Looks very much like the common indoor Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina) let loose in the ground.

Yes, I agree with the ID . my son has a not as large as this one at his house in SA. I realise the connection when he was saying that the bathroom outlet pipes were getting blocked all the time. Hope he got onto the tablets for killing the tree roots that I thought were in there. now I see which tree is probably the culprit. they are great in pots but that's where they should stay.

An old iron pronged rack stood upside down in your veggie garden provides a handy hanger for your hand tools. Looks very 'country' as well.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
