When building a rammed-earth house, the first pits from which the earth is extracted obviously go to make swimming pools and ponds.
It is the additional pits produced by the excavations required to complete the build that are transformed into sunken gardens.
Sunken gardens may be 2-3 metres deep – deep enough to shield plants from strong winds and ‘hold’ rainwater until the ground can absorb it. As a result, they create protected microclimates for plants not usually found in this semi-desert region.
Banana, papaya and palm trees will all thrive in sunken gardens – which offer real havens of coolness for your precious collectibles!
