Villas and Xeriscapes

villa landscape designXeriscape is a complicated sounding word for a very wise and simple concept. In a nutshell, xeriscaping is water-efficient landscaping that's appropriate to the natural environment. The word xeriscape is derived from the Greek word xeros, which means dry. In other words it's landscaping for people without a yard like those that live in Villas.

The goal of xeriscaping is to create a visually attractive landscape that uses plants selected for their water efficiency. Xeriscapes can save a tremendous amount of water. An established, properly maintained xeriscape needs about one-third the water of a traditional turf-based landscape. Some xeric plants require almost no supplemental watering once they are established. An established xeriscape also requires less maintenance than a traditional landscape.

Contrary to popular misconception, xeriscape does not mean rocks. Florida has a wonderful variety of water-wise plants. Some of these plants are perfect for adding year-round greenery and texture. Other native plants are great for adding a splash of seasonal color.

Transform your yard into a beautiful xeriscape and call Mansfield Landscaping, who specialists in native and xeric gardens.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

We went out and checked out their nursery recently. We found that not only did they have the best prices of any of the nurseries in the area, but also that their plants were in the best shape of any of the other nurseries. When we begin our spring landscaping in a couple of weeks (we like to do most of our landscaping ourselves), we will be buying all of our plants/trees from Mansfield.

We have just completed a large landscaping job with Steve Mansfield and are totally pleased and impressed with the quality of the work, the overall appearance and the end product. The job was completed within a week of the estimate and far below other estimates. With those estimates the jobs could not have been started for over a month, at a much higher cost. We went to the nursery with our outside pictures and chose the specific trees we wanted in our yard. This was a long process, but well worth the effort. Steve likes to talk, but he estimated the job that we wanted with the exact trees we wanted to our total satisfaction.

Your presentation was professional and thorough in offering us a multitude of options. You suggested numerous planting choices to meet our budget while giving us the types of plants that would give us the look we wanted. Your crew completed the job ahead of schedule with our full satisfaction, and your follow-up service is exemplary.

We want to thank you for a job well done and will continue to recommend your services to other.

We were very satisfied with the professionalism of Mansfield Landscaping. It was a delightful surprise and experience after having pursued this project with four other landscaping companies that did not measure up to Mansfield. They were attentive from first contact. We received a phone call back in under two hours after our first inquiry. All calls were handled in like manner, We had a problem with our irrigation and they promptly attended and fixed the situation. Price was held as quoted no ad-ons or increase for anything.

We received at least three follow up calls to be certain everything was to our satisfaction. It was a breath of fresh air. The house looks new again. We have drive by gawkers.

Job completed Nov 2013. Outstanding quality plant materials,selection, and excellent workers! Steve and Ron were very helpful in the initially designed, listened to our wants, and came over to our new home to discuss the design. We picked and tagged our palm trees and other plants we liked by walking through his vast nursery. When the work began, he brought over may more plants for us to choose from. Amazing! His work team (we had 5 workers) worked well together, cooperative in moving plants round so we found the perfect mix and placement. Steve came in under budget and on time even though, he had two additional deliveries of pebbles for our beds because he wanted to do the job right! Highly recommended!

Recently we decided to change our “blah” landscaping to something more “Outstanding” and maintenance free. After contacting several companies we met with, and, chose “Mansfield Landscaping”. They were able to provide not only exceptional advice but expert workmanship and changed our “humdrum” property into a “vibrant and exciting garden spot. Not only are we personally pleased with the services provided by “Mansfield Landscaping”, but we also wholeheartedly endorse and recommend their services to anyone in need of landscaping.
