"Birds of a Feather Flock Together" by Tomelo Choma & Faith Mashaba of The Gap

Inspiration: The contemporary landscape design of this garden allows it to explore a natural dimension by drawing inspiration from the South African Masked Weaver bird (Ploceus velatus).

This is evident in the repetition of displaying vibrant shades of yellow and red colours in the garden features.

The painted wall best displays the fusion of colours i.e. when these birds flock together. Like the Masked Weaver, that has different coloured eggs in their nests, the colourful garden is an inspiring colourful and emotive space.

The spaces within the garden create a sense of different rooms.

"Welcoming Joy" by Tasha Tollman of DIY Garden Designer & John Sauer of Ngena Succulents
Media partner: SA Garden & Home

Inspiration: “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.” – Rumi

The patio in this design takes centre stage with its sleek, contemporary lines, while the wall water feature forms a soothing backdrop. These set the scene for relaxed entertainment, welcoming the joy that comes from spending fun times with family and friends into the garden.

A flowing river of succulents leads the eye through the design highlighting the diversity and beauty of the different succulent forms, textures and colours on its banks.

A final element of joy is welcomed into this garden with its low maintenance and low water needs, saving time, money and preserving our precious water resource.
