Just love the sandstone with the tropical planting. Have started this in my front yard.

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 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).

This is a really cool way to have a pool. A lot of people want a pool in their house but traditional pools can get borni for. A wrap around pool would be perfect because it is a new and exciting way to have a pool in your house and it looks classy.

Note the use of shape and colour with the plants around the area, with their natural qualities enhanced by the solid and surprisingly warm colour behind them.
