Red Daffodil’s highly successful garden at Ruyterplaats Mountain Estate in Hout Bay is an excellent example of the type of project with which we have been able to assist Chris.
“This was quite a challenging site” says Chris, “It’s a steep bank that receives a fair amount of wind and although the trees were only planted in October, they have shown superb, vigorous growth. All Rudi’s trees are organically grown, a factor of very high value to us, and the fact that they don’t need to be staked is also of immense importance. TreeCo’s growing standards are quite unique in Cape Town in that respect. We like the fact that none of the trees are ever root bound in their bags and his stock is very competitive in the market when you compare the size of the trees, their bag size and TreeCo’s prices".
TreeCo is the only nursery in the Cape Town area where large (200kg) multi stemmed Olive trees can be found. Chris has used them in 2 gardens so far and is thrilled. “Both were situations where using a crane was not possible, but these multi-stemmed olives have provided us with the mature look we desired, while still being small enough to be moved by hand. Their growth is also fantastic once in the ground”.
"We have always loved the outstanding, personal service that has become synonymous with TreeCo. Rudi is completely honest about what stock he has available and, if he feels that the quality of the trees that I have requested is not yet up to standard he will spend time to advise me on alternative options, plus he has introduced me to a couple of new species I had not previously considered. Where delivery is concerned, TreeCo is 100% reliable; and they will go the extra mile to ensure I get my trees, even if I have given them only 24hrs notice. After completion, Rudi will follow up to check on the condition of the trees for months afterwards. No matter what project we are involved in, TreeCo works together with us like a partner as opposed to just being a supplier”.
A final word from TreeCo: Rudi and Leske would like to thank Chris for his feedback – we value all and any feedback we receive for clients as this assists us to hone our services and product range where required, as well as confirm whether we are on the right track or not. We thank all our clients again for their loyal support.
Remember that Rudi and Leske are simply a phone-call away should you require any information, or advice whatsoever. We always look forward to hearing from you!
