Streetscape / Greening projects

In Joint Venture with Marian Louw Landscape Architects and Blueprint Landscape Architecture, KH Landscape Architects completed the beautification of six town entrances for the City of Ekurhuleni in 2016 and early 2017. The design theme called for tall vertical elements that will assist with place-making and entrance definition.

KH Landscape Architects designed a streetscape master plan for various road centre islands and road intersections in the CBD of Randfontein.

The landscape design called for strong vertical elements and a colour theme that was repeated along the route.

Planting design required hardy, robust and low maintenance plants.
