Hidden amid verdant surroundings is an upscale gated residential colony, Garden Villas, in DLF Phase IV. This 12-year-old residential society has developed three beautiful gardens that stand in stark contrast to the dusty browns of tree-devoid Millennium City.
Spread across 15 acres, the society houses 50 families.
When the RWA was formed in 2008, a few residents — with help from DLF — developed the gardens. Each garden, spread across 2 acres, was done up with a variety of seasonal flowers. Hence, the name Garden Villas.
The RWA has so far spent about Rs 50 lakh in the past seven years for the overall development and maintenance of the society.
Sandeep Chillar, who was part of the team that developed the gardens, said, “We excitedly went to nurseries to get a host of seasonal flowers and seeds of roses, raat ki rani, some medicinal plants and a few air-purifying saplings.”
The entire area, he adds with pride, is almost always wrapped in a sweet scent. In fact, the colony looks so beautiful that people from nearby areas often come to enjoy the gardens. The gardens also have various herbs and cacti at the corners.
“The nearest club is in DLF Phase IV. So we celebrate all the big days, such as Republic Day and Independence Day, here. We also hold our functions here,” said Madhu Sudan Choudhary, a resident.
“Residents meditate here as well. Even outsiders sometimes ask permission to use our gardens for yoga, which we often allow,” said A Sudhakar, an RWA adviser.
