Can Tanika Lomandra plants be used as a border along a driveway or a garden edge and how many should I plant per metre?

Tanika is an ideal border plant because it won't get too large and cause obstruction. The number to plant per linear metre will depend on the look you would like to achieve. If you want a solid wall of foliage with no definition of the individual plants, space them at 30 to 40 cm centres. If you would like to see the full form of each plant with a small gap between the plants then space them at 70 to 80 cm centres.
