style | decor | fashion | DIY | design | organisation: tips, tricks & clever ideas for the savvy girl

When I think of gorgeous rooftop gardens, i think immediately of that scene at the end of Just Like Heaven, when Reese Witherspoon walks out onto the most incredible rooftop garden I have ever seen. That changed my perception of how a garden should be, and really opened my eyes to the creativity and possibilities of creating that perfect garden space (even if it’s only 10m by 10m!)

Gardens for me have always been about grass, flowerbeds and a few trees (preferably Oak) dotting the lawn. But having seen such inspiration in Garden and Home and House & Living and those sorts of magazines, as well as various shows on the Home Channel – it’s clear that paving, stonework, indigenous and making the most of spaces can create the MOST amazing gardens ever!

So this Sunday post on The Good Girls Guide (while it’s all cold and windy and horrible outside in Cape Town today) is dedicated to beautiful green, summery gardens. Enjoy 🙂
