Mosman Landscape

The house and garden display our client’s love of art and sculpture. The open plan style of the house allows our clients to look out into their garden from almost every room. The landscape design needed to have a very modern and sculptural feel. The silver, green and glaucous tones of the plants always work well in a coastal location.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Landscapes Take Shape With 3-D Thinking
When we talk about mass in garden design, we are not talking about mass planting — a planting of a large group of the same variety or species — but about the three-dimensional nature of the effect of using these plants.The mixed planting in this border shows that it is not just globular evergreens that create this feeling of mass, but also the close planting of grasses and phormiums.
Small-Leaved HebesWe have a wide choice of hebes to use in our gardens, and they love temperate climates, most having originated from New Zealand. Most are hardy, especially the smaller-leaved varieties, which cope well with dry conditions and maritime climes.There are quite a few hebes that naturally form evergreen domes, meaning they don’t need clipping, and that provide flower interest through the summer.Hebe ‘Green Globe’. Its moss-green foliage forms a tight globe-shaped plant that is perfect in containers or in the border. Pure white flowers cover it in summer months. Hebe topiaria. A super dome-shaped evergreen that has interesting silver-green foliage that sets off its white summer flowers perfectly.Hebe rakaiensis. Creates a very tight light green dome. As with the others, this hebe has white flowers through June and July.Hebe ‘Baby Marie’. One of the smallest of the dome-forming hebes, ‘Baby Marie’ is compact and low growing, with pale green foliage.More: 7 New Plants to Grow for Beautiful Foliage

Small-Leaved Hebes- Great evergreen broadleaf plant that doesn't loose it's leaves and stays small. It's between this and Cotinus for basic greenery.
