The owner created a gently undulating garden bed before planting the Plant Tiles. This gives an interesting mounding around the pool, softening the edging.

We are thrilled that Todd Duclos from Living Through Landscapes is impressed with our Plant Tiles.

“@planttiles you never disappoint with your amazing products. The clients are thrilled.”

As per the Instagram pic @livingthroughlandscapes on 4.11.17, the Plant Tiles look great around the pool paving!

Plant Tiles of no mow, native Dichondra repens were chosen to be cut to shape around the paving for instant infill. The small, lily-pad shaped leaves contrast beautifully and soften the hardscape of the pavers.

Landscapers love the instant, professional effect the Plant Tiles give to their projects!

Plant Tile Zoysia tenuifolia

Native wildlife gives the thumbs up to our unique Plant Tiles!

This little native Blue Tongue Lizard loves sitting on our Plant Tiles even before they are planted!

As soon as he received our Plant Tiles, a client removed them from the carton to give them fresh air and water until he was ready to plant them.  He laid the Plant Tiles, still in their individual trays, on some paving to ensure each Tile had access to good light and watering was an easy task.

Our client intended to plant the Tiles the next day and went inside to his house. Not long afterwards he looked out towards the Plant Tiles and was delighted to see a happy little friend, a wild Blue Tongue Lizard, enjoying a bask in the sun on the Plant Tiles!

Thank you, Graeme, for this lovely photograph showing native wildlife approving our Plant Tiles.

Ispiration Dichondra repens

Dichondra repens – the favourite alternative lawn!

Dichondra repens is a stunning, small leafed, Australasian native groundcover which makes a wonderful alternative lawn.

It has a beautiful, dense thatch of delightful, lily-pad shaped leaves that become smaller and tighter with increased light intensity.

Happy to take full sun and traffic, Dichondra repens is even used on some bowling greens in New Zealand.

It has become a favourite with Childcare Centres as, not only do children love the cool, soft feel of the leaves under their feet, Dichondra repens, unlike grass, does not give them “itchies” after rolling around on it.

Imagine!   A lawn that does not require mowing!

See a YouTube video showing a Dichondra repens lawn that has not been mown for 8 years!

Dichondra is happy in dappled shade and is an excellent choice for living green cover under trees where traditional lawn will not survive. In shady areas, the Dichondra repens leaves will become larger and higher as the plant seeks light for photosynthesis.

Not affected by frost, this Australian native is hardy under most conditions, staying green through winter.

The height will vary between 2 and 100 mm depending

on the environment: traffic, soil, water and light available to it.

Why use bark chips as mulch when this delightful array of miniature lily pads will further enhance your garden? Dichondra is wonderful as a living mulch as recommended by the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage.

Dichondra repens Plant Tiles are fabulous to put between paving stones. Simply cut the Tiles to shape to provide instant infill between the pavers, softening the hardscape.

Another gorgeous way to use Dichondra is to grow it at the top of a retaining wall or in a large pot to provide a striking, weeping effect over the edges.

Snapshot for Dichondra repens

  • Full sun or dappled shade
  • Green, small lily-pad like leaves
  • 2-100mm in height so usually considered no mow
  • Low maintenance
  • Low to medium water use once established
  • Once established has moderate drought and light frost tolerance
  • Fertilise in Spring with a long acting fertilizer or more regularly with a foliar spray such as Seasol
  • Soft, non-itchy so great for kids to play and roll around on.

Uses for Dichondra repens

  • No mow lawn. See a video from a happy man who hasn’t mown his Dichondra repens lawn for eight years!
  • Fantastic between pavers forming a low growing, green mat that softens the hardscape
  • Wonderful for difficult to mow areas
  • Use in rockeries as a striking groundcover
  • Will grow in shadier areas where usual grasses struggle
  • Great around the base of specimen trees in a courtyard
  • Perfect for green roofs or rooftop gardens
  • Low maintenance is great for commercial areas
  • In pots or garden beds as an alternative living mulch.

 Establishment of Dichondra repens Plant Tiles

How to get the best out of your new Dichondra repens lawn? Ensure it has good quality media in which the plants can set root. When established in a good depth (100-200mm) of quality, friable media, the plants handle moderate traffic well, actually becoming lower and denser with pressure making it an ideal alternative lawn for average household use.

Dichondra repens can be grown from pots or plugs but this can take a long time to achieve total coverage and you most likely will have to undertake weeding between the plants.

Plant Tiles work wonderfully as we have done the hard work for you!

No digging holes and waiting for pots to grow together. You can just place the Plant Tiles next to each other on your prepared media to achieve instant full coverage!

The Plant Tiles are grown in only 22mm of media so will require frequent small waterings until the roots penetrate the media on which they are placed. A fertiliser such as Seasol is useful to encourage root growth. Once established, water more deeply and less frequently.

Low Maintenance Garden Ideas for a Stress-Free Outdoors

Having the most beautiful garden in the neighbourhood is something that many homeowners strive to achieve. Planning out how the landscape is going to look and planting things is hard work, but once that’s done, it’s done. The hard part is keeping everything looking great and that requires maintenance.
