The Area and Site description
The house is situated in a gorgeous mountainous area.
The home blends in well with its surrounding environment.
The ground has a slightly slope to it (good for drainage).
Services on the site include the normal household services i.e. municipal services, irrigation system,
sewage pipes and sanitation. Electricity had to be instaled for the garden lighting.
Front Yard Landscape Design Description
The main entrance to the front garden is via the Dining Room verandah (stoep).
The view of the garden is framed by the dining room window. As you look through the window frame,
a warthog and pebble water fountain is seen.
Behind the fountain we have mixed plantings.
These plantings are continued through to the circular beds.
This creates harmony, unity and rhythm through out the design.
The circular shapes will draw your eyes toward the solid wooden bridge.
A bark chip pathway leads to an ecological pond. The pond helps to draws wild life to the garden.
The deciduous tree will provide shade during those summer days,
and allows sunlight to filter through during the winter months.
The bench, placed under the tree, provides a suitable spot for relaxation.
This backyard forms part of a much larger garden design.
The complete design will include a backyard design plan
, a front yard design plan
and a courtyard design plan
