‘Viridis’ was landscape designer Phillip Wither’s show garden at the recent Australian Garden Show Sydney. Viridis was was a small, urban-sized backyard or courtyard where the lush planting contrasted beautifully with cream limestone feature walling from Limestone Australia and the deep chocolate privacy wall cladding from Outdeco.
A restrained palette and crisp lines kept this small garden very simple, while a riot of plant textures, form and spot colour really drew in show-goers who were a constant 2-3 deep around the garden.
A perfect example of Sydney subtropical style. I really like those white-framed wall gardens, which seems a whole lot more achievable than a whole greenwall and the little white-washed pots, which give the garden a much more personal feel.
