Who we are
Plantwise as a company was established in 1991, and over the years has expanded its capacity in its field as plant broker / exporter and consulting landscaper to include other areas in landscaping design, such as fencing, paving, construction and irrigation, among other products and services, on a large scale.
Where do we come from
Plantwise was created by entrepreneur Jenneth Prinsloo, who realized the need for a professional plant nursery acting as a broker and exporter of plants to a worldwide market. As an award winning qualified landscaper and horticulturalist, she soon expanded the business specialising in landscaping consultancy, construction and developments. Based on a farm and nursery in Krugersdorp outside of Johannesburg, the business has grown to be able to handle massive landscaping, construction and area rehabilitation projects, incorporating a strong core team and a large workforce.
What we do
Now driven as a group of companies, Jenneth and Plantwise can provide a turnkey solution in landscaping design, consultancy and plant & tree provision for these projects. She is also a key provider of mentorship, education and development in the agricultural community for young black entrepreneurs reaching towards goals in the industry. The companies in the fold, pride themselves in eco-friendly and professional products and services in all areas, providing un-matched top quality service, dedication and deliveries on a large or small scale to both private individuals, local and national government and international organizations and locations.
