Tropical Garden Styles

Tropical garden styles are perfect for homeowners who like a lush and exotic landscape. Include a large terrace for dining with a floating sunshade overhead for protection from the heat. Add natural rattan or bamboo woven furniture such as a dining table, chairs and recliners. Including a water feature that resembles a waterfall is a lovely idea. Movement around the garden can be via winding steppingstones or gravel paths. Dark green dense vegetation is a priority in a tropical garden with staggered planting to create depth and interest. Add vibrant colours with exotic plants or pretty parasols. The in-house design team at Acacia Gardens has created a list of ten tropical garden features you may wish to include.

About Tropical Garden Styles and Design

A tropical garden is a lush landscape full of exotic and tropical plants to create dense vegetation.

Contemporary homes are perfect for creating a tropical landscape.

Use wood or composite decking with a distressed appearance in either a natural or black colour. Invest in rattan or bamboo furniture.

Dark green is the overriding colour for a tropical garden. Add hints of orange, white or red for colour or black bamboo for drama.
