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.

It is a native Australia plant. I checked with one of our Horticulturists it is more a coastal plant so the conditions in the UK would not be suitable with frosts etc.

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.
