Top billing (June 2009) interviewed by Michael mole Architect Polo Estevez. Cutting Edge was praised for their indigenous garden design and the Pezula Private Estate situated in Knysna, Garden Route, South Africa. This project was challenging due to the ecological sensitivity of the area. Attention was paid to minimizing the disturbance to the natural environment by keeping their footprint as small as possible.


Garden design inspiration is drawn from shapes such as circles triangles and squares. The strong form and architectural design of each garden is emphasized by the use of indigenous plants, mosaics, rocks, wooden sleepers and other natural products. Gardens are transformed into calm peaceful and lush environments blending well with the nature that surrounds it. With 17 years’ experience behind Kobie she is moving closer to her ultimate goal of designing gardens all over South Africa.
