Landscaping Poolside upper deck suggestions?
We are looking to put in some decorative potted plants on the top deck of our pool area. They need to be controlled growth (dwarf varieties?) in order to avoid obstructing the views - or infringing on the screened in "lanai" as they call it.
We already have two 20" pots and two 16" pots for a start (empty) but will gladly change that plan for something better...
This is Florida - so we get extreme amounts of rain and humidity, strong coastal winds - and maybe a few months of good weather where it supposedly dries out in Winter.
They can't be "dirty" plants - dropping things in the pool all the time.
They shouldn't be bug magnets - (despite the screened in area).
The less attention they need the better. We will try to get them on a drip sprinkler, but no guarantees we'll have access to that.
Some kind of tropical look and/or flowers would be nice. Ideas anyone? Links to sample pics would be helpful too if you have them...
Thanks in advance!
