Tampa  Landscape Designer Florida Gardens Outdoor Oasis

Whether it's Elizabethan England, France's Versailles, Italian Villas, or a Spanish courtyard, Tampa Landscape Designs is influenced by thousands of years of garden design history.  All classic formal gardens exhibit a strong desire to create order out of chaos.  You get a sense of the human will dominating nature by creating a pleasing pattern, and if that is a style that appeals to you, we can create it authentically for your home.


Tampa Landscape Design uses ponds, hedges, pergolas, arbors, legacy plants and fountains as common elements of a classic or formal garden.

Classical and formal gardens began in Caesar's Rome, and spread throughout Europe.  From Caesar's formal box hedge garden, to England's Elizabethan gardens, through France's Versailles and back to Rome's Vatican, landscape design principles remain the same.  Tight control of plant forms, flowering plants, and an orderly presentation.  A recurring design theme includes roses and specimen plants inside box hedges surrounding a central water feature or other garden art.

More about Tampa Landscape Design

Formal garden design began here on Palatine Hill in Rome, under the Caesars.

The Romans brought it here to England where it was heartily embraced, like in this Elizabethan garden courtyard.

Even Paris' public gardens emulate the grandness & beauty of classic landscape design.
