Congratulations. It's your garden in Aix-en-Provence, I am wrong?

It looks even better compared to last year.

Do you have photos of your garden on the presqu'ile de Giens?

Hi wassup everybody!!?
It's been more than 2 years now that i didn't post nothing on my topic, so i'm doing it now!and i hope everybody is doing well :)
During those 2 years, a lot of things happened... First of all, i moved to Miami to finish and pass my master in international trade (business) and thanks god i've been graduated few months ago! so happy.
Now, i'm still studying and working in the clubs like a promoter vip host and also i'm creating a business. and a lot of fun too! lol
Anyway, now i'm back to france for the summer to see my family and friends and in 2 days i'm going to algeria north africa to see my grandma uncles and aunts and everybody else... LOL
So before, i just wanna share with you, some pictures of my garden that i took today. and i can say wooow in 2 years everything has grown so fast WTF! lol
see u!

Nicely landscaped and a great selection of palms for your area

Have you tried getting a Brahea armata ( silver foliage ) and Brahea edulis would look great and are very hardy too !

hi

thanks a lot for your comments, i appreciate! :)

i like the song too, but i have no idea about the name and artist of that song , youtube proposed it to me when i was editing the video.

yeah dave you should come to Europe there're a lot of beautiful places! the French Riviera and South of Spain are the best place to grow palm trees and yeah in Switzerland it's crazy how a lot of palms can grow easy! a lot of beautiful garden around the lakes!

Thats not a right statement.

South of Spain allows growing some kind of palms.

Other species work much better in wet temperate and oceanic climates.

Lush and green, something similar that I aspire to have one day! Your robustas look like they're shooting for the moon- very healthy looking! Wait, those are robustas, right?

C’est vâchement beau, SamirBouag.

En plus, c’est impressionnant la manière dont vous avez serré toutes les plantes ensemble dans la bordure du jardin. Comme ça, vous avez de la place pour la pelouse et la piscine. Cool.

Je félicite aussi ceux qui se sont occupé du maintien lors de votre absence prolongée à Miami. Wow! ….franchement.

D’ailleurs, la pelouse est impeccable; c’est tellement parfait que, de loin, ça ressemble presque au faux gazon. Comme vous l’avez constaté sans doute, le gazon à Miami est complètement different. Les brins d’herbe sont beacoup plus larges et durs. Ce n’est pas doux comme le gazon chez vous. Malheureusement, les pelouses miamiennes ne sont pas vraiment faites pour s’étaler dessus.

Merci de vous avoir accueilli dans votre beau jardin, SamirBouag.

I have the same trouble with growing turf in my region of Australia. Summer is just to hot and dry I prefer to spend water on other plants. But if we do get a torrential fall of rain then the dry yellow grass greens up.
