The suc­cess of this gar­den lies in the mi­cro­cli­mates cre­ated by lay­er­ing plants:

Form shaded ar­eas and wind­breaks by plant­ing a back layer of tall bam­boo where the fo­liage can cre­ate a canopy, then plant shade-lov­ing plants in the mid­dle layer fol­lowed by fillers.

Choose plants that have sim­i­lar grow­ing and watering re­quire­ments – check la­bels when buy­ing. This will make main­te­nance eas­ier in the long run.
