Design Elements

with Louise McDaid, landscape designer.

What do you think of when the word
Tropical garden is said? Saying palms, coloured cocktail drinks with umbrellas
in them, lying in a hammock swaying gently in the breeze. Dipping you toes into
a pool.

Perhaps you did all these things
on your last holiday to a tropical isle, but wait, you can have it at home as
well. Maybe not all of it, but at least some of the features.

Over the next five weeks, Design
Elements will be talking about Tropical Gardens to suit any climate in
Australia. Today, you’re going tropical around the pool.

The whole garden doesn’t have to
be tropical. If you live in a cooler or
arid area, you might have a tropical theme within your garden style. Somewhere
there is a microclimate that suits those plants that were mentioned. You get
the idea.
