Our latest homify 360° discovery comes to us from Acton Gardens, professional landscape designers in Johannesburg. The project that they’ve agreed to share with us? A country-style garden taking up prime space at a country-style home in Midrand, with all the right features and touches to ensure not only a visually splendid outdoor design, but also one that can teach us a few tips and tricks when it comes to eco-friendly gardening.

A striking entrance

Pretty planters

Adding to this garden’s delicious rustic/country look are these recycled wood planters, with their warm brown-orange hues offsetting most delightfully with the lush green plants.

Cute, but also clever

Harvesting rainwater is definitely a step in the right direction, especially in today’s “green” age, but when was the last time you saw a rainwater tank being done up so stylishly like this garden pond?

Colours galore
