Learn how an Orlando landscape compliments a lake front home:
A client of BLG Environmental Services in Orlando Florida recently was in need of landscape design for their lake front estate. The family desired a cohesive look that provided balance and complimented the large stately oaks on the property. This Orlando landscape included new focal points for the front yard, privacy bamboo throughout, pool landscaping and backyard design elements, and elegant outdoor lighting to compliment the landscape & architectural features of the home.
The Orlando landscape project began in the front yard with new trees and focal points including tabebuia trees, specimen camellias, and orange birds of paradise. Lush tropicals and traditional elements including ginger, xanadu, azaleas, and ground cover were used to create a stately look with color accents that were fun and created a smile when viewing the lake. Dwarf clumping bamboo was then installed along the perimeter of the property to give the feeling of privacy and block undesirable views.
Team BLG then focused on the backyard design and pool landscaping. The backyard design included large fox-tail palms to frame the roof lines of the cabana. Synthetic turf framed lushly landscaped beds around the pool. Vines and tropicals surrounded the pergola to create a Ritz Carlton feeling throughout the pool area. A stepping stone walkway invited guests from the pool to a secret garden with fragrant plantings and flowers that dazzled the eye.
The Orlando landscape design project finished with an elegant LED outdoor lighting system. Lighting installed inside the driveway was used to guide guests onto the property. Accent lights softened the brick facade of the home and highlighted the large oaks throughout the property. Soft lights complimented the cabana and completed the pool landscape and backyard design.
With a new Orlando landscape completed, the family will have a resort style experience day and night!
