How We Design Beautiful Landscapes

Designing a landscape that you can enjoy and be proud of is a complex and multi-step process.  Landscape design requires a great deal of thought and care to ensure that the end result will meet your needs and preferences. A well-designed landscape not only adds beauty and value to your property but also enhances your lifestyle and increases the enjoyment you get out of your property.

Design Considerations

Here are the factors that we need to consider when designing your new landscape:

#1.  Lay of the land: The topography of the land, including its slope, elevation, and drainage patterns, can have a significant impact on the design of a landscape. These factors can affect the placement of features such as patios, retaining walls, and water features.

#2.  Size of the area: The size of the area that is being designed will also affect the design. We must consider the amount of available space, and how best to use that space to create a cohesive and functional design.

#3.  Use of plants: Plants are an essential part of any landscape design, and the choice of plants must be carefully considered. We must consider factors such as the growing zone (Central Florida is 9B - 10B), soil type, sun exposure, and plant growth characteristics. We must also consider your preferences and the purpose of the plants, whether they are for shade, color, privacy, or aesthetic appeal.

#4.  Plant Growth At Maturity: When selecting plants as part of your landscape design, we must consider how they will grow and how big they will be at maturity. Your landscape 2, 3, or even 5 years down the road will change as your plants grow.  This is an important design detail we need to consider to ensure that the plants do not outgrow their designated spaces or become an obstacle for maintenance in the future.

#5.  Hardscaping: Hardscaping, which includes features such as patios, walkways, and retaining walls, can be an integral part of your landscape design. We must consider the function and aesthetics of these features and how they will fit into the overall design.

#6.  Softscaping:  Softscaping is all of the softer, natural elements of your landscape.  This could include lawn areas, garden beds, landscape beds, hedges, shrubs, and trees.  Do you want a landscape that is low maintenance?  Do you want a landscape that reduces watering requirements? Or how about natural habitat for local wildlife?  These are factors we need to consider with your landscape design.

#7:  Budget:  We know not everyone likes to talk about their budget but this is critical to getting a great design.  We can design beautiful outdoor spaces but we don't want to provide you with ideas and concepts that are outside of your price range.  If we know and understand your budget we can ensure the options we provide are going to stay within your range.  We don't want to design a landscape that you cannot afford to build.

The Design Process

Step #1.  Consultation: We will meet with you on your property to discuss your needs, preferences, and budget.

Step #2.  Site analysis: We will conduct a thorough analysis of the site, including its topography, soil type, drainage, and sun exposure.

Step #3.  Design concept: We will create a preliminary 2D or 3D design concept, including the layout of features and the selection and layout of plants.

Step #4.  Design development: We will refine the design concept, taking into consideration any feedback you have.  We want to make sure you're 100% happy with the design before proceeding.

Step #5.  Final design: We will present you with the final design, including a detailed plant list and hardscape specifications which will include the specific types and styles of materials being used.

Step #6.  Installation: Once the design has been approved by you, we will then schedule and oversee the installation of your new landscape.

Questions About Landscape Design?

We've tried to answer some of the most common questions our customers ask about landscape design.

2D designs are flat, blueprint-style layouts of your landscape plan. They're great for understanding layout and space. 3D designs, however, offer a lifelike visualization of what the final project will look like, including textures, colors, and how the space feels.

Absolutely! We can incorporate existing elements such as trees, structures, or favorite plants into the new design, ensuring a seamless blend of old and new.

In Central Florida, sustainable and eco-friendly landscaping trends are gaining popularity. This includes native plant gardens that require less water, natural stone or paver hardscaping, and outdoor living spaces like kitchens and fire pits for year-round enjoyment.

Yes, strategic landscape design can enhance privacy. We use elements like fencing, privacy hedges, and strategically placed trees and shrubs to create a natural barrier while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your property.

The time to create a landscape design plan varies based on the project's complexity. For most residential projects in Central Florida, it can take anywhere from a 7-10 days. This allows us to thoroughly understand your needs and carefully plan each detail.

Absolutely! Your feedback is crucial. After presenting the initial design, we welcome your input and will make revisions to ensure the plan meets your vision. We typically allow for a set number of revisions within the project scope to refine the design to your satisfaction.

Several factors influence material choice: aesthetic preferences, maintenance requirements, durability, and budget. In Central Florida, we also consider the local climate and the material's ability to withstand seasonal changes.

In landscape design, flexibility is key. If unexpected challenges arise, such as site constraints or material availability, we communicate these promptly and provide alternative solutions. Our experience allows us to adapt and find creative ways to overcome such challenges.

What Our Customers Say...

Orange Pop

I'll be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first. Not because of the quality of work because I read the reviews. I was wondering if it would be worth the money that I was spending. Micheal assured me that it would be. His knowledge of landscaping is unmatched. His professionalism is TOP TIER. Tree of Life Landscape and Design turned my disaster of a yard into something I can be proud to show off to friends and family.

I can't say enough good things about Michael and Tree of Life Landscaping. I needed to redesign my back patio area because the existing landscaping encroached on my neighbor's property. Michael helped me re-design the area. I wanted to re-use as much of the current plants and hardscape materials as I could, and he was wonderful about doing that. He never tried to "upsell" me, but rather worked with me to transplant healthy plants and re-use bricks, wall stone and pavers. A lot of landscapers wouldn't do that -- they just want to pull out the old and put in all new. I had to do the project in "phases", and Michael was very flexible accommodating my schedule. He let me do the pieces I wanted to do myself, and brought in his team for the pieces where I needed professional help. I highly recommend his services.

February 9, 2024

From day one, Michael and team went above and beyond to create the backyard paradise of our dreams. Attention to detail, professionalism, craftsmanship, clear communication and flexibility are just some of the qualities that have us excited and eager to complete more projects with them. While Michael was always open to our suggestions and ideas, he brought plenty of his own (and often better) to the table. The job site was kept clean, project phases were completed in a timely manner and on budget (which was reasonable). As much as we want Michael and team available for our projects, we highly recommend them for yours.

Michael is very professional he makes sure that he understands what you want and gives you design ideas. With his help we were able to customize a beautiful patio. We were so happy we had him take out the builder grade landscaping in the front of our home and design a custom landscaping with lighting. We love his work!!

May 23, 2023

Mike and I partnered up in 2021 two years after the purchase of my home. While the property was beautiful, it was quite overgrown and unmanageable. Tree of Life came in for a major yard cleanup, which included the removal of many very large agave plants and light tree trimming. In 2022, another cleanup project began in the front yard to remove a "forest" of overgrown palmetto bushes and masses of unwanted ferns. With each cleanup project, my visions of a more beautiful landscape became clearer. Then, in May 2023, Mike accepted the challenge of deconstructing old (and dangerous) concrete step system, converting it into a safe path from one elevation to another that matched the casual feel of my yard and home. Using my general ideas, Mike's creativity kicked in. Before and after pictures highlight the stages of this particular project. As each new project is completed, Mike knows I look forward to working with Tree of Life for the next phases of my yard transformation. I will continue to call on Mike for all of my landscape projects. All of the previous reviews are 100% accurate. I highly recommend Mike. Allow him an opportunity to help you bring new life to your landscape!

Michael and team at Tree of Life transformed our front yard like my wife has always wanted. He came out and worked with us to come up with a great design but was very flexible once the installation got underway. We made some design and plant changes easily which turned out great. He brought samples of rocks to allow us to select and made excellent design recommendations. He also installed new low-voltage lights which really make our yard "shine" at night. Finally, Michael extended our driveway with additional pavers and pressure washed/sealed them as well. There were a few minor hiccups but Micheal kept us informed and was always very level-headed even when things didn't go as planned. He's a great person to work with. We'd definitely use this team again and are very happy with our results (before and after pictures included).

We are extremely pleased with the landscape design and water feature installation Michael and his team provided. They went above and beyond with creating brilliant solutions for our unique needs. If you want it done right and at a good value, Tree of Life Landscape & Design is the company to hire. (Please ignore the exterior walls in desperate need of pressure washing and painting - that's next)
