African Style Gardens
This is a new page for those wishing to introduce an African theme to their backyard landscapes, perhaps as a water conserving alternative to the popular Balinese style garden.
So many popular garden plants come from the African continent (and nearby islands), there are many to choose from. You might have some in your garden already. However, the focus here is on an aesthetic style. Therefore plants from other regions, including some Australian natives, could be substituted.
More ideas for plants to include in an African-style garden coming in future updates.
One of the things you'll want to consider if developing an African-style garden is a round or oval gazebo with neat African-style thatching. There are many businesses now supplying this style of thatching in reed, grass, or synthetic materials, or the entire structures.
