Love seeing how clients use our Plant Tiles!

Hi guys,

Just to say thanks for your service, it’s been a pleasure dealing with you guys.

It took us a while to chop up your 40-odd tiles into 9 and plant them (+ it felt a bit sad, too, but it was the only way we could afford Zoysia). But we finished a couple of days ago yay. See photo attached. The first ones we planted last week are already taking root and have visibly started growing a bit 🙂

We look forward to watching them connect up over the coming months, it’ll look fantastic against our new purple-gray wall. We’ll send you a pic once it is connected.

Cheers

Olivia & Alex

Daisy Flowers now available in Plant Tiles!

Introducing daisy flowers available in Plant Tiles! Erigeron compositus aka Cutleaf Daisy or Fleabane. Although usually grown in cold/temperate areas, this hardy plant is also quite happy here in Brisbane.

The foliage only grows to 30mm and with the flowers up to a total of 100mm. This self-seeding perennial is perfect for rockeries or garden beds. The pretty, grey/green leaves make a textural point of interest so also look great as an alternative living mulch.

Silver Sprinkles Pilea libanensis

Silver Sprinkles is New to Plant Tiles!

Silver Sprinkles aka Pilea libanensis is the newest addition to our range of low growing ground cover plants grown in our unique Plant Tiles.

It is the perfect ground cover for those shady positions along the side of a building.

Sprouting from a reddish stem, the small grey/green leaves provide interesting foliage. Due to the gentle trailing characteristic, this plant also looks great in an indoor pot plant as a no mess living mulch.

Silver Sprinkles is best in a protected area away from direct sunlight and frost and likes well drained soil in which to grow as it prefers not to be over watered.

Able to take low traffic, these plants looks great along the edge of a shady path between buildings or as infill for garden beds under trees.

Where could you use this in your garden?

Native Violets flowers under trees

Native Violets make a Great Ground Cover!

Australian Native Violets – Viola hederacea banksii – have such happy little flowers! We love seeing them in our greenhouse growing in our unique Plant Tile form. They always look fantastic planted en masse as a ground cover. Happy in part shade, they look great under trees or used as a alternative living mulch. Additionally, their cascading nature also makes them a wonderful choice to plant near a retaining wall or in a pot plant.

Fantastic example of mature Zoysia tenuifolia grass!

This was installed in Vaucluse, Sydney, using our unique Plant Tiles. Although planted in December 2019, Zoysia tenuifolia is so slow growing that this has not been mown!

Childcare centres

The ground cover children love so is used in Childcare Centres!

Children love the soft, cool feel of Dichondra repens which is why it is used in Childcare Centres. The daughter of a client couldn’t wait for the Plant Tiles of ground cover Dichondra repens to be planted.  She just had to try walking on them while they were still in the trays!

Thanks to @nisatkinson for this pic.
