The Area and Site
The house is situated in an exquisite mountainous area. This home blends in well with the surrounding environment. The ground is slightly sloping (good for drainage). Services on the site include municipal services, irrigation system, sewage pipes and sanitation. Electricity had to be laid on for the garden lighting.
Front Yard Landscape Design Description
You enter the front garden via the Dining Room verandah (stoep). The view from the dining room window is framed. In the frame, a warthog and pebble water fountain is seen.
Behind the fountain are mixed plantings. These plantings are carried through into the circular beds. This creates harmony, unity and rhythm in the design.
The circular shapes draw your eyes toward a solid wooden bridge. A bark pathway leads to an ecological pond. The pond draws wild life to the garden.
The deciduous tree provides shade during the summer, and allows sunlight to filter through during winter. The bench, under the tree, provides a suitable spot for relaxation.
This backyard forms part of a larger garden design. The complete design includes a backyard design plan, a front yard design plan and a courtyard design plan.
