Landscaping Services on the north coast of the Dominican Republic
Select Caribbean Properties is pleased to offer landscape design and installation as a part of its overall commitment to client services. Whether for new construction, building renovation or simply as an addition to existing gardens, professional garden/grounds design and expert installation of trees, shrubs, flowers, water features and natural stone will enhance any project.
The tropical climate and excellent soil of the Dominican Republic ensure that newly-planted gardens will flourish, reaching maturity in far less time than in Europe or North Ameriica. The ability to mix plants of varying color and size in a location, and knowing what those plants will look like in 6 months or a year, defines the tropical landscape designer. Further, the addition of water features such as ponds or fountains plus the use of local natural materials for paving and cladding, enhances the effect of the overall landscape plan.
There are many viveros (nurseries) along the north coast of this country. Many sell a great variety of plants and a few stock hard-to-find specimens such as Egyptian Date Palms and some of the more exotic hybridized bougainvilleas. The knowledgeable landscape designer will recognize the need for careful selection of plants from reputable dealers and will advise the client of which plants may thrive on the ocean side of a house or which will survive in direct sunlight.
Indeed, Landscape Design and implementation combines art and science, for the designer must be conversant with all aspects of gardens. The designer will know that a Ficus tree, fast-growing and quite beautiful, will spread roots so widely as to damage any nearby structure. He or she will also know how often and for what duration a given plant will flower...or which fruit trees will bear quickly...or which fish might live in a client's tropical fishpond, surrounded by Aleli, year-round impatiens and Gramma China, a succulent ground-cover from the orient.
