I have just stripped my garden back to bare soil and have completely redesigned it i have made a large decked area close to the house and built a deck leading to a tiki bar. im aiming for a exotic jungle style garden and have opted for astro turf as i have 2 dogs . i have raised beds at the rear of the garden and was planning to use the central higher bed as a koi carp pond until the hosepipe ban spoiled my plans i have opted for various palms,bannans and cannas for now but im open for suggestions for big leafed plants and unusual colorful flowers etc if anyone can help me find that exotic jungle style i would be very grateful
