If you’re in Delray Beach and searching for a landscape designer and architect, we’ve published a brief how-to guide that will help you find your bearings. If you read it through carefully you’ll understand the landscape (or hardscape) design process and you’ll be able to avoid unscrupulous contractors…which is always a good thing!

After you read through this short blog post we’d like you to take a look around our website, read our customer reviews, browse through our portfolio, read about how we work (our process), and just get to know us a bit. If you like what you see, drop us a line or give us a call and let’s get together for your free on-site consultation. If you have something specific in mind, perfect. Let’s talk about it. If you don’t have a clue yet about what you want, don’t sweat it.  We’ve been in this business a long time so we are confident that we can design a personal backyard paradise you will love.

What We Do

Treasurescapes is a landscape design and installation company.  That means that we both design and install (construct is another way to put it) landscapes and hardscapes (Hardscapes are things like patios, paths, walls, etc. They’re the features of the landscaping that aren’t alive). We are licensed, insured, and have decades of experience doing both landscape design and landscape installation.

Japanese Landscape Design

Imagine crossing over a small footbridge and leaving the busy, urban environment behind as you step into another world. Relax under a beautiful Japanese wooden pergola as you watch the koi swim in their pond and listen to the sound of water falling. The fragrance of exotic plants, fruit trees, and perennial flowers completes the experience.

Tropical Landscape Design

There’s probably nothing more relaxing than enjoying a swim in a natural pool with real rock waterfalls. Close your eyes and listen to the sound of the wind gently blowing through the palm trees. You don’t need to be anywhere right now so grab a good book and enjoy the gentle motion of the hammock swinging under the protective cover of your own private tiki hut.

Modern Landscape Design

Landscape designs with a modern aesthetic are more popular than ever. They typically include crisp, clean lines, modern colors and contemporary style outdoor furniture.  Lighting is used in unique ways to enhance the minimalist beauty of fountains and square hedges. One particular feature we see a lot today in modern landscape design is the fire pit. Imagine relaxing after a hard day’s work while enjoying the sounds and warmth of a crackling fire.

Butterfly Gardens

Many of us remember the butterflies we used to see and chase when we were children. What happened to them? Sadly, many natural butterfly habitats have been lost because of human encroachment. However, we can easily invite them to return by building a welcoming environment chock full of their favorite flowers and plants.

The only real limit when it comes to designing your perfect paradise is the imagination.
