ARTISTRY IN THE LANDSCAPE
Thanks to the work of our resident landscaper, Helen
Murphy, visitors to the Mayan Princess are enchanted
by the extensive gardens that grace the pool and delight
the eye throughout the property.
less than a year under the guidance of her experienced
hands, an exotic palette of soft, lush foliage, breathtaking
flowers and truly unusual plants has emerged. Unmistakably
tropical, various palm species dot the landscape, providing
humidity and shade for a diverse assortment that includes
hibiscus, gingers, terrestrial orchids, iris and striking
varieties of heliconia, some with dramatic hanging blooms,
highlight walkways and lead to stepping stones across
the pool. Unique combinations of color and texture are
tucked into nooks and crannies between artfully arranged
rocks, freeform hills and valleys. Strolling along the
paths from the beach or road, or seen from in the pool
or out, Helen’s spectacular creation is a treat
for the senses.
heading to Central America, Helen gained considerable
experience in downtown Manhattan where her flower design
and landscape business in Trump Tower catered to Bloomingdale’s,
Hermes and top name clients like Ralph Lauren and Donald
native of Brooklyn, Helen has lived in Honduras since
1986, first on Guanaja, then Roatan for a brief stay,
and on to Cayos Cochinos and eventually La Ceiba, on
the Honduran mainland where she opened her nursery.
Last year, at John Edward’s request, Helen returned
to Roatan and the island lifestyle she loves.
you’re visiting the Mayan Princess, you may find
her hidden behind a thick screen of plants, secateurs
at the ready, or sharing her vast knowledge of tropicals
with curious guests. Stop by and introduce yourself,
and if you have any questions, Helen is your gal…she
loves to talk about plants.
