Sub-Tropical Melbourne Garden by Myles Baldwin

Sub-tropical Melbourne Garden by Sydney landscape designer Myles Baldwin | The Hardt

 

The owners of this Melbourne garden wanted to give it a non-Melbourne look, so they asked Sydney landscape designer Myles Baldwin to help them rework it. The result is a garden that features larger, more exotic foliage in defiance of the usual cooler-climate trends.

(5/6) The classic Gothic revival house is accented by the newly transplanted Canary Island date palm. The palm was just one super-advanced plants freighted down from Sydney to provide instant impact and maturity.

(6/6) A geometric tiled wall catches the eye. The layered planting scheme also extends to the vertical surfaces in the garden. On the courtyard walls, English ivy (Hedera helix) and Boston ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata) are planted together, with Asian jasmine (Trachelospermum asiaticum) spilling over from the top.
