Why settle for less than Paradise?

Have you ever wished you could have a beautiful garden? Cruising Pinterest and wishing there was some way to have what you want? We're not all trained gardeners but we know what we like, right?


Maybe you have a 'nice' yard in a nice neighborhood  but you've always wanted something that makes you say 'wow, nice'!

So all you really need is someone who has the vision and experience to make your wish a reality. So let's get started.

Here in Florida we have the privilege of living in just about as close to paradise as you can get. We have a really great's what we call subtropical. We can grow lots of beautiful tropical plants and our climate is very mild. And who doesn't like tropical? Think Bahamas with gentle ocean breezes :-) Can you picture the hammock and palm?

Florida-Style Challenges

Southwest Florida is not truly tropical, but rather we are SUB-Tropical. In other words, it gets a bit cold for some tropicals, and we also have salt considerations, soil issues (sandy and often alkaline), and bugs to beat the band. You can't always just plant stuff and expect it to grow.

And the weeds! Weeds love it here. We see lots of neglected, sad looking gardens, and sterile-looking and boring landscapes. What's one to do? Is it possible to have a great looking garden here in Florida without being a Rockefeller?

We can Help you Through it!​​

We've designed and installed landscape projects from a few hundred dollars to hundreds of thousands. No project is too large or small.

Patios, Decks & Garden Accents

One thing often overlooked in Florida landscaping is outdoor use areas, and even when landscaping is installed, often the details that make it enjoyable and special are ignored. We understand that it's often too hot to hang out outdoors in Florida, but we have beautiful weather during Fall, Winter and Spring when it's exhilarating to sit outside, in the right spot. Whether a small bench under a perfect tree, or a grand deck or patio, we can help you create the perfect outdoor space for your lifestyle.

We have experience in brick, concrete pavers, decks, outdoor lighting, garden walls and fence, retaining walls, containers, water features, garden accents and more. Don't settle for boring same ol' stuff that you see all over. We specialize in different, the special, the "Oh wow, that's amazing!" type of project. Let's get creative and create something magical!
