The summer is here, and you simply cannot wait to start your vacation. You are probably imagining yourself with a drink enjoying a tropical island. With the rustling of the palm trees and warm summer breeze, oh we wish that this vacation can last forever. You think you just can’t get enough of the rich tropical wildlife and amazing greenery.
If you are lucky enough to live in a place where the climate is perfect, you can create your own little tropical paradise. Tropical plants like palm trees are at the core of your tropical landscaping adventure, so they will be that unique centerpiece of your landscaping project.
Your tropical front yard and backyard will inspire the mood of relaxation, and it can last all year round. If you have a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to go on vacation – you can create your safe haven.
Creating a tropical yard shouldn’t be a complicated task. All you need to do is a bit of planning, know a little about tropical plants, and also have some love for tropical decor.
If you are ready to pack your bikini and head to your next tropical destination – you won’t need to catch a plane to get there. But the tiki bar will be open! Check out the hottest front yard tropical landscaping ideas!
As we previously mentioned, the star of your backyard will be the fantastic greenery. The bigger the leaves, the better. This means you will first need to determine where you will plant your tropical yard plants. Since the leaves are big and a bit untamed, you want to avoid people struggling to find their way through your jungle.
So, put some palm trees on your patio or wines to create an original entrance into your tropical paradise. Make sure that you keep the palms close to your home in case of cold weather or frost – they don’t handle that well. Think about adding colorful flowers such as orchids, begonias, or plumerias. Vivid colors combined with the deep green color of leaves will add that wow factor to your front yard.
When it comes to tropical yard decor, try not to go too over the top. Instead, think of nature and all of the elements. For example, lava stones are a great addition. There is no volcano around, but they will match the decor perfectly. Canopy lights around the trees is another idea. Or possibly macrame hammocks. Maybe add some sea details like shells, wooden signs that say ‘’no swimming, shark sightings’’, put up some surfboards, fish nets, and so on.
An outdoor fire pit is perfect with tiki torches around it. Just imagine how cool your outdoor parties would be.
Choose some of the elements but avoid making it look like you are hosting a tropical yard sale.
Of course, water features are simply inevitable when it comes to tropical yard decor. Depending on the size of your yard, you can add a fountain. Fountains are very versatile, so you can choose which type works the best for you. Water walls can be amazing as well – they can fit nearly everywhere, and they can imitate both waterfall and tropical rain.
Birdbaths are a great addition as well. They are elegant and can help you attract wildlife.
While you are stargazing on your vacation, you are probably also enjoying the sound of the wind, the birds chirping, and the sound of different exotic animals. In the daytime, it is always amazing to see colorful butterflies and birds enjoying nature.
The closer you are to nature, the more relaxed you will be, even though you are maybe living in the middle of the hectic city.
Bamboo is a great choice when it comes to tropical decor. Try finding bamboo furniture and add some tropical cushions as well. Bamboo fencing is also a superior choice – it will look fantastic, and it will give you enough privacy so you can enjoy your tropical paradise with all your senses.
The most important feature for your backyard could be an amazing tiki bar where you can get the tastiest summer cocktails. You can utilize bamboo for the bar to make it even a little more tropical. You don’t have to spend much on the material, but you will want to keep your tiki bar open all year round.
