The garden was created back in 2004.
The front yard consists of climate appropriate plants which include:
Cycads, Guara, anemone, scheflera, protea.
A variety of pondless waterfalls grace the front yard.  These save
water by not allowing an open space of water to evaporate.  Water is
drawn from an underground cistern.

The backyard has a Koi pond, and waterfalls and also houses a 4000 gallon rainwater
harvesting system which catches rainwater and saves it for future irrigation use. This
landscaper's latest passion would be his commercial and self-built aeroponics gardens.
Mike also gives talks on vertical gardening and growing vegetables with recycled water.
Check out the "floating" vegetable garden in the Koi pond.
