Small tropical gardens
Garden ideas for my new home.
Great idea! Using an old spice rack or closet door organizer as a vertical planter - saves space, amount of soil used and convenient for weeding and harvesting...you can line the wire shelves with old screen strips - if you live in a tropical climate you can use coconut mesh formed on from the trunks as old fronds fall off.

Create harmony between water features and surrounding elements. The simple, leaflike forms of concrete basins designed by Little and Lewis blend beautifully with terra-cotta pavers. Pots of lush foliage plants echo the form of the basin, while bananas and other tropical plants provide an inviting backdrop.
