I have just got back from a visit to Hong Kong and am pleased to feature the Hong Kong Disneyland landscaping style for your viewing pleasure.

I wasn't aware of how much planning had gone into creating the park, but I was struck by the variety of flowering plants and shrubs. The whole park is a vast botanical garden! I found out later that the horticulture teams of Walt Disney Imagineering had spent three years researching and locating suitable trees and shrubs to create the desired look. There were lovely flowerbeds many of which are filled with plants from southern China, Africa, India, Australia and New Zealand.
Main Street, U.S.A.
The landscaping here around the Plaza and Town Square is said to be typical of municipal parks in small towns in America at the turn of the century.
In the rainforest jungles of Adventureland where Tarzan lives, there are tropical shrubs and giant trees beside a man-made river.
Topiary Gardens of Fantasy Land
Leafy shrubs are shaped into animals that look like cute unicorns, dancing bears and dinosaurs.
