Small tropical gardens
Garden ideas for my new home.
Great idea! Using an old spice rack or closet door organizer as a vertical planter - saves space, amount of soil used and convenient for weeding and harvesting...you can line the wire shelves with old screen strips - if you live in a tropical climate you can use coconut mesh formed on from the trunks as old fronds fall off.

Simple Ways to Add Water to the Garden - FineGardening
Create harmony between water features and surrounding elements. The simple, leaflike forms of concrete basins designed by Little and Lewis blend beautifully with terra-cotta pavers. Pots of lush foliage plants echo the form of the basin, while bananas and other tropical plants provide an inviting backdrop.
