A Little bit of New Zealand in England

As we speak’s photographs come from Russ Plank.

I reside in Marlborough, Wiltshire, in England. I lived in New Zealand for 10 years and wished to carry somewhat little bit of New Zealand into my backyard by planting a tree fern, ferns, flaxes, grasses, and my favourite—lancewood (Pseudopanax crassifolius, Zones eight–10). Additionally, I wished to make it enjoyable and colourful, so I added a lot of fence artwork, planting pots, and containers. I even have a big tiled backyard wall, an concept I bought after I was in Greece.

Gentle-colored gravel mulch, plentiful artwork held on the fence, and a brightly coloured set of desk and chairs give this backyard a really brilliant, cheerful really feel that’s in stark distinction to the darkish inexperienced bushes seen excessive of the fence.

This painted blue ladder hung with containers of cheerful annuals livens up a part of the fence.

Quirky shelving topped with backyard artwork and plenty of small pots of flowering annuals provides to the enjoyable within the backyard.

A little bit of New Zealand within the backyard, with a tree fern (Dicksonia, Zones 9–10) and a clump of New Zealand flax (Phormium, Zones eight–10).

Usually we see annuals grouped collectively in giant pots, however that is one other stunning method to show them, with every selection in its personal pot and organized on cabinets like a set of lovely items of artwork.

This backyard actually creates an uncommon impact, fairly completely different from what we would consider as a standard English backyard. Irrespective of the place you reside and backyard, you’ll be able to create a variety of various emotions within the backyard just by your selections of crops and landscaping supplies.
