comes with years of experience in the high end domestic market. Projects include Starke Conde Wine Estate (Signature garden), V&A Waterfront, Cape Town Stadium and many more.

Professional Services

Landscape Design

Our design team works closely with architects and clients to design a garden that accentuates the building lines and meets the unique needs of our clients. No job is to big or small and we guarantee you a very competitive rate that can be incorporated into the overall design and construction cost.


Landscape Installations

We have been creating gardens in and around Cape Town and the wine lands since 1994. Our knowledgeable team can transform any space into a beautiful garden, that suits your unique taste and budget. With ever changing styles of gardens we are currently very involved in creating gardens that can withstand long periods of drought. Combining the five principles of Japanese gardens, raked gravels, boulders with our unique flora we have created our own brand of African Zen Gardens that will last for generations.

Decking and gazebo's

Our amazing decking team can turn any dead space into a work of art that is functional and built with the best materials by true craftsmen.


Professional Services

Tree Felling

Our amazingly experienced team will take on any job big or small and love a challenge. We are fully insured should any unforeseen circumstance arise but watching Bongani, Richard and the team work is something to behold and safety is our number one priority.



We specialize in creating beautiful paved area's. We come highly recommended as a Revelstone approved installer. For a different way at looking at paving and for a free quotation give us a call.


We only use the best turf from Synsport. The Synscape Lux and Petscape are our current favourites. We take extra care in our preparations, laying a solid but well drained sub base onto which we lay our turf. In our current drought conditioned this is by far the best way to have a green turf all year mud, no watering, no mowing, no fertilisers or bald patches..just green and the peace of mind that it has been laid by professionals.


Water Harvesting and Grey Water Systems

The drought has created some amazingly positive spin offs. In an effort to help save our gardens we have now become experts in the installation of grey water as well as rain water harvesting. We install filtration systems to produce potable water and do a full reticulation into your home.
