Would you like to go on a permanent vacation in your own backyard? A palapa is a great way to add the feeling of being on a tropical getaway to your landscape. Just be prepared that your friends and relatives may not want to leave your island getaway…
A palapa brings a feeling of being on a tropical island right to your very own backyard. Palapas go hand in hand with tropical island resorts and relaxing vacations in the sun. Adding one to your landscape plan will allow you to feel like you are hosting a luau every time you head outside.
Palapas provide a great place to enjoy the fresh air, while also staying safe from the sun’s rays. When hosting a crowd, there will always be some people who prefer the sun and some people who need to sit in the shade. Give the shade people what they are looking for with a natural sun shelter.
Once a palapa is installed, there is really very little that you have to do in order to keep it. The natural fibers are designed to stay outside (unlike an umbrella), and is breathable when the winds come blowing through (also unlike an umbrella). Most thatching on a palapa has an average life span of 4-10 years, making it almost maintenance free for many years.
Palapas can be used by themselves, or incorporated with other design aspects in your yard. You can put one at the edge of your pool, over your outdoor kitchen or bar, or just use it for seating out of the sun. Kids love playing under a palapa because it feels like a natural tent or hut. It would be a great place for a sandbox or playscape to keep the kids out of the direct sun.
