Every yard in Lee County, both commercial and residential, deserves Florida-friendly landscape design services!

If you have limited time, patience, or skill, why not allow the experienced professionals here at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape to provide the required design plans?
Whether you decide to use professional guidance for landscaping design or choose to take the DIY route, understanding the basic principles of Florida landscaping will help you achieve an easy to maintain, high-quality landscape.
Principle 1: Pair the Plant to the Location
By choosing plants that are drought tolerant and sun-loving, you can incorporate the right plants into your Southwest Florida landscape. Fortunately, Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape makes it easy to choose the right plantings because we focus on growing and selling Florida-friendly plants, shrubs, and trees.
Principle 2: Incorporate Water Effectively
An effective watering plan for landscaping should include a combination of drought tolerant plants and an environmentally friendly irrigation system.
Principle 3: Take a Balanced Approach to Fertilizer Application
Too little fertilizer will prevent your landscape from being as vibrant and bountiful as it could be, and too much fertilizer can kill greenery and cause pollution. Neither result is ideal. Be sure to use slow-release fertilizers that are appropriate for the plantings in question and follow all directions for the best possible landscaping result.
Principle 4: Protect Plants and Enhance Appearance with Quality Mulch
Mulch is essential to a Florida-friendly landscape. It conserves water and protects from extreme temperatures within planting beds. You can choose to collect organic waste material from your yard to use as mulch, or we’re happy to provide top quality mulch of all kinds right here at Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape. We also provide mulching installation services for those who lack the time or the desire to perform the work themselves.
Principle 5: Extend the Ecosystem
Welcome birds, butterflies, and other organisms into your landscape by choosing plants that attract them. We’re happy to help identify options that will work within your yard, fulfill aesthetic expectations, and welcome visitors from the ecosystem into your landscape.
Principle 6: Use Appropriate Pest Management
Pesticide use should be minimal. The best way to prevent pest problems is to choose healthy and hardy plantings and to closely monitor for insect activity to be able to spot treat when the problem first arises. In so doing, you’ll be able to avoid the need for blanket application of pesticide products.
Principle 7: Prioritize Recycling and Protection of the Environment
In your landscape, put recycling and environmental concerns first. Plan for responsible waste management as well as fertilizer and pesticide application. Our region is blessed with ample water access, and property owners must follow all laws relative to protecting Florida waterfronts.
A master design plan for your landscape will tie all of these principles together in a way that achieves your goals regarding appearance, maintenance demands, and functionality. To make sure that each element comes together appropriately, count on professionals to handle the project.
Protect your property values and your Florida lifestyle with a landscape that enjoys a high-quality display and functional appeal.
