A few months ago we were awarded with the assignment for a truly water wise minimalist garden that hardly needs any maintenance. The owners are not gardeners but like to enjoy the outdoor in their spare time off. The garden, exclusive the house measures around 700 square meters which we leveled, than put a root cloth on it plus a layer of 10 cm gravel. The sides are bordered with wood logs and a strip of one meter with Diamondia grass. Also the parking spaces and the drive way (filled with wood chips) are bordered with wooden logs. Around this garden we planted some indigenous aloes amongst the existing fynbos. All materials are sourced locally (wood logs and chips virtually on the spot).
