A decision was made years ago to plant indigenous, borne out of both a growing interest in South Africa's huge array of native plants as well as being accutely aware of the need to cut down on water use.

I'm certainly no horticulturalist, and the rambling, almost unkempt, indigenous garden has been developed over years of not knowing what to do!

If plants survived, they were kept.
If they died, el experimento continuó!

We're a big believer in nature providing calm, and the one goal we did have when creating what we have today, was a peaceful refuge.
A garden which helped one forget about the daily stress of living in a city.
A goal which we believe we have achieved!

In our effort to work with nature, we sanitise the pool with ozone, clear the streets of autumn leaves to use as mulch in the garden, recycle household waste, use energy saving bulbs inside and out and use the sun for our hot water.
