Perspective of the garden
The existing garden is of great historical and botanical value but is hidden and underutilized. The proposed design opens up the garden and provides gathering spaces while placing emphasis on the Cycads and their habitat specific companion plants.
Perspective of the view point into the garden
In order to invite visitors into the garden and to highlight the grandeur of the Cycads a view point is proposed that overlooks the whole garden.
Botanical information boards
Information boards with QR codes of each species can be scanned with ‘smart’ devices and will directly link to a website when scanned. Information is made more accessible while facilitating an uncluttered garden with aesthetic and botanical significance.
Extended design of Cycad garden
The landscape is designed to connect to the Miriam Makeba terrace above the garden and to tie in with the planned extension to the nearby lawns. A greenwall and a Cycad greenhouse is also proposed on the potential parking garage to promote future educational opportunities.
