TROPICAL  APPEARING   XERISCAPE

A super tough, low maintenance, low water requirement, tropical appearing, xeriscape design, landscape.

Strategically placed "islands" of landscaping can link remote areas and help define space.
Signifigant and striking shapes become strong visual cues that offer relatedness and coalesce empty space.
Dramatic profile shapes like these soft leaf yuccas easily connect areas visually.
Although the landscape contains many exotic appearing plants, key elements link it into its natural surroundings.
Natural forms in plants that bloom year round welcome the owner home.
This landscape invites you to experience it, to walk around the corner and see what's there.
The two yucca pendulas framing the entry link and extend it into the foreground as well.
This landscape requires shaping and trimming as little as twice a year.
Large, dramatically shaped, glossy, or strap shaped leaves, combined correctly, appear tropical.
Taking advantage of areas that graduate from shade to sun will increase possibilities for plant combinations.
These arcing and winding beds contour empty space and connect the background to the foreground, divide and define the lawn.
Complimentary curves create a sense of dynamic movement and lead the eye to focal points.
New plants surrounding the native Post Oak trees must have absolutely low water requirements.
The exotic flowers of the caeselpinia are near enough to the walk to closely examine.
Just a touch of stone is all that is needed to tie the house to the landscape foreground.
Late summer and the Mediterranean - tropical appearing xeriscape is doing fine.
Plants that appear natural and unshaped, fit well in what remains of natural habitat.
The tropical xeriscape is doing well in spite of water rationing and a 3 year drought.
Not enough water to keep the grass alive and the landscape is still beautiful.
The natural shapes of palms, African Iris and yuccas are dynamic and exciting.
The very large amount of landscaping requires very little maintenance.
A striking and impressive view of a "tropical xeriscape" from the street intersection.
