Cre­ate a lush green gar­den

Look at what can be achieved when you wrap a city house in lus­cious, lay­ered plant­ings

green, lush and full of un­ex­pected cor­ners and beau­ti­fully com­posed scenes, this city gar­den uses ev­ery avail­able space to ad­van­tage. In­spired by the flow of wa­ter, and with a largely trop­i­cal plant­ing theme, the gar­den has a re­sort-like feel and beckons one to es­cape out­doors. It’s proof that you can still cre­ate a gar­den of rooms, even when spaces are small, nar­row or ir­reg­u­lar in shape. Let it in­spire you to con­sider the pos­si­bil­i­ties of all the hid­den cor­ners in your own gar­den.

2 Cre­ate a more spa­cious feel in a small area by dis­guis­ing all the bound­aries with green! Renga lilies, philo­den­drons and bam­boo cover fences and re­tain­ing walls. At ground level, na­tive vi­o­lets and zoysia grass creep up to the pool’s edge, not only mak­ing the space ap­pear big­ger, but giv­ing a more nat­u­ral feel.
