These include gorgeous deep purple Poppies, Cornflowers and cosmos as well as perennials such as Salvia, Verbena and Rudbeckia to mention a few.
A traditional Werf Muur surrounds a lawn close to the home. Here an unusual and exceptional swimming pool is positioned and surrounded with a wonderful planting detail set within gum sleepers. This provides a rather contemporary element which melts quite naturally into the garden.
The swimming pool appears rather more like a natural pond and is perfectly inviting. A traditional perennial garden runs along the Southern end of this terrace and one is guided through it along a pathway which immerses you in it’s detail drawing on the classic perennial border’s of English country gardens.
Grape vines of the world famous Vin de Constance flow from the surrounding Klein Constantia vineyards into the garden providing a seamless link to the surrounds.
A rose garden filled with the most beautifully fragrant collection of picking and climbing roses is set out in an enclosed area along the North facing wing of the home. A narrow pathway draws you through this passage of fragrance and colour flanked by a dry stone wall and a collection of flowering perennials.
Pencil cypress’s guard the rose garden and frame a series of views of the landscape beyond.
