This beautiful kitchen garden boasts raised beds and attractive fencing to keep out critters. The raised fish pond with fountain in the center provides visual contrast and adds the serene sound of running water. Roomy enough to provide plenty of fresh food for the family, plus seats and a swing, this kitchen garden doubles as a place for alfresco dinner parties.

The garden is watered from an underground cistern (see top left photo) that collects roof water and is powered by a small solar panel.  Additionally, there is a rain ‘pillow’ under the back porch that collects roof water too, and is used to refill the fish pond.
