Foliage Design is located in the lush Santa Cruz valley on what once was an old coco estate. The Santa Cruz valley was always recognized as a great area to cultivate foliage, whether coco trees or decorative tropical flowers. Christopher Talma, the founder of Foliage Design, moved the company into the valley in the early part of the nineties and began expanding his business. A nursery was erected to house semi-shade plants and to cultivate seedlings. Later on, an office was constructed to serve as the administration building for the company. However, one of Christopher's greatest achievements was the purchase of an old estate house on the hill overlooking the business.

 

With the same vision he used to transform regular gardens into tropical retreats, Christopher transformed the old estate house into a tropical villa. The Italian inspired house features ionic columns, an open air porch and sweeping views of the Santa Cruz valley. Of course, the garden was not forgotten. The house is draped by an ancient Saman tree that provides shade from the harsh mid-day sun as well as a home to several species of birds. Christopher spent years shaping and outfitting the garden using local and foreign foliage, never cutting away at the land but instead, working around its natural shape. Garden paths meander through heliconia, ficus trees and other foliage. Decorative sculptures are placed throughout the five acre garden to act as focal points and add to the Italian theme.

 

Christopher Talma passed away in the early part of 2009. However, the garden and business stand testament to his determination, vision and hard work. The company and house today continue to be family run by his children. Foliage Design has a renewed vision and direction to become Trinidad and Tobago's finest Plant Rental, Garden Maintenance and Landscape Company. With new talent and the wealth of experience of the current staff, Foliage Design will continue to grow into one of the region's great companies.
