Project Description

Sculptors Garden

The creation of outdoor spaces is as important as the house they surround. Our South African lifestyle is one of flow between interior and exterior and a well-designed garden creates focal points for rest, contemplation and socialising. Here we were presented with various extraordinary artworks by Wim Botha, Willem Boshoff and others, and a majestic Pin Oak around which to landscape the garden. An elliptical deck in the shape of a leaf was created around the base of the oak with one of the sculptures standing sentinel. A Wisteria-clad pergola adds height and screening to an otherwise plain elevation while a winding, gently ramped path links the spaces providing ever-changing views. A formalised set of planted steps provides a more direct approach.
