Location: Oranjezicht, Cape Town
Completed: June 2018
BRIEF: A wild, natural, whimsical garden with a natural pool and entertainment areas to be used as an AirBnB.
CHALLENGES: Drought conditions, rocky soil, steep incline, limited space.
SOLUTIONS: Rainwater tanks were installed for irrigation. Drought resistant local fynbos species were planted. Thick mulch helps to maintain soil moisture. A local wood carving artist was enlisted to carve sculptures out of the felled pines. Rock from the site was incorporated into garden features.
