What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Backyard Bliss: Have a Master Plan
Lush and tropical plantings create a true getaway in this yard.
Becky Harris added this to Container Garden Inspiration
Potted plants can be integrated into a garden planted into the ground.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Tropical Garden Style
Lush foliage is essential. A tropical garden is not the place for the plant collector who wants every plant to have its own spotlight position. Tropical gardens are filled with plants, overlapping one another, climbing on top of one another, filling in the space below and up high. Density is key.Design tip: A sloped yard makes it easy to elevate plants so they can be seen while still maintaining the sense of a densely planted space. If your yard isn't sloped, use raised beds and pots at the back of the space to create that feeling.
Bring houseplants outdoors. This irresistible vignette of bromeliads (Alcantarea imperialis, zones 9b to 11) and tree ferns (Cyathea cooperi, zones 9 to 11) could have been shot in Hawaii, but this photo was actually taken in Seattle. By staging tropical plants in ceramic urns in staggered heights amidst soft greenery, AHBH Landscape Architecture has set a stage than can be easily dismantled before the first frost.This look can be easily re-created, provided you keep the leaves from getting burned by slowly moving the plants to a shady area outdoors. Houseplants appreciate the fresh rainwater and humidity that they receive in the garden, and you'll appreciate the exotic vibe that they lend to your backyard retreat.

Make it lushBy their very nature, tropical plants can be a bit jungle like and you could be mistaken for thinking you were in Papua New Guinea or Fiji. Some varieties have bulky, fleshy leaves which easily create density, however planting smaller varieties close together will also foster that lush appearance in your garden.
