The exotic, tropical look of your backyard resort will be achieved by combining a wide variety of shapes, forms, colors, and textures. Banana plants with their large dramatic leaves, beautiful foliage plants like coleus and gingers, open and airy ornamental grasses, beautiful climbing vines, and tropical blooming plants all have a place. What may surprise you is that there is also a place for many of our more cold-hardy and traditional landscape plants. Uniformity and normality are out; randomness and whimsy are in.
Add Some Water: For those of you who live in a landlocked area, bodies of water might not exactly be a hop, skip, and a jump away. Instead of longing for an ocean or a lake, bring a mini-version to you by putting in a fountain or a pond. A fountain or a pond can enhance your backyard, giving it a watery essence it wouldn’t otherwise have. These might not be much like the ocean – they won’t allow you to snorkel or surf – but, look on the bright side: you won’t have to worry about sharks.
When you begin to do the actual landscaping, make sure you list all of the items you will need beforehand. Buy the right tools for the right job. Don’t try to cut corners and skimp on materials. Make your backyard a place that you are proud to show visitors and guests to your home. A properly landscaped backyard will be a wonderful gathering place for parties and family events. Ponds, waterfalls and water gardens can add a sense of tranquility and peace to your backyard. Flower gardens are also a great way to enhance the landscape of your backyard. Wild flower gardens can create a wonderful centerpiece and are certainly something to consider when jotting down backyard landscaping ideas.
