Tropical Swimming Pool Plan Planting Plan

To some, this is the best part of the landscape, the planting plan. This plan has all the plants called out and located in the landscape.

This plant palette was chosen from plants that thrive in the climate of San Diego, CA, zone 10 of the USDA climate zone map.

If you live in another part of the country, my advice would be to take the plan to your local garden center for their recommendations for substitute plant material.

You would be suprised at how many plants will contribute to the tropical look and still survive a more punishing climate.

If you do substitute, just try to replace plants with plants that accomplish the same job, screen, accent, ground cover, etc. That way you get the same overall effect and retain the integrity of the plan.

Most of all, have fun with it. If you ahve a favorite plant, by all means include it in your yard.
