Josh,

Since many days I enjoy watching the pictures of the progressing concrete work, after I have been impressed by all the palms, but I am wondering;
Which kind of ground-cover will you plant there, if any? bromeliads, crinums?
I am not sure crotons and cordylines we use in srilankan gardens can grow?

Looking forward to seeing new pictures. Thanks

Philippe

The pathways look fantastic and will really make a huge difference to the finished palm garden, When i return to California in around 2 yrs your palm garden er i mean Arboretum will be on my list for sure.

Methinks you'll be crashing in the tiki guest house that night.

DAMN!!!!!  You're not messing around, first the serious palms and now the hardscape walking path.  The path to legendary status in the palm gardening or plant gardening if you keep up at this rate.

great question Philippe.

I'm not really sure what type of ground cover and companion plants I'm going to use.

I was thinking about adding some types of bromeliads and rare flowering trees.

I'm always open to suggestions.

Well, now that the pathway project is finally over with and I have recharged my batteries I'm back to planting in the garden.

Today we muscled in a very large syagrus schizophylla in a 30" box. I have been wanting to plant this palm for more than 3 yrs now.

I'm super excited to see finally this palm in the ground.

Whew!

IMG_4179.JPG.c04fa45ffdb150cdd5ba0d91d95 it took 2 of us with a huge box dolly to move this monster

IMG_4180.JPG.768a46a4fc1880f41c8d4fb9b34it was hard to negotiate this turn so we had to stop to stratigize ..lol

IMG_4181.JPG.934d8645cf0d1e22d384f380429not quite yet...

IMG_4182.JPG.e666226e587497272aab35f9ffbyup, this is the perfect spot :)
