4. Geometric Cubes
This unusual, abstract design features turf cut into a square geometric patchwork and wire cubes that have been covered with the spreading groundcover plant known as mind-your-own-business (Soleirolia soleirolii). Its tiny foliage creates an interesting patchwork when contrasted with the blades of grass in the lawn. Mind-your-own-business will form dense carpets of matted foliage and will scramble over the wire framework and bricks. Although it can tolerate sun or shade, it prefers moist conditions and therefore needs frequent watering until established.
