Here’s what our Clients have to say about Style Council service

“We want to say  –  Thank You!  We are extremely happy with the results of the all the hard work your friendly team produced under such personalised supervision.
You designed and brought to life our piece of paradise.

You worked so well with us taking all the concepts we had in mind and handcrafted it into one amazing outdoor living space. 

The attention to detail is phenomenal and the perfection shows – from the spectacular waterfalls and inviting rock pool, the tranquil pond for the fish and birds, the orchard and veggie patch that provide organic food for our family, the tree house and grass patch for our children and dogs to play and run on and the bursts of colour that come through in the naturally designed landscaping to our favourite spot, the fire pit, the place where we come together with family and friends to share love, light and warmth.
It all comes together so well and creates a harmony. Thank you for this incredible garden – We live in it. We play in it. We provide from it We love it ! ” 

Kind Regards,
Carol Kohne


+”The Eco Park has waterfalls, ponds, rock formations and river streams that make our development unique and exclusive.

They always delivered on time, within budget and assisted us in finding practical and cost effective solutions to various issues during the course of the project.

From us and the Nooitgedacht Village community we would like to thank Quentin Owen and the Style Council Exterior Design team for creating this amazing space, increasing the value of our properties as well as the lifestyle of our community.

A great investment!”

“My lovely wife convinced me to build my Dream Pond as she said i deserved to spoil myself. After our initial meeting with Quentin we decided to go ahead even though i was working overseas and left everything to Quentin and his team after being assured by them that everything was in good hands. I must say that his team were in daily contact with me throughout the entire project. 

The results as amazing.  Everyone who comes to the house just says Wow. The photos do not do it justice. Even after 1 and a half years, when i had a small issue with one of the rocks; Quentin was there immediately to fix it. 

Cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism. Can highly recommend him if You want that Something Special.”

Thank You. Ian Mainprize 

+”Nooitgedacht Village would like to sincerely thank Quentin and his team, who have transformed a quarry into a beautiful 2.4 Hectare Eco Park.

They are professional and practical in their approach and passionately assisted us to resolve many issues on site, while maintaining very high standards of service. Both in engineering ingenuity and artistic integrity.”

+”I have been a customer of Style Council for about 10 years and, during this time, they have created several water features for me. I find their creations a work of art and very realistic. The passion they put into their business shines through in their water features and, on top of this, they back up any maintenance with excellent after sales support.”
Gavin Harvey

+”Quentin and his team have created an amazing natural space that exceeded my expectations.
I explained my need for a useful, private area that attracts nature into the garden and he designed it perfectly.
I have no hesitation in recommending Style Council to anybody interested in creating a special outdoor space.”

+”I would like to take this opportunity to thank, and also commend you and your team for the outstanding design work and service we received.

Our garden was, to begin with quite stylish, with lush plants and a good layout. It worked for us, but we wanted more, so after much searching on the internet we found Style Council and from the word go you did not disappoint. From the design layout, complete with drawings, right till the point of completion, we (and our garden) received your utmost attention, which is reflected in the completed space. Your attention to detail and ability to transform the ordinary into extraordinary, is commendable. We will recommend Style Council to anyone who wishes to improve their lifestyle.”

Thanks to you and your team.
