Paradise gardens can be easy to create. Ensure you understand your sun and shade requirements. As a focal point always use a pot water feature. There are excellent kits you can get from Waterstone Garden Centre on Witkoppen road.
The following are some ideas for your paradise garden:
Always use focal points away from the entertainment area so as to lead the eye to the furthest part in a small garden. This also reduces the sound of water to a gentle trickling sound.
Water Features – Use a pebble pond so the water is not seen and is safe for children. These are low maintenance and easy to install by yourself. Just ensure you have an electrical point.
Some plants to use in your paradise garden should produce a lush and tropical feel. If you are in a cold area ensure you have cold resistant plants although high walls and large trees will protect tree ferns.
Trees and Palms to use:
Leopard Tree Natal Lavender
Shrubs and Large Plants to use:
Cycas Revoluta Strelitzia
Philodendron Xanadu Nandina Domestica
