Plant Tiles Dichondra repens

The ground cover kids love!

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

Thanks to @nisatkinson for this pic.

Ground Cover Inspiration!

Highlighting ground cover use in the garden, @globallandscapes_kelsy proudly showed photos of this South Yarra project.

Plant Tiles of native ground cover Dichondra repens were easily cut to shape to fill between paving stones to provide an instant, mature, professional finish to the garden design. This low growing ground cover has small lily-like leaves that beautifully soften the hardscape pavers. Great design and construction www.globallandscapes.com.au !

  

 

 

MIFGS

2019 MIFGS Gold Show Garden

Huge Congratulations to MUSA Landscape Architecture winning the prestigious title of Gold Show Garden in the 2019 Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS). MIFGS is the Southern Hemisphere’s largest garden event with over 103,000 people attending the 2019 five day show.

The Show Garden was entitled Journey and was an exploration of mental health in collaboration with Beyond Blue.

Ryan McMahon designed and coordinated the garden saying “The garden ended in a metal structure that swayed slightly in the wind, each piece peels back a bit more than the one before representing someone ‘opening up’ and reconnecting with friends and family at the end of their journey to improved mental health.”

Time and materials were donated including our unique Plant Tiles of native Dichondra repens, depicted in strips between beautiful, large sandstone pavers.
