BTW, If you have not secured it with stakes yet it may be a good idea to do it asap, otherwise the rootball may rock or even worse the whole thing could fall over.

Coming along great. I'd go for black fence as others have. It really throws out the palms and those white pots will look stunning. icon_thumright

Very contemporary design - looks great! icon_thumleft Looks like a pleasant spot to spend a sunny afternoon...

Though Im not sure if I prefer the trachys stripped or au naturale icon_scratch
