Tropical Garden



Tropical Garden

Tropical Garden, In this garden we have the feeling that man has not interfered much in the landscape. As in the English style, the tropical garden also has natural contoured paths. Its essence is relaxed and averse to pruning and symmetries.


Created by landscaper Roberto Burle Marx, its main characteristic is certainly the use of species from tropical and subtropical regions. Brightly colored plants and sculptural shapes such as palms, dracaenas, bromeliads, heliconias, banana trees, gingers and orchids are among the many options. In this style, stones, lakes or fountains cannot be missing, always looking as natural as possible.

Tropical Garden

These gardens end up becoming the favorite of birds and colorful insects that add more life and beauty to the environment. Reinforce your attention to this and offer clean water and appropriate feeders to the birds.

Here, elements such as benches, pergolas, vases are welcome, as long as they integrate harmoniously. For this, pay attention to materials and textures that must be natural or good imitations of wood, stone, vine, wicker, sisal, bamboo, coconut, etc. Lighting fixtures can be discreet or rustic in appearance.
