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.
Here’s a great tip. Go to your favorite garden center’s houseplant section. Of course, there is really no such thing as a houseplant. All plants want to be outside and will perform their best outside. Many of the so-called houseplants are really understory tropicals that will perform beautifully on a covered patio or deck where they have protection from direct sun. Experiment with some of these plants and you are sure to be amazed at the results.
Partying at the Right Season: Summer and spring are the best seasons for backyard parties. The sky is usually clear and there are so many activities that you can do. If you have a pool in your backyard, then a pool party is the best to have. It may be potluck or you can host everything. It is important to have beverages and light snacks during pool parties. Make the party more fun by having pool games. It is always important to consider the safety of your guests when hosting any type of party, though. So make everything safe.
