House and Leisure (South Africa) - - Leisure Garden -

Sym­me­try pro­vides struc­ture, as seen in the mir­rored cy­presses and borders of the gravel gar­den; lush, cool fo­liage thrives be­neath the canopy of trees. Here, wine-coloured canna leaves con­trast with the fresh greens of ferns and yel­low Iris pseu­do­corus; pas­toral pretty meets African for­est in this mix of deep-yel­low abu­tilons over a per­gola un­der­planted with smaller ferns and yel­low clivias. OP­PO­SITE PAGE Built by Jenny and Naas un­der an old oak, an ob­long pond with wa­ter spouts and a Chi­nese proverb cre­ates a sense of seren­ity.
