Tropical Gardens

The tropical garden has one foot in the exotic South Pacific and the other in the Equatorial rain forest. These humid climates produce an incredible array of plants in what we once called the “jungle.” The glitzy coast of Florida, languid vacation lifestyle of Hawaii, or the more rustic feel of the Mexican Riviera can inspire themes for this style.

Design Concepts for Tropical Gardens

The essence of the tropical garden is dense planting. Only with a lot of plants in a small space can you achieve the desired jungle-like appearance.

Hot, bright colors just scream tropics. Not only bright flower colors, but striking variegated foliage. And, use color in your hardscape and décor.

More Elements in the Tropical Garden

Huts and palapas - The rustic thatch roofed of a beachcomber’s shack. Whether constructed out of salvaged lumber and palm fronds or more upscale carved Balinese posts or timber bamboo, this shaded nook will become the favorite room of your outdoor living room.  Rattan and teak furniture. Add a few brightly colored cushions.

Think Caribbean and South Pacific

Outdoor Art in the Tropical Gardens Carved wooden tikis of the South Pacific or pre-Columbian style stone carvings from the Americas add character and primitive mysticism to the garden. Vivid glazed pots bring high drama when planted with leafy tropicals or a small water garden. Outdoor shower, you can experience warm “rain” in the midst of your own tropical “forest.”
