Many of Mia’s gardens have featured in some of South Africa’s top garden, landscaping and décor magazines, including Garden and Home, Visi, Landscape SA and Footprint Limited.
Mia’s success as a landscaper lies in her dedication to her clients and ability to uncover what they really want – she gets to know the clients’ likes and dislikes and finds out what they have in mind for the garden. She also visits the site and analyses the property with regard to sun, site position, type of soil, land levels, drainage restraints, municipal by-laws and estate rule and regulations. After this, the concept of the garden is designed, plans are drawn up and the garden is implemented. Mia’s specialty is creating a ‘complete’ garden, one that works harmoniously with nature rather than against it.
She is acutely conscious of our fragile environment and the need to value precious resources like water, and ensures that insects, birds and butterflies are part of the mix of every garden she creates. She also puts a lot of emphasis on applying organic matter to improve the soil
