Christopher and Susan Greig: Beechwood Garden
11th Oct 2018 - 14th Oct 2018R50
This is surely one of the most classical landscaped gardens in Johannesburg. Laid out in 1945 by a legendary landscape architect, Joane Pim and redesigned by the current owners, Christopher and Susan Greig, this 3.5 acre garden surrounds a magnificent old-world house, designed by Steffen Ahrends and features a colossal Water Oak which is believed to be one of the largest trees in Johannesburg. The garden features a forest setting with pathways leading to an English styled garden where several ponds provide the perfect example of water-garden planting. You will be surprised by two sections in this garden, one is the rose-covered colonnade and formal rose garden and then the sunken kitchen garden which is possibly one of the best examples of a suburban vegetable garden. The garden has gained heritage status and is worth a visit. It is accessible by wheelchair and has smooth pathways for people with limited mobility.
