Carl Fourie has had a love for plants since he was 5 years old and he already started landscaping as a hobby during his primary school years.
After high school he studied in Pretoria at TUT and is now a qualified landscape architect.
Carl has worked for large companies in the city, such as Eksklusiewe Tuine, Topturf and works with Servest.
He was also the project manager of the Mooi River Mall’s gardens in conjunction with Real Landscapes (now Servest).
In Mauritius he also built golf courses and created gardens with Top Turf.
It is no surprise that with all of his qualifications and experience, Carl decided to start up his own business.
In 2006 Carl founded Impression Landscapes and today it is a flourishing business.
Impression Landscapes is sought after by office blocks, doctor’s rooms and large exclusive homes.
The company also works alongside the municipalities of Matlosana and Kenneth Kaunda. The N12 Beautification Project is a good example of the excellent work that Carl and his team are capable of. The municipality approached Carl directly to work on the project. He was not only the project manager, but the actual design was also his own.
Impression Landscapes focusses on quality and attention to detail in all undertakings – providing the assurance of a highly experienced and professional team and good communication through each phase of the project.
Landscaping: The use of modern design concepts and indigenous plant material will serve to attract wildlife to your garden while providing a sensory appealing garden for you to enjoy. Hiring a landscaper to create your garden is much the same as hiring a builder to build your home. Whether you’re creating a new garden, or remodelling an old one, a professional landscaper has the experience and knowledge required to ensure that the job is done correctly the first time.
Not only is it important to match the design elements to your requirements (and to the look and feel of your home), it is also important to select the correct plant material. Plant loss within the first few seasons due to incorrect planting methods, positioning or conditions can be costly. Hard landscaping projects (paving, building, decking,etc) usually require experience and attention to detail to ensure they are installed correctly. Your professional landscaper will have the necessary expertise on board their team to carry this work out for you.
Everyone is different and so are the needs when it comes to what is expected from outdoor areas. Your garden is a place where you can enjoy spending time with nature enjoying your property to the fullest – The right garden design will help you live in your garden!
