  This is a tricky situation. Located within a very busy urban setting the planting needed to be able to withstand pedestrian abuse. The client wanted something classic, simple and dramatic. We chose a simple palette of Sycamore trees, Dietes, Creeping Fig, and White-flowered Potato Vine all durable plants. Only the potato vine flowers, the rest of the planting is green.

Annually the trees are pollarded to limit their size and keep a classic look about the design. The fig and potato vine green the entire garage level. This wall of green also discourages graffiti and vandalism. The overall design has been tremendously successful.
