About the city

The capital city of the province of the Free State, the city of Bloemfontein translates to "fountain of flowers" as it is known for their streaming lands of flowers. The city has also gained the nickname of 'The City of Roses'. Bloemfontein has much to offer for its visitors such as its Rose Festivals, tea gardens, cycling tours and even the Loch Logan waterfront. Many events and social functions held in the city of Bloemfontein, are generally designed and focused on the floral, rose theme that the city is so well-known for. 

Areas in and around Bloemfontein area  namely known as Waverely, Westdene, Dan Pienaar, Pentagon Park and Mandela View to name a few. The typical Bloemfontein home consists of three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a seemingly large garden space. These homes are usually priced between R800 000 and can go all the way up to R6 million. Gardens in Bloemfontein are famously admired for their spectacular species of wild flowers and their natural landscaping style, that allows the plants to grow wildly instead of a more structured, and manicured garden. 

What is a landscape architect?

 A landscape architect is so much more than what many people think is simply a glorified gardener. These architects are skilled designers of outdoor areas which include city landmark areas such as the botanical gardens, they are also professional designers who seek to achieve behavioural and social aesthetic spaces that aim to fulfill environmental beauty for public and private consumption. 

These skilled professionals are responsible for site planning and design which are very demanding, time consuming as well as complex jobs that require a certain level of knowledge on landscaping and agriculture. The landscaping and professional gardening industry is one that attains profits of over R1 billion as of the year 2015, and growing what with the rise of the South African middle class home owner. 

What services do landscape architects offer?

The landscape architect can design anything from a private home garden to a multi-million rand commercial property with many gardens and parks, for example, a large company building or a residential estate where hundreds of homes are built. The architect can offer services ranging from conducting preliminary studies of the site including contours, soil, ecology, buildings, roads and heritage sites, to putting work out to tender, selecting a contractor and manager, mainly for larger projects, and leading cross-functional teams for landscape projects.
