Jungle Style Landscaped Garden at Riverside, Bangkok Transformation

The Thai Garden Design team recently designed for this large compound in a well-known estate in Central Bangkok. The owner was interested in a garden makeover, to create a Jungle Style Landscaped Garden for his home.

Landscape preparation and tree removal

The existing garden was a little bare, with many expired trees, and unwanted vegetation, and sunken ground levels.

This landscape is now a blank canvas, with a long way to go

The grass was worn or depleted, and heavy shade dominated large parts of the landscape, meaning nothing could grow.

Earth needed to be levelled and some removed from the large garden

The first task was to remove all unwanted stumps, trees and clean up. Large amounts of earth were required to build up the garden level.

The team work to design the new layout of this landscape

Earth was spread across the garden area, over 800 sqm, from front to back, and then topped with finer soil, and a sand course.

Plants arrive and are distributed across this large garden

A large plant list was drawn up and discussed, to include exotics, ground covers, hardy tropical foliage, screening plants (for privacy) and new trees.

The original plan that was submitted, which altered as the project progressed

Earth had also sunken so low that large areas of the side of the house were exposed, giving opportunity for pests, reptiles and unwanted animals to take up residence under the home. These gaps were concerted, sealed, and then earth brought up to the correct level.

A Jungle-Style Garden

The team designed the garden with a plan in hand, but also ‘in real-time’ to ensure the best results were achieved. During the project there were times that additional plants were requested, to bulk up planting in key areas.

The new lawn has lifted this unique river view

Plants were distributed evenly and with the overall goals of the owner in mind, to create a Jungle Style Landscaped Garden towards the entrance and parking areas of the home, and a more open style landscape towards the riverside area of the garden.

The new garden is a complete transformation …

New lawns were laid, compacted and rolled. July is a good time of year to install new grass, being that the extra rainfall helps the grass to take root on the soaked soil.

Vibrant colours and ground covers decorate the pathway to the back of the plot

The new jungle landscape towards the middle of the home is a complete transformation, from what was a bare, infertile looking garden, to what is now a colourful collection of tropical foliage of colour and levels.

Different heights, colours and foliage create a dramatic new entrance garden

Various ground covers decorate the stone pathway, including spider lily, fishtail ferns, red gingers, hibiscus and oleanders. To create privacy, the team employed heliconia and lipstick palms, which complemented well with the existing palms.
