It took time for Julie to come up with an idea to make something worthwhile of this challenging and narrow space at the back of her house.
Things are progressing. It is paved, with stepping areas floating above gravel which allows water to permeate the soil again. Climbers in pots have just reached the trellis she made, and her potting table is installed.
To see the garden, post-transformation, visit it on our Open Garden Constantia days: 14th and 15th November
