Jungle city garden

NB: To return to this page from the enlarged photo, just click the photo.

This project was to produce a planting plan for 3 raised beds in a small city garden. The clients wanted to screen out views of neighbouring houses above all and to have lush, dense, greenery. I included a tree fern and a banana as well as a dwarf palm and lots of bamboo for the screening. For winter interest there are fatsia, ferns, carex (yellow pond sedge) and hellebores as well as evergreen climbers.

The garden has now been partially planted up – see photos. My clients have used an existing tree ‘Sunburst’ instead of the banana – less dramatic but the yellow leaves light up the little garden.
