Oak Hill

A relaxed, informal garden for a family who enjoy the outdoors and have a love of our indigenous floral kingdom. The garden has a strong 3-dimensional quality, as it was sculpted out of a previously bland gradient. An extended lawn platform adjacent to the house, connects to the lower lawn via grass embankments and curvilinear stone lawn terraces. Within a valley created, a small ‘mountain’ stream was introduced which terminates in an oval reflective pond. Planting is almost entirely indigenous and intricate. Grasses are used to great effect as the linking element between Woodland, and Fynbos zones.
