This design was installed in April 2010. A collection of plants was selected that would provide year round interest in a simple L-shaped raised garden bed that faced directly into the family's living room.

Leucadenron 'Safari Sunset' were planted along the fence line to create height and colour; the scarlet red tips looked sensational against the charcoal coloured fence.

Aulux 'Bronze Haze' were planted in between the Leucadendrons, again to create a contrast from the fence with their golden-bronze tips and to create interest with their fine feathery foliage.

Ground covers Lotus maculata 'Bling' and Chrysocephalum apiculatum were planted to the front of the bed, and have provided lasting colour displays throughout the Spring and into Summer.

Acacia cognata 'Mini Cog' and Dianella 'Utopia' were planted throughout the bed as fillers.

Around the seated section of the L-shaped bed a combination of the clients own plants and other selected plants were planted- including dwarf mondo grass and Trandescantia pallida, underneath a pony tail palm in one section, and in the corner some asparagas ferns, cycads and streliztia's were under planted with Convolvulus sabatias and Euphorbia myrsinites.
