A real, wild jungle is almost maintenance free (or rather self maintaining, striking its own balance).
Not so much for a suburban and contrived jungle garden. It needs lots of maintenance and the balance is struck by the gardener.

|Lots to cut, lots to clear!|
Most of the scenes you see here are by the bottom patio which is part of the jungle area at the farthest point from the house in our garden.
|Let there be more light!|

|I spy something new...|
|A concrete wall! But our plants are doing a good job so far screening it|
In fact we gained two significant positives which is an enhanced privacy at the bottom of our garden and the area becoming even more sheltered with less cold winter winds passing through it and the occurrence of frost significantly decreasing as well as settling of snow.

|And everyone should have a graceful Podocarpus growing in a pot!|
