Introduction: Legacy Landscaping Services is a Design-Build Contractor. We have been in business since 1994. We started as an irrigation company and over the years added services including landscape design and installation, landscape lighting, paver installation, sod installation and mulch and rock installation. Our knowledge of plants, irrigation, pests, mulch, etc. has come from our years in the business as well as the educational classes and seminars we attend annually. Attention to detail is our way of exceeding a client's expectations. We listen to clients and develop a plan that meets their budgetary expectations. We do excellent work at a fair price! We charge time and material on every job. Legacy means we are working for something greater than ourselves. We are a family business. We realize leaving a lasting legacy means we need to leave our mark on people and in our community, one client at a time. We are stewards of this paradise and that requires us to leave it in better shape than we found it. We love taking an average landscape/irrigation design and improving it so the results are breathtaking and spectacular! Our desire is to leave our community in better shape than when we found it. Being faithful stewards of our land and water is something we take seriously. We continually attend classes and earn certifications to remain at the forefront of our industry's latest advancements which enables us to be the most efficient stewards of our precious natural resources while providing our clients with the best possible products and services.

Outdoor Landscaping and Design

Not being from FL, I was not familiar with any of the plants/trees, etc. Given Gary's horticultural background and extreme patience, he educated us on FL's soil and offered several planting alternatives which would thrive on our property. Gary drew plans for approval from the HOA and helped us see exactly where all materials were going to be planted. The Team was very thorough and professional in their prep work, plant selections and installation, including irrigation. We are very pleased we chose Legacy Landscaping.

Outdoor Landscaping and Design

Extremely pleased with the professional services provided by Legacy Landscape. Gary was very thorough and accommodating to our coordination of scheduling services with other contractors. His great team lead by Juan did an amazing job sprucing up our front yard and totally redoing our back yard. Trees were cut down, bushes were pulled out, weeds were sprayed and grass was pulled up to prepare for our newly planted sod and Royal Palms. Juan's team was very diligent and cleaned up after everything. You would never even have known they were here. After planting 2 beautiful Royal Palms I decided I wanted 2 more and Gary had them installed the next day! We love our backyard Oasis and highly recommend Legacy Landscaping to anyone in Cape Coral. Thanks again, Gary, Juan, JP and the crew!!!

Sprinkler and Irrigation System Repair and Maintenance

JP was great. He showed up a day early, and without my # so he could let me know, but I don't thin that was his fault. He inspected every piece of our irrigation system, even double checked. He crawled around the landscaping search, finding, repairing everything. I am very pleased and will recommend his service.

Sprinkler and Irrigation System Installation

One of the best experiences I have had. The people are wonderful and they do a great job. They present options to consider and don't try to sell you something you really do not need or want. They are quite professional. They listen and make valid suggestions. I would recommend them to any person looking for quality. THANK YOU!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Our bids are itemized so easily understood by clients. And we are flexible to design projects to budgets as well. We customize every job we propose.Your goals are our goals and we work to design a landscape plan that fits your budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We like to meet with the client to determine their needs and budget restrictions. We then design a plan that meets their expectations. Upon signing the contract we take great attention to detail when implementing the plan to make sure everything is perfect. Upon completion, before we collect the check, we walk the landscaping, irrigation or sod job with the client to make sure they are totally happy.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was the Water Management Director for the Southeast Region at TruGreen LandCare in 2013. I am getting my certification from the Florida Landscape and Growers Association. My wife and partner is attaining her Landscape Architect License. We participate in the local Florida Irrigation society and the FNGLA. We participate in the Florida Irrigation Society.
