BLOCK PLANT­ING

In con­tem­po­rary and for­mal gar­dens, mass suc­cu­lents in blocks ac­cord­ing to their colour, shape and tex­ture in struc­tured, geo­met­ric pat­terns. Em­pha­sise the con­tem­po­rary style by lay­ing gravel or bark chips be­tween plants.

RAN­DOM PLANT­ING

This method im­i­tates na­ture and the po­si­tion­ing is left to chance, giv­ing the gar­den an in­for­mal, re­laxed look. To recre­ate this ef­fect, ran­domly plant larger suc­cu­lents among groups of smaller ones.
