Living in the tropics especially in urban areas makes you have to be smart to deal with hot weather and high humidity by presenting green open spaces at home. One type of garden suitable for homes in the tropics is none other than tropical gardens.
Tropical gardens are composed of various types of plants, ranging from trees, shrubs, tropical flowers to grasses, which are resistant to solar heat and intense rainfall. Plants that are also named as tropical plants are deliberately left to grow lush and resemble the appearance of tropical forests. Here are some of the inspirations that we have summarized as tropical garden designs that you can model.
Modern and Tropical Shades
Although tropical gardens are identical to the dominance of green plants, the addition of other elements can also be done so that the garden appears more modern. Not limited to dry elements such as gravel, footpaths or paving blocks, outdoor furniture, and decorative ponds can also be presented.
Tiny Forest in the Back Terrace
If you have a large open area, you can create an atmosphere of tropical forests like the inspiration above. Plants used as a component of tropical gardens cover the entire strata. Planting shrubs, shrubs, flowers and trees can be presented simultaneously in this garden design.
Blends with The Room
Tropical gardens that are built around a house can make the environment outside and inside the house feel more fresh and natural. Combine broad-leafed ornamental plants, trees, and vines for gardens that are enclosed from the edge to the center of the house as in the inspiration above. The loss of the bulkhead separating the inside and outside of the room will make the eyes spoiled by the beauty of a tropical garden that can be seen from various angles.
Inner Court with a Minimalist Tropical Garden
The presence of inner open spaces is often missed due to limited land and the high demand for other spaces. In fact, open space functions as a cavity so that buildings can ‘breathe’ more smoothly. Tropical gardens can be presented in the form of an inner court or indoor garden. The location itself can stand free, optimize the wall, or connect directly to other rooms.
Vertical Tropical Garden
The absence of open land or areas without land exposure is not an obstacle to presenting a tropical garden. Gardening in tropical gardens can be done vertically so you can use the walls that limit the terrace to be planted with vines and hedgerows. Garden designs like this also require more practical care.
