It is psychologically rewarding to bond with nature and in Southern Africa we are blessed with an incredibly diverse range of flora and fauna to appeal to our sixth sense.   We don’t need to leave our homes to do this as so much of this natural beauty already surrounds us.

As a landscaper, who specialises in indigenous, wildlife-friendly gardens, I draw my inspiration from nature and strive to create gardens that contribute to the biodiversity of an area.  In my journey, I see spectacular plants and the fascinating creatures that co-exist with them.

This plant book shares a constantly growing collection of the marvels that I’ve encountered.  I hope it will give you an increased appreciation of our indigenous flora and fauna and spur you into restoring the natural ecology of the area in which you live.
