Urban Landscape

I think this First Avenue apartment owner should get a certificate, confirming they've had a "really good try" at growing plants on their deck.

Two yuccas do not a forest make, but it's a start.

Wonderfully large decks on those apartments! Is the view any good?

Julie said...

Let me guess: waterfront and catching copious salt and southerlies?

Pleasant views, but a street back and well protected from the southerlies.

Mooloolaba beach faces due north (like Noosa) so those harsh salty winds found at every other Aus beach aren't a problem.

It's a no-win situation trying to grow stuff in the air, it's just like creating an artificial desert without any redeeming features horticulturally speaking.

True, it also looks like that modernist approach to veranda gardening.

At least they are trying! Those are nice decks.
