Landscaping: Design & Installation

LandscapingFor over 30 years Greenscapes has increased the beauty and value of Manasota homes and businesses, from modest properties to grand estates, by designing and installing beautiful landscapes.

Greenscapes designs and installs outdoor spaces which:

  • make the first impression you want to project
  • augment the architecture of your house/function of your building
  • take into account the realities of your space and the living materials that will thrive
  • appreciate over time, growing in beauty and timelessness

Whatever You Need

Few jobs are too large or too small for us.  We can simply provide your yard with some seasonal color or we can design and create a statement garden for you.

A perfect landscape requires 4 distinct components which need to work together in harmony.  Greenscapes provides the full package:

  1. The Greenscape
    Selecting and planting turf, plants and trees which reflect your taste, can thrive in the setting and provide needed function, e.g. privacy, shade, safety.

  2. The Hardscape
    Installing paths, walls, terraces, patios, steps, boulders, etc. to shape your outdoor space and to direct people in and around the landscape.

  3. The Irrigation
    Selecting the right kind of irrigation, either low flow, such as drip line or microspray, or high flow such as fixed spray or rotor, or a combination of the two.  Designing and installing a system which maximizes cover and minimizes water wastage across the entire greenscape.

  4. The Lighting
    Planning and installing the right combination of path lighting, accent lighting and function lighting to enable full enjoyment of your outdoor living area after dusk.  Helping you to choose hidden lighting or statement lighting to suit your taste and the character of your garden.

2 Dimensional and 3 Dimensional Designs

We can create and print 2D designs for you to sign-off which you can also use to seek needed authority and/or grants.  For larger scale jobs Greenscapes can also craft 3D interactive videos which allow you to see what your landscape will look like surrounding your specific house/building.  The 360 degree tour will enable you to immerse yourself with every detail of our design and modify it as you wish.
