This is a low maintenance, natural garden which is situated in Brettenwood Coastal Estate in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. The garden has a mixture of indigenous and endemic plants. The garden also contains a water attenuation pond where rainwater collects and slowly seeps away after the rain, managing stormwater on site, while creating a wetland for the plants during rainy seasons. Most hard surfaces such as the paths are permeable for maximum surface water infiltration, enhancing on site stormwater management. The garden was completed at the end of 2012.
