Umhlanga Project


We were given free reign to design and install a remarkable garden and roof garden that would complement this equally remarkable new home.  Taking the property’s proximity to the coast into consideration, as well as the owner’s lifestyle and aesthetic preferences, Simon Clements: Garden & Landscape Design designed a garden that includes mass planting of Aloe barberae (tree aloe) and an avenue of Acacia xanthophloea.  Large berms thickly planted with a selection of low growing aloes and succulents have been created to provide screening from the neighbours.  It is envisioned that the garden becomes awash with colour in the winter months, while remaining sleek and cool in the hot summer months.
