Highveld Estate, Johannesburg
This Garden received a Merit Award from ILASA.
“The Landscape design imitates the surrounding landscape affectively through the application of carefully considered plant species in well-designed thresholds. The non-burning veld fire buffer around the house is functional and resolves maintenance and safety challenge involved in tying residential gardens into Highveld grassland settings. The design of the Highveld House roof garden is exceptional. The successful use of local flora is commended and this applies to the entire project which utilises the full spectrum of qualities on offer in a Highveld landscape. The design is appropriate in terms of architecture and place”. Urban Green File. June 2011.
