Since revamping my own vegetable garden at home, I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting garden designs in urban spaces. I was recently invited to Majeka House in Stellenbosch and was most impressed with their garden. Interestingly, it was designed by the same guy, Jehaan, that did the gardens at Babylonstoren. It’s the first time I’ve come across raised beds as high as these. It makes picking so easy and looks striking too. Thought I’d share these pics with you (keeping in mind this is a winter garden, it’s pretty impressive!):
LOVE the espalliered fruit trees in this last pic – it’s such clever usage of a relatively small space.

PS I’m always on the search for inspiring urban food gardens, so if you know of any, I’d love to know about it.
