About Belmont Farm

 

“We come from the earth, and we return to the earth and in between we garden…” (Alfred Austin). 

A true treasure hiding in the mountains awaits you at Ria Moolman’s garden at Belmont. “A Piece of Heaven” as she calls it, describes this garden perfectly…. This garden is framed by beautiful mountains and was established in 1974. Something old, something new, and definitely something blue can all be experienced in this garden, with a variety of huge trees and shrubs, some from way back, as well as beautiful lawns with bold splashes of sun and shade.

Ria makes use of nature’s elements from the surrounding area such as stones and river pebbles. A stone theme runs through the garden with plants along the way to soften these elements. Masses of roses, mostly grown from slips, grow in colour blocks on the terrace. A wide variety of registered cycads can also be seen.

This farm runs on alternate energy sources: a generator, sun and wind power and a “donkey” for hot water. These can all be seen in action. For most of their needs they make use of spring water. Ria loves her life style and says: “An isolated life, but it is a privilege to live here in our 'Piece of heaven’."
