The Art and Science of a Beautiful Landscape

A gorgeous landscape is about more than each individual plant, shrub or tree; each element must work with all of the others to create a beautiful, pleasing effect that complements its surroundings. Plugs+ creates unique landscapes that will reflect your individuality and enhance your surroundings without overpowering them.

Show Your Individuality

You deserve more than a cookie-cutter approach to plantings and design. Each landscape we design is tailored to you, your house, and your neighborhood. Plugs+ will work with you to determine the perfect balance between cost, maintenance, and the overall effect you wish to achieve.

Choosing the Right Plants

residential landscaping services in Sarasota, Florida

In determining which plants to place in your yard, we consider the unique sun, water and care requirements for each plant. We also appreciate and honor the homeowner’s wishes when it comes to yard maintenance. While some homeowners may want a more exotic planting that requires more specialized care, other homeowners may wish to minimize their outdoor care commitment. Beautiful landscapes are possible in both high- and low-maintenance plantings. Our founder, J.R. Ekins, will ensure that we provide only those plants that will thrive in a given location with the amount of maintenance that the homeowner wishes to provide. We also understand that some existing plantings have special meaning or are a particular favorite. During the design process, if we find that an existing plant is not optimally located, we can remove and relocate the plant to a better location that will provide it with the environment it needs to continue to beautify your yard for years to come.

Water to Each Plant

Even if you have the right plant in the right place, it won’t flourish unless it gets the water it requires to perform well. We will modify your existing irrigation system to accommodate your new plants so that they have the moisture they need to thrive.
