So what is so special with a Mexican-Style Patio?
First of all, we must say that we really LOVE the Mexican style design! The key element to a Mexican-themed garden is a space that offers a relaxed atmosphere to dine and socialize. Here you will have fun, barbecue parties with family and friends, but also the silent moments where you want to read books and newspapers or work with your computer. Did you know that most of the Southwestern gardens pull influence from Spanish Colonial and Moroccan architecture and style? To stay true to the original design, remember to incorporate a vibrant color scheme like bright yellows and warm reds, blue, green, yeah the colors never stops! Another element that should be incorporated in a Mexican garden design is water. South westerners use water to symbolize the livelihood of their community. You can add a well for a traditional feel or a water fountain for a modern touch. If the patio is really big, you can even have your own spa department! Wouldn’t it be great to have your own swimming pool or bubble bath spa? We here at Distrita love the idea about implementing as much rinning water as well. The fountains could contain colors as well, would be great for the dark night if the fountain lights change colors! Maybe it is so advanced that it plays music and the speed of the fontains depend of the kind of music! There are absolutely no limits! Although a patio can have a basic style as well. You don’t need to make the world’s most complicated style!

What kind of plants should I buy for my Mexican dream patio?
Our top advice is use as many cacti, fruit trees and broad leafed plants as possible—like birch, elm, oak, and maple. Those plants are typically found in the Southwest. If you live in a colder part of the world, it may be a good idea to buy artificial trees, Again, allow your plants to add color to the space. Tropical plants that offer a vibrant hue can add a lot of personality to your garden. When you visit your local plant shop, talk to someone who can educate you on the plants that are best for your region. This will ensure longevity of your plants. If you have allergies, you may always have photos of trees as part of the design, or if you want a hyper-modern patio, why not implement led screens, and change the trees based on the season!
Examples of Southwestern plants include bromeliads, bougainvillea, orchids, dahlia, agave and rex-begonia.
