Landscape design – site conditions
Site conditions and preparation are imperative in landscape garden design. Soil condition, drainage, climate, light and irrigation are essential factors that should influence actual plant selections and site preparation. Brisbane’s climate allows us to use a diverse range of plant species in our landscape design. Following is an insight into some of the species considered in our designs.
Tropical garden design
Tropical gardens with low maintenance year round colour are ideal back yard gardens. These will bring foliage colour to your backyard landscape without high maintenance. Deep reds and purples of the Cordyline, multi colours of the Crotons, small clumping palms for screening, the unique structures of Dracenas. Various under story plantings such as Liriope stripey whites, Xanadu, Liriope evergreen giant, Strelizea (bird of paradise), Bromeliads are examples of under story tropical plantings.
Formal garden design
Formal gardens commonly involve hedges or shaped plants and are therefore considered higher maintenance. Plants commonly used in Brisbane for hedging and shaping are Murrayas, various species of Syzygiums (Lilly Pilly) and Acmeneas, Austramyrtus blushing beauty, Gardenias, Buxus. Other species less commonly used now include Duranta gold and Alternanthera. These were often used as a two stage hedge for there colour contrast (purple & yellow)
Contemporary designs commonly incorporate a more structured layout utilizing feature plants. Selections include Cordyline red sensation for it strappy foliage, yuccas, agave’s and Dracenas for there unique structure . Australian native grass trees, Pandanus (particularly coastal) and various grasses are also common selections. Palms such as red Latains, Bismarckias, Ponytail, dwarf Dates and Canary island date work well as a bold statement and feature.
