Few places in the country offer the diversity of landscape design possibilities as southwest Florida.
When planning a landscape, a designer can utilize a full palette of plant material with everything from exotic tropical palm trees, fruit trees, ornamentals, cacti and succulents, and of course native trees and shrubs. However the available water on the property, the drainage situation, soil condition and availability of irrigation and amount of impervious surfaces present will play a major role in the choices a landscape designer will make. Landscape designs for homes that are on salt water will have to be particularly sensitive to a variety of water issues including, storm-water drainage and fertilizer use, saltwater intrusion into the irrigation well, seasonal irrigation restrictions and a plan for the eventuality of a flood, soaking everything in saltwater for a short time. At Grants Gardens we look at the entire picture when planning a landscape design from the available water on the property, to drainage, environmental issues, soil conditions and the micro-climate in different areas of the property. After we have developed a complete understanding of the water situation on the property we can then plan a design featuring the plants, drainage, hardscape and irrigation elements that will allow for a beautiful yet sustainable landscape, designed to offer the best of nature, yet withstand the worst of nature.
