• On Ting Estate - Palm Garden

    On Ting Estate, built in 1980, is one of the oldest public housing estates in Tuen Mun. When major renovation works were carried out in 2003, several barren planters in the estate were converted into a "Palm Garden" with sitting-out area. The Palm Garden also serves as an educational ground for students of nearby schools to learn about botany.

    • Design Features

      The Palm Garden, occupying an area of 1,500m², is extensively planted with about 10 species of palm trees, which include Arenga pinnata, Areca catechu, Wodyetia bifurcata, Livistona chinensis, Roystonea regia and Hyophorbe lagenicaulis. Among all the gardens under the Housing Authority, this is where the largest number of palm species is found. We made special efforts to retain existing plants, added various well-matched species of palm trees and put in place a specially-designed Tai Chi area. The theme garden has now become a serene, scenic spot for the enjoyment of residents at their leisure.The Palm Garden, occupying an area of 1,500m², is extensively planted with about 10 species of palm trees, which include Arenga pinnata, Areca catechu, Wodyetia bifurcata, Livistona chinensis, Roystonea regia and Hyophorbe lagenicaulis.

      Areca catechu

      Areca catechu is an evergreen tree native to places such as Malaysia, Philippines and Vietnam. The broad and straight tree trunks served as important building material for constructing the stanchions and purlins of houses in early years. According to some medical findings, the nuts of Areca catechu (betel nuts) have stomachic and astringent properties and curing effect for pestilence. It is also a custom in many places to use betel nuts as a masticatory. However, they contain chemicals like arecoline and arecaidine which, as research findings suggest, may have adverse effects on the health of those who chew betel nuts frequently.

      Areca catechu

      Hyophorbe lagenicaulis

      Hyophorbe lagenicaulis is only 3 to 5 metres tall on average. With a short cylindrical trunk and a swelling base, it resembles a Japanese wine bottle in shape and is, therefore, also known as "bottle palm". Hyophorbe lagenicaulis is a slow growing plant, which needs more than 20 years from sprouting to flowering and fruitage. The latter stage alone takes 18 months. This explains why Hyophorbe lagenicaulis is considered a precious ornamental plant.

  • Tai Hing Estate - Bauhinia Garden

    The site of the Bauhinia Garden in Tai Hing Estate was formerly an abandoned cycling ground and a mini-soccer pitch. To improve the environment of the estate, we decided to convert the site into a theme garden in four phases. The conversion works commenced in late 1999 and were completed in 2003. This is the second theme garden managed by the Housing Department with Bauhinia as its theme flower. The amphitheatre and the square in the garden are major venues for organising activities within the estate. Moreover, the Ficus elastica in the garden has been included under Register of Old and Valuable Trees (Registration Number: HD TM/1).

    • Design Features

      The Bauhinia Garden in Tai Hing Estate occupies an area of about 3,500 m². Apart from Bauhinia x blakeana and Bauhinia variegata, more than 37,000 plants including shrubs such as Rhododendron and Buxus microphylla and other ground cover are widely grown in the garden. During the flowering season in February and March, the garden is filled with colourful blossoms, bringing much charm and vigour to the estate.

  • Butterfly Estate - Pine and Bamboo Garden, and Palm Garden

    To preserve the tranquil environment of Butterfly Estate built in 1983, we have been making landscape improvement and greening efforts in the estate through extensive planting, which forms a green zone covering about one fourth of the total area of the estate. A number of theme gardens have been constructed in a design congruent with the environment of the estate and the unique features of its various types of plants, including the Pine and Bamboo Garden, and the Palm Garden inside the Butterfly Estate.

    • Design Features

      An indigenous Casuarina equisetifolia has been in existence in Butterfly Estate even before the estate was built. During the construction of the Butterfly Estate Garden, special arrangement was made to plant bamboos around the Casuarina equisetifolia as a foil to its wide spreading growth. A Palm Garden, extensively planted with palms, was also constructed in contrast with the Roystonea regia nearby for added variety and beauty.

  • Tsz Ching Estate - Herbs Garden

    Tsz Ching Estate, built in 1993, consists of eleven housing blocks accommodating 8,000 households. The Housing Department had carried out landscape improvement work in 2012 to enhance the green environment of the estate. In addition, a "Herbs Garden" was built in the same year. More than 5,400 plants including herbs and other shrubs and groundcovers were planted in the garden. This exquisite herbs garden has become a popular leisure area for the enjoyment of the residents.

    • Design Features

      The Herbs Garden occupies an area of about 90 square meters.

  • Lung Hang Estate - Dragon Boat Garden

    Built in 1983, Lung Hang Estate consists of six housing blocks accommodating 4,300 households. A new landscape improvement project was completed in Lung Hang Estate under the Housing Authority's Landscape Improvement Programme. With Ixora chinensis (commonly known as "dragon boat flower" in Chinese) as the theme flower to form a legendary dragon, the landscape is called "Dragon Boat Garden".

    The Dragon Boat Garden is located at the concourse of Lung Hang Estate which was previously home to a fountain. The garden is a landmark of the estate and is well enjoyed by residents in the neighbourhood.

    • Design Features

      "Dragon boat flowers" were chosen as the thematic species of the landscape because "dragon" is a homophone of "lung" (隆), which is the initial character of Lung Hang Estate denoting prosperity. The Dragon Boat Garden features rich layers and sharp contrasts. The taller Bougainvillea and Furcraea form the back layer, while the dragon boat flowers in red, pink and yellow colours and other shrubs line the lower frontier. The garden integrates a strong contrast of hard versus soft and warm versus cool. The solidity of the ornamental rocks is a contrast to the yielding layers of plants; while the warm colours of the "dragon boat flowers", Bougainvillea, Coleus and Furcraea contrast with the cool green shades of Dragon Juniper and Sprengeri fern. The dragon boat flowers have a relatively long flowering season from spring to summer, and the cultivation of mixed species keep the garden lively with flowers throughout the year.

    Sun Chui Estate in Shatin was built in 1983. Since then, greening and landscape improvement project have been carried out regularly in the estate to maintain a pleasant living environment for the residents. We implemented a landscape improvement project in 2003 to convert the turfed area at the entrance of the estate, which situates beside tall housing blocks, into a theme garden of about 800 m². The garden has now become a landmark of Sun Chui Estate.

    • Design Features
