So, if you’re eco conscious and want to do your bit for mother earth, no matter the size of your garden, you can produce a bountiful harvest of shrubs, flowers and vegetables.

If you need some great ideas on conserving water in your garden, the gardens this year have many inspirational ideas on this subject that are bound to make you want to plant a water-wise garden just because they are so gorgeous!

This garden demonstrates how easy it is to give your garden a completely new look, reviving and reusing items in imaginative ways.

The garden delights the senses with its use of bold colours and textures, the sound of soothing water and the sound of gravel crunching underfoot.

The planting in this garden has been divided into three water wise zones. It shows the correct zoning of different species of plants which have similar water requirements. This will save the home-owner money on their water bill.

'Growing more; in less'

Designer: Chris van Niekerk

Educational Garden

From a physical and aesthetic point of view, your quality of life is directly affected by the lack of “vegetation” in your living spaces.

No matter how tiny your outdoor space at home may be, it is possible for any person to produce home-grown edible products like herbs and vegetables or flowering plants. 

The idea is that even in the smallest space you can produce a bountiful harvest and extend the growing season.

From innovative vertical gardening systems to hanging pots and easy-access containers, the challenge is to make the most of any space available, even if it’s just a windowsill, balcony or piece of wall, to grow your own plants.

Growing your own food has many benefits:

• saving money;
• healthier, fresher, and better tasting food,
• knowledge of pesticide and fertilizer exposure.

Gardening is also a good form of exercise and has been proven to be therapeutic!

You can actually grow a lot more than you realize in really small areas as long as there is direct sun, no matter if it is against a vertical or an overhanging surface.

“Contained” gardens are extremely space efficient, making use of both vertical and horizontal space. Containers can also be moved throughout the day or seasons to suit the light needs of the plants.

What are my options?

Vertical gardening.  The options for vertical gardening are vast and require only some creativity.

• trellises from planters
• hanging planters
• hydroponics

Pots and containers.  Free standing pots and containers enable you to grow almost any vegetable and many varieties of fruit, given the right conditions and space.
