Transform your outdoor areas into paradise for much less than a trip to a romantic island resort. Don’t feel stressed to tackle all of these projects at one time. Introduce them as your budget allows. Before you know it, you will be kicking back with an umbrella drink enjoying your own personal Tropical Outdoor Design Ideas.
Think about the pictures you’ve seen or the tropical locales you have visited. Lush plantings are the main attraction. In the case of tropical outdoor spaces, more is better. In fact, you can’t have too much in the way of lush landscaping materials. Tropical greenery creates a cooling effect and offsets the heat created by hardscape.
Inject various shades of green, different sizes of leaves and plant heights to create visual interest. Layer low-growing ferns and hostas, philodendrons and cycads with taller palms and trees to give your tropical garden interesting sections of texture and greenery. Bring in subtle and vibrant color with plants like native woodviolet, bird of paradise, hibiscus and bromeliads.
