2. Philodendrons These are classic courtyard plants, some of which are trees, and are well suited to indoor growing as well. They tend to do better in more tropical environments, so check with your nursery expert to see if they recommend the species of philodendron you’ve chosen. A good starting species is Philodendron bipinnatifidum which grows well in sheltered sites as far south as Melbourne, and is perfect for a small secluded courtyard.

4. Clean Water OnlyMosquitoes breed in moist conditions. Cleaning out possible habitats at the beginning of the season is a good precaution. These include gutters and damp stagnant garden areas such as leaf piles and tanks. Keep water at a distanceTry to plan your garden so water features such as ponds are not too close to outdoor entertaining areas. Turn electrical water features on regularly to keep water circulating and to inhibit growth of moss and sludge.

9. Create a tropical themeA distinctive theme for your garden can be easily developed by grouping several plants with similar foliage together. Here, in this Perth garden, the mass planting of philodendron around a water feature with a frangipani overhead makes it very clear that this is a subtropical-themed garden.

This is a bit too rectangular, but I love the contrast of the black with the vibrant green. I also like the water feature.
