Landscape challenge

 Another recently completed project that was challenging because of its windy location.
Large rock were used to edge the planting bed and Thunbergia erecta added a a blast of purple to the greenery.
Coral Antigua heath  rusellia equisetiformis dominated the side of the slope and acts as a soil stabilizer.
Dark blue Plumbago was used as a filler around the Christmas palm trees

Large rocks were used to edge the side of the slope to prevent soil loss in the event of heavy rains. Bignonia rosea creeper was planted on both sides at the entrance of the driveway.

Yellow and white dwarf Lantana edge the driveway and pathway to the house. In my next post I will feature the back and sides of the house.


  1. Looks terrific. I love the Plumbago/Russelia combination under the Palms, and the Bignonia rosea creeper is just lovely. The Thunbergia certainly adds fantastic colour in amongst the green.

  2. Hello Helen, i miss your post, haven't seen you for a while. I remember long ago when I stopped posting for sometime you posted a loud call in Autumn Belle's, who alerted me about that call. haha! So, it looks like you are into the real terrestrial landscaping huh! And you're doing great! ...but i have another blogsite!

  3. Looks gorgeous! I love how you layered the two different color russelia with the blue plumbago...very spectacular coloring! Same with the yellow & white lantana, really eye catching! Great job, excited to see the rest of the project!!!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Happy Gardening & best wishes,

  5. Yay, I love to have you back and so nice to read about your landscaping job.

  6. Wow! It seems like it’s been a real challenge for you to landscape the whole front yard. Well, it’s a job well done because the result looks absolutely beautiful. Everything turned out perfect!

  7. Climate is one of the major factors that affect the growth of plants. Some plants can survive both warm and cold weather, while some may not. You must carefully choose what plants to grow in here. No wonder you had a hard time setting up your landscape. Anyway, you still did a great job! Cheers to that!
