"We built a modern home and needed the landscaping to enhance the geometric lines of our house together with incorporating the lush vegetation which already existed on the site.

Campus Landscape, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tampa
"Campus Landscape, LLC is amazing! Todd, his crew, and partners completely transformed our yard from an absolute mess, into an outdoor paradise. He designed it and brought the total package. Sod, foliage, and decorative stones. Todd coordinated installation of a complete irrigation system, to ensure that our lawn continues to be beautiful. I can't say enough about Todd, and Campus Landscape!"

Paradise of Florida
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tampa
"Paradise landscaping just completed a major rehab of my outdated and overgrown landscape. I am very pleased with the results! From the planning stages to the finished product all went well. All plants chosen are suitable for Florida and my desire for color and low maintenance. Jarred kept in touch about the progress of the work and his crew was courteous and skilled. His final cost was in line with the estimate provided. All debris was hauled away and my property was left in pristine shape. My house looks great and I would not hesitate to work with Paradise, Jarred and his crew again."

Tampa Landscape Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tampa
"We hired Tampa Landscape Design and was extremely pleased from the start to finish. Lauren listened to our ideas and within 14 days she had a design that was perfect for our two story Mediterranean home. We did not have any idea what the thought process was when designing landscaping. But we knew we needed a professional. She directed us in every detail. Plants were set to the exact measure. Beautiful palms were added along with the appropriate grass, a walkway with stone and exterior lights. She handled the inventory which amounted to over 300 plants, worked with the crew diligently "in spanish as needed" which was impressive. Overall we will tell all our friends the great experience we had with Lauren & Tampa Landscape Design. Danny & Lori Tampa, Florida"

Dameron Designs
Landscape Architects and Designers in Tampa
"Dan designed a landscape and irrigation plan for the customer and handled the bidding process with the contractors. I found him to be very helpful to both the customer and my firm in determining what the customer wanted and providing this as a scope of work for bidding and contracting the job. Many times, I find customers unsure of what is the proper plant material or irrigation to sustain the material and they go with the best salesman or cheapest price believing all are created equal. With the professional eye of Dameron Designs, he handles this process to sort out the materials and ensure the customer gets what they pay for. I found his design to be extremely accurate and the few minor adjustments in the field was made with his approval for the betterment of the project. A true professional providing a valuable service to protect homeowners interests."

What does a landscape architect do?

The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Tampa house. From there the landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?

A landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Tampa will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Tampa:

  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
