‘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.
