Arrow Planning out a pond with palm trees

I am really into water features when it comes to landscaping and I have always been a big fan of palm trees so I am working on designing a pond along with palm trees and other tropical plants to surround it. I have been looking up different photos of ponds with nearby palms for inspiration as I create my dream landscape.



I am trying to decide what kind of palms I will want to buy to make it look the best that I can. I have also been looking for inspiration for my design in the local area. I really like what I have seen so far.



If you have been so lucky to have a pond already or to create your own and surrounded with palm trees I would love to hear from you. Do you have any tips that I might need to know? I would really appreciate your feedback and advice. I would also love to see some pics of what you have done! Thanks!

Have you seen a Kentia palm? Check those out I dont have $$$ for a pond but they do make your palce look like Hawaii. Also Look up the Spindal Palm those are great looking too. soo many palms to choose from do some research on what palms you want they will suit their owners like dogs do. you dont get a hyper breed of dog if the owner is elderly and needs a lap dog same thing with trees depends on you!
