We love color, but also new design trends, pools, and front yard makeovers. Here are some examples:
1. Four New Trends for Boca Raton Landscape Design
Our landscape designers are constantly searching the world for new and fresh design concepts. Here are some of our favorites.
A. Clean Lines
Clean, simple lines are one of the most popular trends in the Boca Raton landscape. Our landscape designers created this tropical landscape (below) with a Mexican pebble border that unifies the clean lines. The focal point is comprised of the over scaled silver plants in the foreground.
B. Tropical, Spiky Plants
Another key trend for Boca Raton landscape designers is the use of tropical, spiky plants instead of green, layered hedges. Hedges can be used in northern landscapes, and most Boca Raton homeowners want landscape designers who can create a lovely, tropical look.
Our professional landscape designers created this tropical plan (below) to reflect Boca Raton’s unique climate and style. There are no green hedges in this landscape plan! It would certainly not be mistaken for a New York landscape!

C. Lasting Color
Color is our primary focus. Historically, Boca Raton landscape designers used annuals – little flowers that last one season – for years as the primary source of landscape color. Pamela Crawford, on the other hand, spent 20 years testing landscape plants to find the ones that gave the most color for the longest period of time. She has written several books on the topic. Her professional landscape designers are experts in these plants, and create landscape design plans with plants that burst with color and last for 10 to 20 years.
D. Container Landscaping using Pottery
Pamela Crawford wrote 5 books on container gardens. She worked with the top 10 pottery importers in the US to choose the pots for her books. Her knowledge is encyclopedic!
Availability of gorgeous Asian pottery has exploded in the last decade, and our professional landscape designers use them in almost every landscape plan. These blue pots (shown, below) say ‘welcome’ to visitors and the homeowner, adding a strong focal point to a small space.
Along with new trends, we absolutely love pool landscapes!

Pools have changed through time from being a hole in the ground containing water to being the central focus of outdoor living in the Boca Raton landscape. Most Boca Raton homes feature large windows overlooking the pool area, so they also become a major feature of the landscape designs as viewed from inside the house.
The owner of this Boca Raton courtyard home hated the stark landscape around the pool, as shown in the ‘Before’ photo. He wanted a landscape renovation of this courtyard to create the feel of ‘a pool in a garden.’ Our landscape designers chose travertine to cover spaces needed for furniture and foot traffic. The rest of the pool deck became tropical gardens. The pool was refinished to give it sparkle.
Pool Landscaping Boca Raton: Think of Your Pool Area as a Resort!
This pool owner wanted to enlarge the pool to accommodate a sun shelf and spa. He also wanted the blue planters on the far side removed for a clean-lined look. Our Boca Raton landscape designers chose a simple, neutral mosaic tile, ivory travertine, and a heavenly blue color for the pool interior. Our landscape designers followed the client’s request for a clean, tropical landscape across the pool.

Another view of the pool shows overgrown vines in the ‘Before’ photo. Our landscape designers had the vines removed and clean-lined pottery installed instead. The color of the pottery coordinates with the pool tile.

Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to completely change a pool space. Just some simple changes to the landscape around the pool did the trick at this Boca Raton pool. The ‘Before’ picture shows a sad mess of overgrown plants. Our professional landscape designers added dramatic pottery, a statue, and some complimentary plants for a simple landscape renovation with major impact.
