EP Landscape is a full-service landscape design and installation company established in 2000 by Gert Smit. The company was initially known as Earth Projects and is a culmination of 16 years horticulture and landscaping experience.

Gert comes from a proud family of plant lovers, his father dedicated his life to viticulture and vineyard research and his mother was a keen gardener. Gert feels privileged that his passion for nature and plants was inherited, leading him to pursue a career in horticulture.

Gert is a graduate from Cape Technicon where he obtained two national diplomas, one in Horticulture and the other in Landscape Technology. During his time at Cape Tech he worked as a research assistant and obtained a prestigious bursary from S.A.L.I (South African Landscape Institute). He was also invited to attend the international Kenya Tree Project.

After completing his studies he spent some further time in Kenya gathering data for the department as well as investing more time in the Kenya Tree Project Over the years Gert has held positions within industry leading corporate companies acquiring further skills in marketing, sales, rehabilitation, research and project management. He worked as a subcontractor for several established landscaping firms and gained solid experience working on numerous large scale projects.

He gained valuable irrigation experience within some of the country's leading turf technology and landscaping firms, spending many years with one of the most innovative and recognised companies nationwide. Irrigation became an important part of his work which lead to him being involved in the design and installation of the irrigation system at Grand West Casino.

It was around this time that Gert decided to utilise all the experience, knowledge and skills he had gained from working with some of the industry's leading professionals, to start designing and installing his own gardens.....

EP Landscape is a proud business with proud people, who all share the same passion, commitment and love towards plants as well as to creating beautiful gardens. The majority of its staff have been part of the setup since the company was formed - creating a trusted, experienced and highly skilled team. Each member of the team is a specialist in his field. Over time this has formed a cohesive unit able to undertake a multitude of highly specialised projects, delivering an uncompromised service and an end product of premium quality.
