We Know Florida soil

Gardening can be a hassle, so let the experts do it for you. We know what can grow and thrive in our Florida soil better than anyone. Your garden is a focal point for any landscape. It provides life, beauty, and value to your home. We want to be sure it will look the best it can be. By providing expert advice on plant types, soil health, and garden design layouts, we can grow your garden together.

A Variety of Garden Designs

At Progressive, we are focused on what the customer wants first and foremost. Our garden design services are compatible with any type of garden you desire. If you’re unsure which type of garden design you want in your landscape try one of the styles below.

Native garden:

A native garden creates a scenery composed of all the best plants Florida has to offer. This option supports your local environment. If you are also lacking a green thumb, this option might be better for you as plants are most likely to grow in their native soil. Also due to Florida’s natural warm and sunny weather, our native plants are more drought tolerant, meaning you won’t need to stress if you forgot to water them.


Sensory garden:

A fine option for those that are stressed out and looking for a place to refresh. Sensory gardens featuring a combination of water and natural features to provide soothing sounds, smells, and sights. With this design theme, your garden can be an oasis you can relax in.

Rock garden:

If plants are too tedious to care for, or you want to break up the greenery, the clean design of rock gardens can be perfect for you. Rock gardens can be a textural element in your landscaping. With all the various colors and sizes, it can be a pleasing modern design.

Coastal garden:

A coastal garden is a kind of tropical garden suited for dry conditions and lots of sun. Perfect for our Florida climate! In a coastal garden you might see water elements or bright accents of terra cotta. You can have a tropical vacation without stepping a foot outside of your property.

Design your own:

Not every garden design is one size fits all. You have to consider your personal preferences and the layout of your landscape. You can take inspiration from each garden type or come up with something else entirely. Whichever garden that suits the dream vision for your home, we can bring it to life for you.

Plentiful Plants

Whichever garden design you choose, we can help you fill it with plants that will keep it looking lush year round. We can recommend florida-friendly flowers, like the state flower Coreopsis, that are drought resilient and sun loving. Your garden can include flowers like pentas, Mexican heather, zinnia, purslane, blue salvia, hibiscus, golden dewdrop and many more.

But flowers aren’t just for beauty, some can provide purpose too. Scarlet sage, bee balm, beach sunflower, milkweed and other pollinator plants can help the health of your garden and the environment. While attracting good bugs, you can keep bad bugs away with citronella, lemongrass, marigolds and other mosquito repellant plants.

Whether you want annuals or perennials, we can help you choose the best option for your garden and nurture it to bloom.

(And) Not Just Beautiful…

But your garden design can be functional too. A garden can be a social setting to entertain guests or host cookouts. It can also be a playground for your kids and pets. Or a garden can be that safe space you relax in after a long day of work, with a cool drink in your hand and a smile on your face. Our job is to ensure that your garden’s layout is suited to your needs, so all you have to do is enjoy the beauty of your surroundings.

Design Elements to Consider

To get you started on your garden’s journey, here are some design elements to consider when planning the layout of your garden:

Raised Garden Beds:

A raised garden bed not only keeps your garden looking clean and professional, but it also is better for your plants. Raising your garden bed provides room for your plants’ roots to breathe and also help the soil drain more efficiently. In colder climates, a raised garden bed can also extend your growing season, as keeping them raised from the ground will keep them warmer. However, as mentioned, our warm Florida climate lets us Floridians keep our plants growing all year round!

Consider Your Materials:

Garden design offers a wide range of materials for one to choose from. You could keep it classic with stone, wood or metal, or you could want a mix of all three. Or maybe you want to experiment with other materials like shells, terra cotta, tiles, or recycled plastic for your own unique garden. Whatever your design preference is, knowing your material preference will help create a cohesive design for your garden.

Structural Elements:

Consider the benefits of adding structure like trellises or pergolas or gazebos. Trellises will give you room to section off your plants. It gives them space to grow while also creating an illusion of “living walls.” Gazebos can provide a romantic space for you to relax while immersed in nature. It provides shade while still keeping you connected. Pergolas offer the best of both worlds, as it offers a place for both you and your plants.


Pathways, Hedges, and Fences

Creating a layout to your garden can give it a sense of order. Fences and hedges add privacy and borders. While a pathway can provide sectioning for your plants and guidance through your garden without compromising design. Whether you choose all three, or only one, giving the eye a line to follow will help shape your garden.


Water features

Create the sound of a babbling brook or a gentle waterfall with a water feature to add some sensory experience in your garden. Fountains, streams, waterfalls, or other water elements give your garden a peaceful atmosphere and a calming view for the eye. But it’s not only good for you, but wildlife too. If you’re a nature lover, add a water feature to attract local birds and other fauna to your door.


Your Home Outdoors

Your garden is an extension of your home. When you step into it you should feel relaxed, refreshed, and restored. With the temperate climate of Florida, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a living area outside. Create your oasis space today.


Patio or Porch

An outdoor space can be a perfect hub for social gathering to enjoy the garden you’ve created. Patios and porches can be the building spot for your outdoor living room. Add a porch swing for a place to relax and unwind. Add a grill to cook and host barbecues. Add a fireplace or firepit to keep you and your guests warm on colder nights or to roast marshmallows.A patio or porch can also be a great place to house potted plants and other plants that require more diligent attention, like a herb garden. The possibilities are endless.
