Akkerkloof Dam 26 April 2019

There is plenty to celebrate about, the Akkerkloof Dam is slowly filling up!  The recent good rains and the removal of alien vegetation along the banks of the river have made a huge difference to the level of the dam. Water restrictions are still in place, but after so many years of ‘suffering’ gardeners have adapted to different styles of gardening, planting more succulents and other water wise plants. We have all found that it is far more cost effective; replacement plants are no longer the order of the day, water bills are negligible  and quite frankly the low maintenance aspect suits us oldies very well.
