A Thailand Tropical Garden Update – 18 months on
We bought a bare block of land in November 2017 and in January 2018 started work to turn it into one of Isan’s most beautiful private tropical gardens. This is a photo record of how we are going to achieve that target after 18 months.
This is very much a specialised post for those readers who enjoy gardens, especially ones stacked with tropical colours and plants. I will add links to where you can find previous posts as I have published a few to demonstrate how quickly one can establish a garden such as this in the wonderful Thailand climate. Developing a garden like this one is not for those expats who just want to sit back and watch their lawn growing. It requires constant attention but for Gaun, my wife, and I it is a real pleasure and forms part of our everyday life here in the northeast of Thailand.
This is mostly a photo story with not a lot of words. The photos are in no particular order and are intedned to give you a feel for what the gardens would look like if you visited us and wandered through them, praferably with a glass of something cold in your hand!
The Iasn timber rice hut we relocated to the garden is now almost hidden behind a wall of tropical colour. Each section of the barden is designed to be a unique visual experience and there is nowhere you can see all of the space in the one view.

Our reclaimed Isan fishing boat is looking more settled all the time.
