‘We live in the Cape and as a result of the drought, my garden is a dust bowl. Not only does it look dreadful but my interior is looking grubby too. How can I change things up?’ How about extending your inside to the outside? A wooden deck will take care of some of your grassless garden and if you covered it with a permanent or semipermanent roof, you could add some furniture and extend your home’s footprint. You’ll also be able to enjoy life alfresco, just with less dust. PS: Look out for wood-look plastic composite decking – it really does look like real wood and at a fraction of the price.
