DECEMBER 2013

KZN Garden Of The Year
We are delighted for Miles Steenhuisen, of Mass Grow Landscapes, that his magnificent garden in West Riding won this prestigious award for 2013 – very much deserved. Miles has been of enormous help to our Association over the years and has also Adopted the Spot at Exit 28 off the M13 into Hillcrest on the right hand side – an official approved sign to be placed there shortly. Miles is also responsible for the landscaping of the new Caltex Garage gardens on the left hand side.
Old Main Road Caltex Garage
Sadly this garage continues to ignore the Municipal Bye-laws and has made no effort to replace the trees which he illegally felled. There have been several demonstrations at this site to express the public’s dis-satisfaction with the illegal approach of the new owner.
Ethekwini Municipality ‘Mayors Award’
Jenny Loughlin – Kassier Road Project, has scooped this award from the Planning and Climate Protection Department for her exceptionally hard work in clearing Kassier Road of its many invasive aliens and much more. Jenny has been utilising KHBA’s two gardeners – brothers Nicholas and Zuki Nothoza – and between them a great deal has been achieved. We warmly congratulate Jenny!
Hillcrest Motors – Shell Garage
The Douthwaite’s, owners of this garage opposite the Heritage Market, have started a wonderful initiative of a TV Screen at their garage – which you may look at whilst you put petrol into your car. They recently held a forum at which many safety features were explained which the public should adhere to whilst refuelling – all of which are detailed on their screen. You will also see photographs of the work KHBA do. Do please support them, their forecourt service is outstanding asis their indigenous verge planting.
