Small Yard & Small Garden Landscaping Ideas

For my little patio! Take Advantage of Texture Big, bold tropical plants create a lush feel. Their large leaves can change the scale of a small space to help it feel larger. (Plus, many tropical plants are super cool!

Tropical Landscape Bed -  This lush bed contains only 4 plants. The contrast in heights & color give it a well-balanced look. All of the plants will work for zone 9 (except palm-see below for alternatives), but a very cold night or frost may cause some to have foliage damage or die back to the ground-returning in Spring. Christmas Palm Tree [Queen, Foxtail, and King best suited for zone 9]. Elephant Ear (Colocasia). Hawaiian Ti Plants (Cordyline Terminalis). Philodendron (Xanadu).

Good example of layering - can use these sorts of plants in most of your garden beds. So you've got tall palms at the back, the Elephant ear adds drama, the cordylines (red ones) colour, and the lower philodendron covers the ground.

Tropical garden with pretty walkway

Lush tropical planting and informal path. Pinned to Garden Design by Darin Bradbury. Walkway would also look great in non-tropical woods. I like having space for lanterns.
