Landscape Design: For the Beauty of the Earth


First impressions matter in the design world. Besides designing an impressive architecture and interior, crafting an equally impressive landscape to welcome visitors is just as important. But landscaping involves various intricacies that depend on the design, construction and in the long run, maintenance. Thanks to Tropical Line Design, we have a one-stop solution for landscaping.

Tropical Line Design has been working with notable designers from home and abroad like the likes of Bill Bensley, Belt Collins International, Burega Farnell and Karl Princic. Most recently, Tropical Line has completed St. Regis Bali Resort, The Mulia Bali, Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort, Fairmont Sanur Beach Bali, Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta (Capital Palace), Radisson Blu Bali Uluwatu, Yogyakarta Marriott Hotel, Bali National Golf Club House & Villa Nusa Dua Bali. Though hotels and resorts are Tropical Line Design’s bread and butter, the company is not a stranger to other commercial projects like office buildings and residences.

The principal Tamyani Adi Kusumo, or YeYeQ, is an experienced designer. He studied at Universitas Udayana, majoring in Art and Design Study Programme in 1984. Subsequently, he started several businesses, including establishing Tropical Line Design in 1990.

“The more I do landscape projects, the more sure I become that this is my path, so I decided to focus on this passion,” says the man who has travelled 42 countries on his Harley Davidsons or BMW adventures. “Landscape is anything outside the building skin and as an outdoor person, this is what I enjoy the most.”Landscaping is extensive work. It starts with the design, followed by construction of hardscape and softscape, and eventually, built landscape requires maintenance.

To carry out these phases, Tropical Line Design has three main divisions: landscape design team, landscape construction team, and landscape maintenance team with their own nursery. These solid divisions allow Tropical Line Design to also work on prestigious design & build projects. All projects are handled carefully by 108 experienced team members in Bali and Jakarta to ensure clients get exactly what they need through personalised service.

None of the stages (design, build, supply and maintenance) is to be overlooked. Lacking one of these would make the project imperfect. That’s where Tropical Line Design steps in. The company thinks of everything so that you can enjoy your dream green space. Having surrounded by their work, one would feel the natural breeze in the architecture and let us see the natural beauty of the earth.
