Kloof Rotary Anns hold
Open Gardens around Kloof
Sat 14 and Sun 15 October.
The Kloof Rotary Anns are thrilled to celebrating their 31st year of the Annual Open Gardens by inviting the public to admire four gardens in the Kloof areas on 14 and 15 October.
They have three beautiful gardens, all with a focus on indigenous, and natural landscaping, this year that are open to the public on Sat 14 and Sun 15 October from 9:30am – 4:30pm, with proceeds going to our local charities.
Fay Fenn, after an inspirational trip abroad, started Kloof Rotary Anns Open Gardens 31 years ago. Funds raised will be distributed to various charitable organisations supported by the Rotary Anns.
The Rotary Club of Kloof is more than a service organisation that’s making a difference in our community. They are a group of people who share a passion for improving their community while having fun and meeting new people.
Garden one is of Ian Todd and Paul Bushell and can be found at 11 Lyngarth Road, Kloof. This lush Kloof single-acre garden has been paired back to create a manicured and simple sanctuary surrounded by a combination of Plane and indigenous trees. The rolling lawn is formalised with impressive urns and boxed gardens to create a more contemporary feel. There is also a lovely vegetable garden.
Garden two is TWIMS (formally Crowhurst) is at 74 Everton Road, Gillitts. This garden is both indigenous and exotic with meandering pathways. Mass plantings have been achieved to keep the garden organised and easy to explore. Lovely old trees and a beautiful pool area complete it.
Garden three belongs to Almut Buhr and can be found at 1 Sandlee, 4 Coghill Avenue, Kloof. This indigenous and exotic garden tucked away in the heart of Kloof has many rooms. From the driveway you can turn right into a shady forest with a moss garden, with a vegetable enclosure in one corner, or you can walk up straight past the fountain, filled with fish through a stone wall into a flower garden, and then onto a lovely lawn with beautiful flower beds.
The Ubuntu Ground Cafe Hillcrest AIDS Centre (26 Old Main Road, Hillcrest) is offering a tea/coffee and cake special for R55. Their shops and nursery will be open on both days and there is no entry fee.
The Kloof Rotary Anns Annual Open Gardens is supported by 1000 Hills Tourism.
