Eastfield is a livestock and maize farm situated on the Swartberg/Matatiele road with a beautiful view overlooking the Southern Drakensberg/ Maluti Mountains and surrounding hills.
Four years ago, Elmarie was approached and persuaded to open her garden. Overnight she and Pierre set about making the necessary changes, removing huge gum trees at the entrance, pruning up branches, opening beds and establishing focal points, creating a real oasis in the area. Estabished trees are a real feature of the garden with Pin Oak and Plane trees flanking their long driveway. A grove of Simonia Poplars makes an impressive statement at the back of the house. The two homesteads are surrounded by manicured sweeping lawns and large colourful beds with a wide variety of plant material and interest. We are delighted that Elmarie has agreed to open her garden again this year.
