The pool garden

As the area surrounding our pool was very uninteresting, we built some raised gardens using coloured steel panels and pine sleepers, then filled the garden beds with 1½ cubic meters of compost enriched soil. The plants we selected included – Blueberry Ash, Photinia, Murraya (orange jessamine), Polygala, Strelizia (bird of paradise), Dietes and Rosemary.  We mass planted beside the fence on the north boundary with Chinese star jasmine.  A few garden ornaments, a Flowering Ash and pots of Indian hawthorn and long leaf Fig – ficus neriifolia – or (willow leaf fig), add interest and soften the area.
