I don’t think fake greenery is ever a good design choice, indoors or out. What’s the point?

This is my beautiful coastal garden the trees shrubs surround the fences totally, the trees around the spa are full grown now to create a cocoon while in it, the garden "rooms" are sectioned off by long tall banksia's, and other coastal plants, The fire pit area is also surrounded by shrubs. The large water tank is hidden behind a decorative screen "shown in picture with hammock" And this is not all of the garden there are more areas all in a normal size suburban block near the beach of course "hence the style and plant choice"

Some really practical ideas in this article. We went for a modern fence which I think frames the garden quite nicely. It takes a while for an urban garden to become full so patience is key!
