Tropical Lanscape Design vs. Succulent Seascape??
We live in San Diego, CA and moved into a home that has been beautifully landscaped with a tropical pool/landscape theme. We want to keep this and add to it. However, there is a center island which currently holds 4 king palms -- all other plants/flowers died shortly after we moved in.
I am now trying to decide whether to replant something to match the tropical theme or go in a different but similar direction to pull in the pool (and my love of the ocean). I was inspired after finding a Sunset Magazine article on Jeff Moore's Succulent Seascapes Garden(7/05). To see, go to: http://www.sunset.com/sunset/garden/article/0,20633,1065042,00.html
I'm a newie w/o much knowledge of design or what would work well togeter. I wanted to see what others thought would look best. Thanks!!! Jesse
