Freelance ecologist Tania Anderson designs ecological gardens. She designed and planted the vertical garden at House Miller in Parktown North, Johannesburg. This green wall garden is entirely south facing. The plants were chosen by the designer with input from the client to suit the shady aspect and attract insects and birds.
The best results are achieved when one knows how to plant a tree correctly. The time and effort taken to plant your tree correctly will pay off handsomely when you have a beautiful, well-structured and healthy tree in your garden.
A properly planted tree will grow faster, stronger and healthier.
The best way to create a small bird friendly garden is simply to give the birds what they need… places to feed, nest, rest and breed. If you design a garden around these requirements, using indigenous food-bearing plants, birds will flock to your garden.
Birds will visit even the smallest gardens, provided that these basic needs are catered for. In other words, you need to create a great habitat (a place that can provide for all these needs).
Create a beautiful small garden, using indigenous plants of South Africa. Random Harvest Indigenous Plant Nursery constantly inspires with new display gardens, and this time we have presented no less than five beautiful small gardens ideas.
