All Things Tropical: Create Your Own Backyard Oasis

At BOXHILL, we’re inspired by the vibrant and fresh jungle look of outdoor tropical style. Bright colors, palm trees, sunshine..who doesn’t love it? Here are a few tips for creating the ultimate outdoor tropical vibe in your own yard!

Go Green

Add plants. Lots of them. And don’t be afraid to go a little overboard. Mixing different shapes of leaves and getting the palm tree effect means you’re going to need a lot of green.  Palm trees are ideal, but if they don’t grow in your area, look for other green alternatives. We suggest looking at what your local botanical garden has to offer; chances are they will have a great selection of local plant life. Adding a wide variety of plants can help create a boho chic vibe and give a natural jungle feel.

Must Have Flowers

Go for orchids. They are tropical GOALS. Orchids grow naturally in the tropics, and hanging a few can transform your yard.  Other fun flowers include Mexican salvia and yellow bulbine. Creating a colorful backdrop for your outdoor patio can lighten up the atmosphere. And you may have some hummingbirds and butterflies for company.
