A serene seating areaA serene seating areaSustainable water-wise gardening is imperative in South Africa today and entirely possible to achieve, as shown by a lovely garden created by the South African Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Garden. It even allows space for some edibles!

Gardens are forever growing and evolving, requiring filling in for seasonal colour and perhaps the odd trimming. With a well-established garden it is easy to implement a new look and feel by making a few simple changes. And, if you saw last year’s gardens which have been re-vamped, you will be certain to want to do some changes to your existing garden.

One really fantastic re-vamp is by Stephen Mundell – just look how beautiful everything has grown!

Educational Garden

This garden design is about sustainable and water-wise gardening.

South African Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) is one of the leading environmental institutes, and one of our objectives is to educate people about the importance and promotion of our own indigenous plants in garden design.

We all know that South Africa is faced with drought and food security issues which are directly related to poverty. It is imperative that, as SANBI we promote water-wise and sustainable gardening. In our garden design we have used drought resistant plants such as Aloes and Euphorbia. As part of our design we have included a wetland and biodiversity section as a way to attract animal life into our garden in order to promote a healthy ecosystem.
