Our Love of Landscapes

At Paradise Landscapes, we care more about the product than the profit. Our passion is to create, enhance, and maintain exceptional landscapes that are aesthetically pleasing, functional, and environmentally friendly. We completely customize designs to meet the needs of each individual client, while incorporating attractive plants, functional and aesthetic hardscapes, and water features.

Paradise Landscapes is completely equipped to handle all landscape services, from complete landscape renovations to basic maintenance. Our experience is utilized in order to provide everything a landscape needs!

Our respect for Florida wildlife motivates us to keep all of our landscape services environmentally oriented. We take extra precautions to protect nature by organically recycling, composting, and mulching all of our debris.

Paradise Landscapes maintenance services are “Florida Best Management Practices” certified, and consistently follow the principles of the Florida-Friendly Landscaping Program. Our deep respect for the natural environment motivates our efforts to harmonize our designs and maintenance protocols to each individual site.
