Ordinary home is hiding incredible tropical garden with Amazon waterfall and Koi pond



THIS seemingly ordinary home is hiding an incredible tropical garden complete with an Amazon waterfall and a Koi pond.
The four-bedroom house in Llantwit Major, Wales, does not look out of place with its traditional black ceramic tiles and painted beige exterior.

But behind the small front door lies a walkway that leads into the breathtaking back garden which might just give lucky visitors a slice of Japan’s tropical greenery.
A stunning burgundy pagoda, stands in the middle of the garden, designed with off-centred brick pathways leading guests through the stunning greenery.
Light grey brick walls line one side with the other ornamented with dozens of hand-pruned bonsai plants.
SLICE OF GOOD LIFE
If that wasn’t enough, homeowners Don and Ann Knight decided to add a lavish 5ft deep Kopi pond next to a Japanese Torri gate and the Amazon waterfall.
Don, a keen gardener, had long been fascinated with bonsai plants, and once Ann gave him the green light to transform the garden, he went full steam.
Ann, 62, told Wales Online: “He’s always in the garden. If It’s raining he’s like a caged animal – he hates it.
“The bonsai’s need watering twice a day once it gets warmer and that takes about an hour each time.
“As he’s doing that he will spot something else that needs trimming or doing.
