    Hoping to completely overhaul my entire yard in the next couple of months once it starts to cool down a bit.

    The previous owner didn't seem to do anything except mow the lawn in the last 10 years. I will probably be ripping up anything that isn't in the palm tree family.

    Looking for some ideas. Any good websites to help with design? Care to share any pics of your own work?

    Thankfully there are no deciduous trees or bushes in the back yard so the pool stays pretty clean even without being screened in.

    You don't ever have to worry about freezes do you? I planted some palms that were supposed to be resistant down below what we get here (Texas) and it took some of them a few years but they eventually all froze out. The temp was high enough that it wasn't supposed to kill them but I think it lasted longer than the plants could take. Those things really stink when they die.

    I am already good with palm trees. There are about 10 royal palms throughout the front and back, the entire inside of the fence in the back is lined with areca palms and there are a couple large traveler palms.

    I just don't know where to begin with the lower, ground plants/flowers, landscape rocks, mulch, etc.
