Providing Sustainable Landscape Design in Northeast Florida
A part of the core mission of Rockaway is to provide sustainable landscape design and installation in Northeast Florida. ”When you expect to do work with Rockaway, you can set your standards high,” Zach Fuchs, Rockaway landscape designer, said. ”We not only want to do the best we can for you as the client, but we want to do the best we can from a sustainability standpoint as well.” From client communications, our landscape architects and design team develop and present you with a sustainable landscape design plan that offers options for irrigation, drainage, landscape maintenance, and much more!
”When we design a landscape, we are thinking of long term not just in a year, two years, or three years from now, we’re thinking 5, 10, 15 years down the road,” Fuch said. What is this landscape going to look like? It might look great now, but without the proper maintenance and care things can get out of hand really quickly. From a maintenance standpoint, some plants work better than others.” It is important to work with a design team with a strong understanding of the suitability of plants for your landscape design. ”Some site conditions to keep in mind when selecting landscape plants include: light availability, intensity and duration (full sun to deep shade) water availability, both quantity and quality. exposure to wind and temperature extremes,” according to the University of Massachusetts Amherst. ”Choosing the “”right plant for the right place”” is an important consideration for all types of landscaping. Ignoring this guideline may lead to increased maintenance, a failure of plants to thrive, and sometimes the death of installed plant material.”
At Rockaway, we work with clients with different tastes in plant material, providing plans that range from xeriscaped to lush tropical designs. ‘Do they want a landscape that’s a little bit higher maintenance and has more detail to it, or do they want something that’s a little bit more simple, more wavy naturalized? Fuch asked. ”We can do either of those depending on what you as the individual want.” The expertise and experience of our landscape architect and design team are here to serve you.
”Landscape designers work on a canvas that is distinctly different from other art forms,” according to the University of Florida. ”The “”art”” is always changing as the plants grow, environmental conditions change, and people use the space. For this reason, landscape designers use a design process that systematically considers all aspects of the land, the environment, the growing plants, and the needs of the user to ensure a visually pleasing, functional, and ecologically healthy design.”
At Rockaway, we are committed to responsive and convenient expertise tailored to your needs. ”As a salesperson at Rockaway, we want to do what we can to make to make you happy, whether it be finding the materials that we may need to ship out from somewhere like California or making that extra call just to make sure that you understand what we are doing and just to make sure that you feel comfortable before we move on to the next steps,” Fuchs said. ”We want you to feel comfortable. This is a huge investment not only for you as a person, but for the community, and we want to make sure that we do everything that we can to hit that bar. And we always want to hit that bar here.”
