Village Gardens is a family run business owned by Tracey Cole,
with the assistance of two experienced female landscapers
and a team of great “blokes” lead by George Chimuti as well as an irrigation chap.
Since we started in the past few years our business has grown
tremendously providing garden designs and edible gardens
for people in the Southern Suburbs and Cape Town CBD.
Our passion is gardens whether it be waterwise, indigenous
or just pretty however we do specialize in Edible gardens
which seems to becoming more popular every day. I firmly
believe that with the cost of food going up in price and the
overproccessing of edibles we buy in the supermarket we
should all think about growing our own. I understand life is
busy and people generally don’t have the time to plant, grow
and go out at night with a head torch on to kill the pests on
their cabbage. However it does not have to be like that and
one can have village gardens design and create their garden
and give continuous guidance after the garden has been
planted. There is a spray I make and use for all my veg, organic
spray which will last for at least 6 months and I give to clients
free of charge… this spray works on pests so you can bin the
As well as creating gardens and edible gardens we also
maintain gardens on a seasonal basis. This would include
seasonal pruning, dead heading fertilizing and composting
also replacing of plants if required. This is an important aspect
for the garden and we are able to decipher what a weed and
an alien invasive plant looks like and remove them.
Village gardens can also take the pressure of you going to the
local nursery to buy plants when we can just deliver them for
you, we can even source the plant/s you require and deliver
them to your doorstep.
