What Houzz contributors are saying:
Mix tropical with urbanJungly foliage, with its structured shapes and large leaves, is often seen in contemporary, urban gardens on Houzz. As such, it lends itself well to angular modern containers. The contemporary, black, rendered planter in this space, designed by Abigail’s Gardens, is perfect for showing off – and making a statement with – the lush foliage.Tell us…Do any of these planters inspire your garden plans?

Create a leafy oasisAn ever-increasing body of research suggests that spending time outdoors in nature can boost mental health. A lush, leafy border will give the feel of an idyllic retreat, even in an urban backyard. Choose tall evergreen plants, such as bamboo, to create a green-screen effect at the bottom of your garden, and supplement with palms and ferns. Put plants in pots as well as in beds and borders, to ramp up the lush jungle effect.
