This one-hectare Winterskloof garden is set on a steep, east-facing slope. Colourful borders on either side of a central lawn are filled with roses and shrubs as well as many interesting perennials and clematis, designed to supply colour and interest all year round.
A natural spring supplies water to a small pond which flows over a waterfall into a peaceful woodland area filled with indigenous trees.
