I was given Mark Norris' name by a friend. I phoned and we made an appointment which he kept and was on time. Doesn't happen very often these days. We discussed what I would like done and within a couple of days I had the quote and a drawing of the proposed new site. Mark and his workers arrived early on the agreed day. His workers worked extremely hard even though the weather certainly wasn't conducive to manual labour. They continually cleaned up after themselves and by the afternoon had finished the cleaning up and reshaping my existing garden. I also had splendid new look in my courtyard and the new site looked wonderful and I have many compliments about it. I would not hesitate to recommend Mark and his staff.
I was and remain a hopeless gardener so until Mark of Mark Norris Landscapes started work on my garden the success rate with the plants I sporadically planted could not have been more than 20%. All the topsoil and fertilizer I used over the years to try to restore our lawn washed down into our neighbour’s lush garden whenever it rained. Thanks to Mark’s green fingers we now have a well grassed lawn and are working at improving the garden step by step, but it already enhances our home from the outside. It’s a worthwhile investment to leave it to the experts.

This residential gated estate was established some years ago. The new developers were very serious about the Development and had a boundary wall with a Gate House and Club House built. We needed to make a statement at the entrance and we had looked at different landscape Consultants/contractors. We chose Mark Norris Landscapes as their price was very competitive and was amenable to work with our budget, which was most important. We also found Mark to be very approachable and very accommodating to our requirements. His recommendations and choice of plants was easily accepted by our Client. We had site inspections while Mark was busy on site and we have found that he was very amenable to changes.
We have built a very good working relationship with Mark and we will not hesitate to recommend Mark Norris Landscapes to our new Clients.

We offer a number of landscaping services, namely:
Consultation and Design
Landscape Design Implementation
Step 1 -
An initial consultation is essential before any planning or design work can take place. We will discuss your requirements and assess the property.
Step 2 -
Once this has taken place an idea is born which will be functional, aesthetically pleasing and symbolic of our knowledge and your needs. These initial landscape design stages often include physical samples of hard landscaping (i.e type and colour of tiles, textures and shapes of pots etc.) sizes and examples of plant materials, conceptual layout, and 3D renderings.
Step 3 -
Once a workable design is achieved it is put to paper and then an itemised bill of quantities is derived from it. All this planning is necessary before any work can take place to ensure that a unique and pleasing piece of work is created. Please read our testimonials on our landscaping projects.
We handle the removal /relocation of trees and palms using the industry’s best methods and equipment. This can be achieved depending on project requirements and site limitations. This is a specialized line of work which can lead to instant and breathtaking results.
Some of our Bigger projects include:
Once an agreed-upon landscape design is accepted, the groundbreaking can begin.
This is the fun part for some clients and the stressful part for others as it has to get worse before it gets any better.
Often times the more the landscape design pushes the envelope, the more stressful it can become on site. Implementation of a well-designed plan often far exceeds the client's expectations, which is why it's essential for the client and designer to connect during the initial consultation phase.
This is the client’s chance for us to do the necessary extras. Safe and correct application of both herbicide and insecticides, soil samples and fertilizing, mulching and or composting of beds, spiking & top dressing and other more specialized maintenance practices are included in our maintenance service program.
We offer our turf management services for bigger residential, commercial and recreational turfed areas. These include spring treatments, de-thatching/scarifying, topdressing, fertilizer applications (both granular and liquid applications), insecticides and herbicides applications and preparation of new seedbeds.
