Carel describes his garden as ‘informal, wild, a touch eccentric – mostly indigenous with a smattering of exotic visitors.’ He only began serious gardening when he and his wife moved from ‘up country’ into their Cape Town house and is now so passionate he finds it hard to resist buying new and interesting plants – as can be seen in the selection on the table. It’s a small, very natural lawn-less garden through which paths meander. A stepping stone path leads through a mini forest to an open sunny area where succulents and aloes predominate. Further on is a fynbos area which leads to a wooden deck overlooking a spectacular eco -swimming pool set against the back drop of Constantiaberg.
