Make The Most Of Your Coral Springs Home Through Tropical Landscaping
Anyone who has been to or who lives in Coral Springs knows how beautiful it is. The tropical climate is the perfect recipe for a blooming garden with rich and deep colors. The flowers that thrive here can be designed into breath-taking gardens. You could also include other plants that are sure to bring out the tropical landscape design in your home. If you have been wondering how to make your outdoor space come alive, think of tropical landscaping. This post will give you some ideas for this.
Not all plants are suitable for your outdoor space. It all depends on your specific location. Similarly, there are some that are sure to thrive within the tropical climate.
There are many types of plants suitable for creating a tropical landscaping design, whether in beds or in containers. Bromeliads, orchids, palm trees (Arecaceae), and hibiscus are just a few ideas to start with. Sometimes including very large-leafed plants (like Colocasia, also known as Elephant Ear) creates an optical scale that feels tropical. Also you can create the illusion of tropical planting with brightly-hued annual flowers like portulacas, dahlias, snapdragons, impatiens and petunias, all of which are easy to care for, widely available and suitable for container planting.

All these are suitable for your home if your area has a hardiness zone between 8 and 10. The climate in Coral Springs is perfect for these plants.
Perhaps you’re the kind of person who doesn’t have much time on your hands for regular gardening needs. This should not be the reason why you write off the project altogether. There are ways you can work around your schedule by choosing the right kind of tropical landscaping elements:
If you fertilize and mow your lawn properly, you might still have some trouble spots. Those areas that are too shady or too heavily trodden need to be handled in some other way than turf.
Shady spots might be ideal for a small terrace, a paved area where you can sit and enjoy the cool location. If this is not practical in your landscape, then shade-loving ground covers or shrubs can be used.
When it comes to heavy traffic areas, a good solution is a walkway. Walks are as much a part of a garden as are grass, shrubs and trees. As with the rest of the garden, walks should be carefully designed. They also must be practical. Read more at Hawaii Tribune Herald…
As you know already, any landscaping needs to include both hard and soft elements. Be sure to choose them based on your ability to maintain them as and when needed.
Choose a Tropical Garden Plan
As with any project in life, your tropical landscaping needs a good plan in order to work. This will help you avoid confusion and unnecessary mistakes as you carry out your project. Tropical landscaping features can be very tempting, so watch out!
A well-placed container filled with colorful plants provides a show-stopping focal point in this tropical-look garden plan. A tall purple-leaf canna in the center of the planter grabs attention with both its large leaves and brightly hued flowers. The heart-shape leaves of purple and chartreuse sweet potato vines create a cascade of color as they spill over the side of the container onto the surrounding plants. The twisted and contorted branches of a Harry Lauder’s walking stick make an exciting backdrop for the sun-loving planting. Don’t forget to be on the lookout for hummingbirds; they’ll especially be attracted to fuchsia’s unique blossoms that resemble layered, brightly colored skirts. Read more at Better Homes and Gardens…
