Landscape Installation Services in Florida

Contrary to what most people think, landscaping is so much more than planting trees and shrubs, and maintaining lawns. Landscaping consists of a wide variety of work that require specialized skills such as landscape installation, tractor work, landscape irrigation, plant fertilization, hardscapes, and so much more that can enhance your property’s curb appeal and functionality. Learn more about landscape installation services so you can get an idea on how they can benefit your own property.

Types of landscape installation services


Hardscaping is any type of practical or aesthetic structure in the outdoor space. It includes driveways, retaining walls, fences and benches and is one of the most important aspects in designing a landscape. The term hardscape refers to non-living structures in landscaping such as a stone wall or brick patio.


Softscapes refers to landscaping installation services involving organic materials such as grass, shrubs, annuals, among others. In this type of landscaping, the landscaper analyzes the location, then plans a suitable design for lawns, gardens, or yards for residential and commercial properties.

Landscape installation for privacy

If you live in a densely populated area, one of the first things to consider when remodeling your property is how to maintain your privacy. No one wants their neighbors to be scrutinizing them while they are having a pool party. Or having your balcony facing your neighbor’s messy backyard. Landscapers can come up with bespoke privacy solutions to block unsightly views and gain more privacy.

Living in Southwest Florida has blessed its residents with a climate wherein a lot of different vegetation that can thrive all year round. Rather than having expensive privacy fences installed, consider hiring a landscaping services company such as JMC Landscaping to install plants or trees that will serve as a natural privacy buffer. Plants like Areca palms, Clusia, and Cocoplum would make attractive and effective privacy screens.

Areca palms are considered one of the most sought-after screening plants for both residential and commercial landscapes. Butterfly palm, as it is sometimes called, Areca’s fronds are dense and full, making them a favorite not just for privacy but also as garden backdrops and accents.  Clusia is a popular hedge shrub of choice as well due to its dense foliage, low maintenance and quick growing nature. Cocoplum is a great choice too because it does not need a lot of care once established. Cocoplums can easily grow into a big bush or a 14-foot tree.

Aside from Areca, Clusia, and Cocoplum, the following are also great natural privacy screen options that don’t need a lot of maintenance and can thrive well in Florida’s conditions.

  • Non-Invasive Clumping Bamboo
  • Fishtail Palm
  • Ficus Benamina 
  • Viburnum awabuki

Things to consider for landscape installations

Choosing the right combination of hardscapes and softscapes is just half the work. Here are a few factors to think about when planning landscape installations.

  • Consider the type of installation that best suits your lifestyle. Some landscapes may require additional maintenance such as extra pruning, supplemental watering, or particular fertilization requirements.
  • If you need your new landscape installed at a particular date, make sure to plan at least two to three months in advance. This gives the ample time to choose the right landscaper for the job and for them to complete the installation.
  • Once you’ve chosen your landscaper, make sure to understand your contract before you sign. Some landscaping contractors charge additional fees for consultations and plans.
