Trees for Swimming Pools
For over 20 years internationally known Africa Yarona has operated as a loose association of 15 artists. Their name means "this beautiful Africa of ours".
For the months of September and October some of their beautiful sculpture will be displayed and sold from Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery.
When I looked at this art, It is so quintessentially Africa, particularly Southern African, that I felt it would fit in beautifully with our indigenous plants. The varied textures and colours of the plants lend themselves well to hand crafted, organic garden sculpture.

Recommended Indigenous Trees for Pools - Part Five
I am regularly asked to recommend trees for around a swimming pool. Most people ask for an evergreen tree.
I would like to make an argument for deciduous trees. Remember that although trees may be evergreen they do drop the old leaves and grow new ones and this is an ongoing process throughout the year, while a deciduous tree drops all its leaves in a short space of time.
