Steep incline planting

Bishopscourt is a beautiful old neighbourhood in the heart of Cape Town. It is renowned for its massive old trees and stunning country houses. Living on the mountainside also has its challenges and one of these are the steep driveways…

JJ Landscapes approached us to plant 5 x 1000-litre Ficus benjamina (Weeping Fig) trees for their client in Bishopscourt. The challenge was the access to the planting site. We had to enter the neighbour’s property which was still under construction. The soil on a construction site is usually very loose which also poses a challenge when you have very heavy trucks, loaded with trees, that you need to get through to the other side. The most challenging part of the installation was the almost 45 degree angle that we had to park and plant the trees from. Using our small Isuzu to “hold on” to our large 4×4 MAN crane truck, we managed to get all 5 trees into their new home safe and sound. It required nerves of steel as the truck groaned and inched forward a few times.


With over 30 years experience, you can be rest assured that we will get the job done.
