My passion for gardening and with an aptitude for designing took me far and beyond. I starting my own business designing and executing landscaped gardens
This was my first project. I had thousands of square feet to work on and that set me on to get more orders from other builders and individuals.
Right from the time I was a kid I had interest in gardening and every penny that I got as pocket money was used to buy seeds and flowering plants.
We did not have a big garden but enough to give me space to create my own.I would call it private space and no one had an entry there except a neighbour who was my best friend and she too had interest in gardening.
This interest continued when I left the shores seeking greener pastures and spent about 5 years with my sister in a city She had two balconies and thanks to me they were packed with greenery,
When I got married I shifted to a tiny flat that had just a small balcony There too I would have a few pots and plant roses and tomatoes. When we shifted to a bigger flat we were lucky to get a ground floor flat with some attached space which was a luxury for those living in cities. I was permitted to plant there
I gave up my 9 to 5 job to start my landscaped gardens designing and executing business which I gave up when we shifted to this semi rural place where I now live.
This experience came in useful when I designed our house SOLITAIRE where surely I had plans to have a landscaped garden too.
The garden that I now have has a wild look which has been done on purpose. With concrete jungles mushrooming everywhere it has become necessary to have as much greenery as possible
Our garden is a haven for birds specially for those displaced from jungles including peacocks. The fruits in our garden welcome birds of all species.
We have a bird bath that is frequently visited by these birds and it is a joy to see them frolic in there
