This job is quite a few years old now. Back then we used either Manilla Tan or Dune.

Hi. The timber screen in the rear is all Merbau timber in a 70 x 19mm format. We use Intergrain or Cutek stains to bring the timber to life, from there you can pick a colour that suits.

Hi. The garden bed in the planter is around 250mm x 3000mm. We used 190mm concrete blocks for the construction. Can't remember exactly the size as this project was done a very long time ago and we no longer have the plans in our office.

Thanks. They are LED accent lights spiked into the garden bed below. They are brighter than normal in this photo due to the over exposure of night photography. You can view them at http://www.gan.com.au/products/accent-lights/accento-5

Hi, The planters were constructed using 190mm concrete block work core filled with more concrete for strength. They are then tanked with a water proofing membrane and rendered with acrylic render which has the colour in it.

Pretty hard to kill. Just require well drained soil. They love sun but are a tropical plant so will survive in most conditions.

Planters were 600mm wide by about the same high. All raised planters are always tanked with aggregate and drainage in the bottom. They also contain irrigation and lighting.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Spectacular Landscape Lights Dazzle in the Dark
While the previous garden was large and extravagant, a smaller space also benefits from a little color. This accent lighting draws attention to the seating area at the far end of the garden and breaks up the otherwise monochromatic look.
