Have you ever heard about the story of the mustard seed? It starts out as the smallest seed but when sown, it grows into a large tree where the birds of the sky find shelter and peace.
This name does not only describe our company. Indeed, we are thrilled with the idea that as a mustard tree, our company started out very small and keeps growing larger to provide peace and a home to share with our people and customers. Nevertheless, MUSTARDTREE mainly describes our garden design and landscaping collaborators. The labourers
giving their whole heart and time into their job to satisfy customers' needs and dreams. We acknowledge them and their efforts. That's why, we've committed ourselves to professionally train them and pay them with a fair and generous wage.
It describes our customers. The people for whom we are kept awake day and night, being alert of the different possible ways that could help offering you your dream garden and a healthier outdoor lifestyle.
As we treat blue-collar workers with dignity and, in turn, they labour with us to provide customers with high service quality, we believe we contribute in honouring the core values of our landscape architecture profession while advancing the agenda for a better South Africa for all.

Rado Ratsima, MA, MM
JHB Branch Manager
Rado is a young designer and the Managing Director of SAINT-CASSIEN Landscapes, a subsidiary company operating in Johannesburg. He decided to labour in the field of landscape design and entrepreneurship after successfully completing a Masters of Arts in Landscape Studies, at the University of Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England. A Honours degree in Landscape Management awarded by University of Mauritius, a professional certificate in landscape design from Irene School of Garden Design, a Postgraduate Diploma in Management and a Masters of Management in Entrepreneurship and New Venture Creation awarded by Wits Business School are some of the other scholastic achievements adorning his shelf.
Originally from Madagascar, Rado left home at the age of 18 to travel and explore the world. His experience living in Mauritius and England for a couple of years, as well as winning garden and landscape design competitions in Argentina and South Africa shaped his outlook of the profession. As an academic, Rado's design philosophy can be summarised with this quote he loves sharing with colleagues: "If form follows function, then function should follow meaning. Meaning follows values. And values come from both the designer and customers' background. There should always be an evident meaning in what we do. Otherwise, we work in vain."
