Soekie Fourie – 3 Marais street, Hennenman
By making use of a large variety of plants and natural elements, this garden is an experience for the senses. It is hard to believe only two years ago there was no garden yet!

Danie & Elize Correia – 12 Kiepersol street, Jim Fouchepark, Welkom
A special collection of cycads is the focus point between well-established palms and trees. Sprawling lawns are laced with soft contoured flowerbeds.

Riaan & Madelyn Jacobs – 22 Begonia street, Jim Fouchepark, Welkom
Fully-grown trees surround this garden. This garden is a very good example of how a unique variety of plants were used to make a very big garden interesting and how a well-kept garden can be an add-on to your entertainment area. A small vegetable garden idea is giving fruit to a larger future plan.

Mev. Bremer – 18 Marais street, Hennenman
This exceptionally beautiful garden draws admiration from far and wide after the previous garden show.  The emerald green lawns give way to sprawling fields of roses. A must see. Sweet treats and tea is also on offer to the benefit of the retirement village of Hennenman. Please support this gracious gesture.

Billy & Hettie Burls -13 Van Bruggen street, Jan Cillierspark, Welkom
Absolute perfection and tidiness – this garden is a picture of passion and love for gardening. Combinations of focus plants and hard landscape elements used in a clever way highlight this garden.

Jurie & Bettie Erwee – 18 Ha de Da Flats, Buren street, Flamingopark, Welkom
Here is a small townhouse garden that gives you an idea what to do with small spaces.
The clever use of flowing lines and different textures add interest to this garden.

John & Elize Donovan – 11 Jasmyn street, Jim Fouchepark, Welkom
This beautiful example of a Cape Dutch homestead is surrounded by a well-established garden. The biggest secret is at the heart of this garden. It will give fruit for thought. An art exhibition will be held on the verandah and please support the light refreshments that is sold on behalf of the local SPCA
