These landscape plantings, from garden bed to lawn to overhead vine, fit this shingle-style home perfectly. But think about it: This same landscape would work well with a range of home styles.
Hi Asher, I love the bamboo too but as you say is there a more practical plant for tubs near boundaries that grow tall upright and give privacy. We live near the sea. Love your work. Many thanks
We never planted it, blew in and is invasive and impossible to get rid of. We couldn't pay anybody to remove so we did it ourselves destroying our yard in the process
Where in Perth is the best nursery to get these from? I'm assuming not all nursery's are the same and you may go to different places for different plants ie tropical, native grasses etc. Which do you recommend to your clients? Rachel
invasive and will only grow to a certain height/ width. Running bamboo will grow and keep growing...and never stop growing.

gramineus 'Ogon' or sweet flag. These are young plants and ultimately will mass together here. For a photo of mature plants, see photo 3 under my project Lytle Road - Bainbridge Island. They require quite a bit of moisture and can also be submerged or planted in a boggy area.

I like the seating area under the trees, but not the plant material.

Hanging plant and bench at end of porch
Use an old tin budget to put plants in.
Install hooks for hanging plants. Nothing adds charm and curb appeal like a few well-placed geraniums.
Think outside the walls of your home and position blooming plants where you can appreciate them daily. Try a combination of hanging pots and planters set on tables and on the ground to make the
