relatively mild winters. For a tropical look, think big leaves and shots of bright color. For solid greenery: bamboo, eucalyptus, elephant ear, ginger and, of course, some sort of palm. For that shot of bright trop- ical color, you can incorporate cannas, assorted lilies, irises, hibiscus, birds of paradise, bougainvillea, coral tree, etc.


As with any landscape, in choosing the type and placement of plants, you need to plan out balance of color and scale, shading needs, main- tenance and so forth. When planning the landscape, have deck planter areas near the swimming hole so you can bring plants to the edge of the water, as found in nature.
