Golden Gate Estates Project
Old Pond - New Tropical & Butterfly Gardens.
This Project was borne more out of necessity. We converted an outdoor living space that had a very troubled old DIY pond (aka mosquito breeding facility.) We installed lush tropical plantings. The garden incorporated a hand carved Italian white marble fountain. The garden was situated near a road so planting privacy screening hedges was needed to complete the space. We also added a small butterfly garden for the clients daughter.
Naples Pine Ridge Project
Japanese Strolling Garden
The Japanese Strolling Garden is meant to create a peaceful space. Sounds of water from the Buddha Fountain ( yes I know, not Japanese) blend with Asian themed plantings of Bamboo, Tibochina, Silkfloss Tree, African Iris and ground orchids.
Fort Myers Villa Pines Project
Japanese Arched Koi Pond Bridge
We came upon this "floating bridge" (support structure had rotted away) in Crossing a 15 feet gap along a front entry walkway leading to the clients front door. We had to re engineer the the bridge building concrete footers with reinforced steel to keep the new bridge span above the water line. Using beefy 4 beefy 2x12 inch pressure treated lumber we created a slight curve in the structural bridge spans. The new walkway and bridge deck were planked with synthetic decking. Custom path lights where then installed to illuminate the bridge and path at night leading to the front door. You view view more Japanese garden bridges here.
