When most people think of a tropical destination, it’s unlikely that they will think of Texas. But to go tropical is a state of mind rather than just a geographical location. It has much to do with the landscaping and plants, providing a Zen feeling and a sense of contentment after a hard day’s work. These designs are in high demand – Here is how to make a tropical oasis in Texas.

How to Create a Tropical Oasis in Texas

  • Pool

Tropical pool designs call for a freeform shape, meaning that a pool can work with whatever size and shape backyard you have. Usually in tropical pool designs, the pool interior surface is a light color to help stimulate the crystalline waters of an island. A beach entry is a sure way to give your pool a more of a natural, beach look. These entries have a gentle slope that allows for sitting and relaxing. To ramp up the design, add raised walls that accommodate a tropical planter or a grotto that adds beauty and privacy.

  • Plants

There are many plants that can make a backyard instantly transform into a tropical oasis. To make it more tropical, we suggest using plants that are weather-resistant and require low to once a week maintenance. Agave is a long-leaved succulent plant that is drought-tolerant and looks incredibly tropical. Aloe is another plant that works well in warm areas. Small palm trees are idyllic for your backyard, turning it into a tropical paradise.
