Before starting on your new landscape design, survey your area and make some notes; you cannot concretely consider certain landscape decorating ideas unless you identify what kind of climate you are living in, how much you are willing to spend and how much space you have to work with. Additionally, as you browse several tropical landscape ideas and landscape pictures and make notes about the designs and landscapes that really jump out at you, keep in mind what level of ongoing maintenance is actually feasible. If you love working with plants, a large rose or vegetable garden is the perfect use of land; if you live in a hot or dry area, consider drought-tolerant landscape ideas. If you have younger kids, consider what they would enjoy as well, such as a large grassy area or a playground, swing set or pool. Think about what your family would use the most, as well as what would help boost your resell value in the long run. Lastly, when it comes to landscapes, be sure to consider different front and backyard ideas, as they are separate entities that serve two very different purposes. What plants should I add to my tropical landscape? When browsing landscape photos, think about curb appeal above all else; exotic landscape designs are your chance to make a great first impression. A flower garden is a great option, but if ongoing care is a concern, you can simplify the process by opting for low-maintenance succulents, bushes or hedges instead. If you don’t have a green thumb, consider simple and easy-to-implement landscape design ideas, such as grass, gravel pathways, water features, statues, wood fences or stone walls. What features should I have in my island style garden or backyard? While landscapes are seen as a primarily aesthetic component, there are additions you can incorporate in your tropical landscape design to make it as functional as possible. The Hawaiian style garden can be designed for entertaining and playtime with seating, dining areas, play spaces and sunny relaxation spots. A vegetable or flower garden is a common yard staple, especially if you add an interesting element like a pergola, arbor, walkway or fence. If you’re looking for lively landscape decorating ideas, consider adding fun accessories like birdbaths and feeders. For the ultimate party house, incorporate a pool and patio, or consider a deck with a fire pit, outdoor fireplace, barbecue and/or outdoor kitchen. If you’re an active, sports-loving family, add a basketball or volleyball court, or set up a bocce ball or croquet area. And don’t forget about furniture! A bench in a garden makes a great reading or meditation spot, while a weatherproof chaise lounge, sofa and chair are nice for soaking up those sunny days.

A gardening retreat adds an intriguing spin to a Caribbean holiday. In October, I joined “Love your Garden” in Barbados, a series of workshops given by Katie Rushworth, one of the presenters of the ITV programme of the same name. The retreat was hosted at the Sugar Cane Club, one of the island’s smaller hotels inland from the west coast.
