About Elainscape International

Elainscape International has been supplying both interior and exterior landscape services to satisfied clients throughout South Africa for a number of years.

At the helm is Elaine Skidmore, who not only has the necessary horticultural knowledge and technical skills, but has proved her ability to generate creative solutions to needs, time and again.

Our practice endeavours to realize its clients' needs, be they personal or commercial, and to integrate these with all the external factors influencing the design.  As one of  the first practices in South Africa committing itself to CAD (computer aided  draughting), we constantly avail ourselves of leading edge technology.  This enables us to render clients a level of service that is superior in every aspect.

Elainscape International is in the process of opening an international office in London.  With a fifteen year track record in South Africa, this international move will now offer their unique design service to clients around the world.
