Joburg’s Shepstone Gardens are a mix of verdant and intriguing concealed spaces. They are theatrical gardens filled with hidden treasures. The owner took inspiration from 18th century English gardens, especially in terms of the views and different levels. It is about a sense of theatre, about not divulging everything at first glance.
A meander along the gently curving pathway reveals constant notes of surprise. For starters there’s very little lawn, but rather a series of glimpses that defy you not to explore. Cool, dark ponds, towering palms, hidden courtyards – each nook and hideaway demands that you pause a while.
Plant wise, this is a garden of contrast. Lofty ferns are under planted with clivias and at this time of the year the succulents and aloes create a blaze of colour on the sunny inclines.
