Garden 7 - A Measure of FormalityGarden 7 - A Measure of FormalityA ‘Sense of Place’ is the theme for this year’s Spring Festival at Garden World from Friday July 27 to Sunday September 2. The challenge to landscapers creating the 17 show gardens is to design gardens with mood, atmosphere and personal style. Participating landscapers include last year’s People’s Choice winner, Lizette Nieman of Strylitzia Landscapes, and other gold medal winners as well as new landscapers. The popular children’s gardens will be featured as well as display gardens by Rand Water and the SA National Botanical Gardens.

This year our show garden theme ‘A Sense of Place’ is all about capturing what makes a space unique - it’s the mood, the sense of identity, the stirring of emotion and imagination to capture what makes an outdoor space special. Each garden this year tells a story, reflects a lifestyle which speaks to how people feel about and experience garden spaces. 2018 Garden trends indicate a keen interest in succulents and other plants that are tolerant of dry conditions, indigenous gardening, and healthy living / edible gardening – all of which will be featured this year.
