An existing Bougainvillea and a neighbouring Ficus created an almost-ready morning coffee nook, we just topped it off with a paved circle to fine tune the seating arrangements. A path was created to the side of the residence and the majority of the space planted up with hardy indigenous shrubs to provide year round interest and colour. Denzil says the garden is alive with bees, birds and other insects – a little ecological oasis that celebrates life everyday.
