Project Update – Parkville

We blogged this Parkville garden when it was first planted just over a year ago, so we thought we’d share some new shots of the garden’s progress.  These recent photos taken by Jeremy Blode Photography really show how different a space can feel once the plants take hold.  The refined planting palette unifies the space and presents a blanket of green.

Lomandra confertifolia ‘Little Pal’ creates a moving sea of green under the Jacaranda and down the boundary wall.  Within this sea, Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracilimus’ provides some winter interest and vertical highlights.

The Virginia Creeper tracing the lines of the pergola highlights the secondary outdoor room with some beautiful colour in Autumn, while the Boston Ivy has taken off up the brick wall to help soften the boundaries.

Between the steppers we planted a combination of Dichondra repens and Erigeron karvinskianus. These creeping ground covers have filled out nicely to soften the paving edges and accentuate the floating steppers.
