Landscape and Flower Bed Design
Providing Landscape & Flower Bed Design Services to Commercial & Residential Customers Throughout the Tampa Bay Area
A home’s landscape and flowerbed design contributes dramatically to it’s appearance. When well done, the landscape creates a setting for the home that complements and enhances the architecture.
An ordinary-looking home can be made eye-catching. A grand, imposing structure will be anchored to it’s surroundings with an equally impressive landscape.
A well-designed landscape is a permanent capitol improvement in your home. It contributes not only to the aesthetics of your home or business, as does the interior decor, but also to it’s value, which its furnishings do not.
In addition to it’s other benefits, a well-designed, well-executed, and well-maintained landscape can add anywhere from 10% – 40% to a property’s value, according to real estate appraisers and nurserymen.
Flower beds come in all sizes and outlines; they can be shaped asymmetrically to fit any corner or contour desired. Squared off symmetrically they have a rather formal appearance; curving meandering ones are more natural and informal looking.
