Stroll through a Florida Landscape designers backyard. Plant names and more of tough tropicals

Stroll through my garden with me to see some of Florida’s tropical plants/trees that last and look great In all seasons. I’m a landscape designer in Vero Beach FL. Sharing some of my absolute favorites plants and trees I use daily in my designs. I’ll explain a little about their temperaments and what areas of the garden they can be used in. If you live along with the Space or Treasure coast then this may be a helpful video for you. Hope it inspires the rest of the plant addicts like me to get out in their garden and plant. If you would like more help with having me come out. My husband and I own Construction Landscape co. In Vero Beach Fl. Reach out to us by 772-492-8382 or check out the how it works page for more info. Thank you and hope you enjoy the tour!

    3.18.22 – Hello Jennifer – what a beautiful backyard, you have given me so much inspiration that I have a big question for you. I am looking to plant a foxtail palm next to an established 30′ (regular?) palm tree. It would be 5.5′ ft away. Would that be too close? All the nursery tags say 15′-20′ away. Looking at your yard, it seems they are a bit closer. But I wanted an expert opinion first. Thank you in advance!! Keep those videos coming, they are delicious eye candy!

  8. Margaret Maguire on April 17, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    You have a beautiful yard and I do love the Madagascar Palm. I hate thorny plants but I might make an exception with that one. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Karyn McCorcle on April 17, 2022 at 6:23 pm

  23. Bud Curtis on April 17, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    Great video on the progression of your great landscape. What is the silvery, bromeliad-yucca looking plant in the foreground at 31.46?

  24. Debbie Verret on April 17, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Never perfect? Looks pretty perfect to me. Love your knowledge and well spent time inspiring others to do the same.

    Oh my gosh I am 6 minutes in and already drooling. You are my plant spirit guide!! I am going to binge watch your entire channel! I am a novice, located in the Tampa Bay area the area. My backyard is currently a blank slate (with blinding white vinyl fence), starting from scratch, and I am here for the gospel! XOXO

  27. Jaime Brestel on April 17, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    How do you maintain your perfect edges between mulch and grass without a physical border?

  28. Gayathri Sridharan on April 17, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Which sod variety is this? Beautiful garden, love it

    Gorgeous wow..this is very inspiring. I think I will start on my grass first lol.

  39. Mary Lisa George on April 17, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Lovely. Moving to Panama in a year and this helps a lot. Living in the north, I’m not as familiar with tropicals and this will be a humongous learning curve as I have a cottage garden in Michigan.

  40. Carol McGlocklin on April 17, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    I really want to learn how to combine beauty and function—feed me, body and soul to soar.

  41. Jenny Jacome on April 17, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Please come to Boca Raton, FL and do my backyard. You are an artist!

  42. Carol Smith on April 17, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Absolutely loved your video. Wrote down many names of plants in your yard. There was one plant I could not find. You called it a dioon palm aka dinosaur palm. I tried to find this. Is there another name for this palm ? thank you, keep the videos coming. Want to watch all.

  43. K More on April 17, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Thanks for sharing! Totally my inspiration 🌞 wonderful job!!!

  44. Tatyana Lel on April 17, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    My red ti cordoline frosted here in Jax when it was cold, what should I do now? How to revive them?

  45. Marilou Dizon on April 17, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Makes me dizzy. Too fast. I could have enjoyed it.

  46. ctysonjr1963 on April 17, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Heb 9:27)
    And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)
    I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5)
    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)
    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13)

  49. MultiAkantor on April 17, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Gorgeous garden and landscaping! I am trying to make something like this come to life and your video was SO HELPFUL! Thank you!
    One question: will these plants survive if they are all planted so close together at the same time? or do you have to plant them in stages (and if so, what should come first)? Thank you!!!
