We work hard to bring sustainable ideas to life

Sustainscape, Inc. is dedicated to bringing you South Florida’s most innovative sustainable landscape services.  We specialize in custom landscape design and installation, chemical free landscape maintenance and organic lawn care, water efficient irrigation and many more sustainable services.

Sustainable Landscape Design

Our approach to sustainable landscape design focuses around beauty, practicality, diversity, and allowing ecology to guide.  We take a long term approach to our design, allowing the plants to grow into the yard.  Our design is a unique solution for each client, their specific location, and their use of the space. Our goal is for you to enjoy the creative edge.  We pride ourselves in providing to each customer, not just color or clean lines but, specific need based collaborative approach to using the whole space for years to come.

 

Landscape Maintenance

Our maintenance crew is trained to perform all tasks in the garden and landscape.   We are constantly working on creating a balance in the soil and allowing the plants to perform optimally at their specific times of the season.  Proper pruning, organic weed control, south florida native plants, and water management are all aspects used to achieve the balance of a sustainable landscape.

 

LiquidVitae Organic Fertilization

There is a problem with ocean algae and reef ecology.  Chemical fertilizers are part of the problem, we are part of the solution.  Liquid Vitae was created to fundamentally change the view of plant growth and nourishment.  The goal is to bring symmetry and nutrients to plants on land while enhancing the ocean’s balance.  Our research and development is continuous.

Irrigation and Water Conservation

Using irrigation as a supplement for watering plants is many times necessary in our Florida climate.  Sustainable irrigation incorporates water conservation and proper configuration of the sprinkler system to acheive maximum plant health.  We have developed our methodology with the plant through education and experience.  We believe water is a precious resource and spray the right amount of water for each plant and species.

The Nursery at Sustainscape

The newest addition to the Sustainscape family.  Step into our nursery experience.  Feel the beauty in permaculture and pollinating plants.  Find a sense of your outdoor space with our plants and products. (additional information coming soon!)

 

 

 

Drainage

Creating drainage is a vital aspect for many landscapes in South Florida, many times overlooked.  We believe moving water responsibly is more than pushing water away from a structure.  We practice drainage techniques providing protection to your home, building, landscape, and surrrounding environment.

Our Mission

It’s been such a pleasure working with Dennis and his crew. We love our new organic garden and the amazing raised bed vegetables and herbs area.
I have been using lettuces, kale, cilantro, basil, and so much more on a daily basis. I love how easy it is to communicate with Dennis and that he takes great pride in providing his customers with a first rate experience.

Sustainscapes installed our new landscaping after our pool installation and helped solve some drainage issues we were having. Dennis is very knowledgeable and easy to collaborate with. They installed exactly what we were looking for and was able to make it happen within our budget. Dennis was easy to communicate with and always on the job when he said he would be. Thank you!

I had the experience of working for Sustainscape Inc. while in Graduate School. Although Dennis could be hard on me at times, it was his passion for environmentalism and love for native plants that kept me motivated. His vision of reaching the end goal and his professionalism, are two traits I adopted and still use today. Although I chose the environmental engineering and consultant career path, I learned many new life skills that would have never been offered to me. Now that I am a home owner , I have beautiful native landscape that is a fully sustainable garden. I would recommend Dennis to anybody who is trying to reduce their footprint on Florida soil.

Dennis and his team are true professionals. Sustainscapes installed a RainMachine and converted my sprinkler system to solenoid valves. I saved $76/mo on my water bill.

Highly recommend!!!
