Tropical plants and flowering perennials

Town Garden

Tropical planting and colourful perennials

greencube’s garden in Kings Hill transformed a blank canvas new build garden into a sleek and special place, balancing tropical plants and flowering perennials with a repeat of hardwood decking, black basalt paving and three-coloured rendered walls. Hints of orange and purple are injected into the planting scheme contrasting with leafy lush green banana, erybotrya and yucca to create form and structure. We’ve painted the walls white and the fence black to enhance the lush green foliage and colourful flowering Geum and Geranium. Clever use of raised planters helps to create a cosy outdoor social space, with low maintenance, high impact planting softening the surroundings. We have used LED strip lights to create a wash of colour on the bespoke seating and a feature on the steps that lead to the gate. We have placed spike lights in the borders to uplight the specimen Banana, Loquat and Bamboo.

We’re really proud of this town garden. The clean, simple lines and a limited palette of colour and texture give clarity to the space.
