With over 30 years experience, Botha Landscape is the premier landscaping service in the Adelaide Hills. If you don’t believe us, why not ask our clients?

Recently we decided to replace a much degraded lawn at the rear of our house and after having some trouble in seeking advice on what was required, a contact advised us to call “botha landscape” from Nairne, which we duly did.  The proprietor of the company, Andre Botha, made an appointment to come and inspect the site for us, which he did as promised.

Andre took us through what was required to prepare the base for the lawn to successfully grow on and the choice of lawn species that would be suitable. He also suggested that we have a below ground irrigation system installed as well, which we agreed to.  All of this he did in a very friendly and knowledgeable manner and within a few days we received a quote for the work which we happily accepted and were soon advised of the installation date.

On the installation day, all the equipment and materials were delivered and the work was carried out in a very expert and careful manner particularly as the excavator and loader had to be maneuvered through a carport on the end of the house with very limited space for access and in the lawn area as well which is surrounded by paving, none of which was disturbed.

Andre and his team worked extremely well together to complete the job and the clean up which left the area in an exceptionally tidy condition with out any sign of the fact that machinery and materials had been on site and most importantly the new lawn has really brightened up an area which was very unpleasant to look at. To finalise the job, Andre advised us of the watering and fertilizing requirements to ensure the lawn will grow successfully. Because of the above, we would thoroughly recommend Andre and his friendly expert team from “botha landscape” for any landscaping requirements.

Botha Landscape was recommended to me by Mount Barker Landscape and Rural Supplies. We needed an area of sloping garden to be cut into terraces. This required four retaining walls each about 800cm high and 10 metres long.

On first meeting, Andre Botha impressed me with his professionalism and his preparedness to consider a range of options for the job that needed to be done. I chose his company over others because of his life experience and general approach.

Throughout the job, Andre and his staff were always polite and communicated with me at all times. I was always clear as to when they would be back next, what was being done and why it was being done. They not only built the retaining walls but fixed all the watering system and made a couple of garden steps. They also installed tubular fencing and advised on the rural fencing that we were attempting ourselves.. At the end of the job all areas were cleaned up and left in a tidy state.

Andre went beyond my expectations, even lending me some equipment so that I could have the entire garden and courtyard ready for my husband’s birthday party. He also helped me calculate tonnage for mulch that I would need and freely gave advice when I requested it. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Botha Landscape for any outside job that you might need doing.

I put off replacing my retaining wall in Stirling because I knew it would be tricky and difficult, but most especially because I was very worried about the potential negative consequences for our garden, particularly an established deciduous tree with roots growing against the old retaining wall; but in 2015 I could put it off no longer!

From the outset, Andre listened to what I wanted to achieve, including adaptations to the existing footprint, completely understood the drainage needs from associated paving, was very respectful of my concern to preserve our plants and made excellent re-design suggestions. Most of the heavy work (which included removing about ten tonne of clay soil spill) had to be done by hand as much of the work occurred adjacent to a glass wall with less than 1 metre clearance and the space was too tight for machines; but at all times Andre’s staff were careful, cheerful and helpful. Even heavy rain at the worst possible time didn’t deter them. The job involved a combination of replacing approximately 60 meters of retaining wall and paving. The outcome is superb. We are thrilled with it and receive many compliments. I have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Botha Landscape and Irrigation.

 Mary, Stirling SA.

Just a short note to let you know how pleased both my wife and I are with the landscaping you have done for us.

The front lawn that you planted is now fully established and the irrigation service you installed has been a great time saver for us.

The back garden area has a complete new lease of life with a lush green lawn and the very workable irrigation system.

I am however, most pleased with the transformation of the lower garden area and the new plantings.

Thanks for a first class job!

It is now a pleasure to return home at the end of the day to my little house.

The garden and the patio are so inviting, I spend most of my time there.

You and the guys were so helpful! It has been a pleasure having you work on my landscaping.

Your plant selection has really made the area.

We were totally at a loss where to begin landscaping our new home.

The number of meetings we had with you inspired us, and slowly, we were able to understand how you imagined the garden.

The paving and retaining around the pool makes it a unique separate area.

I was particularly pleased with the outcome of the garden and lawns. Formal at the front and the cottage garden at the back.

As both my daughters (who never agree on anything) said: “Botha Landscape rocks!”

Once again thank you for your patience and the excellent work put in by your staff.

The paving and retaining that Botha Landscape installed at our home. Has been done both professionally and with little disruption to our lives.

Your co workers were always polite and helpful. The work area was always tidy and no rubbish left lying around. This impressed us to no end.

We will certainly recommend you to our friends and work colleagues and wish you well in your endeavours.

A job well done!

We were continuously impressed by the professionalism and dedication of Andre Botha and his team. At the planning stage, much flexibility was shown to tailor to our needs and budget, with Andre prepared to re-quote us upon request. A quality outcome is clearly important to this business. The guys worked tirelessly to complete the work within a tight schedule, and persevered through adverse conditions – natural and otherwise. We were kept appraised of any necessary changes throughout the job. We cannot recommend this landscaping service highly enough. Huge thanks to the guys involved.
