Lots of houses have an indoor space for a garden here are two examples of work we have done. After consultation with these clients we installed a low maintenance potted plants.
1/ Indoor / Outdoor garden in West Melbourne doesn't get much sun so ferns are perfect under story plants, with some Autumn leaves for mulch.
2/ This indoor courtyard in a Prahan town house is sunny in Summer but shady in winter so a deciduous Japanese Maple provides some green life in the warmer months and when the leaves drop the Red trunk will be the center of attention.
3/ Indoor large pot on a stand to give it height is planted with a tropical feel.
