Because our home has a beautiful view of the golf course, we wanted our backyard to reflect and frame the vista we enjoyed seeing each day. The backyard of our new home had very little grass, a lot of dirt and tremendous potential. So, rather than making a futile attempt at trying to create our own respite, my husband and I went to Angie's List to find the most qualified designer, and landscape artist in the Orlando area. Ed Fosgate listened to our desires and ideas...and asked us to come up with three or four elements that were especially important to us to be included in his landscape elemental plan. The next day he came back and we gave him renderings of a patio, bridge and waterfall. We also wanted a gazebo, but, because of the style of our home, and the view of our home and backyard from the golf course, Ed suggested that a pergola would be more in keeping with the design of our home and future landscaping. After understanding the difference in the two structures, we agreed--since the pergola was so classic and had such a clean design. In a couple of days, Ed was back with his completed landscaping design which was perfect in every way. We recognized Ed's truly creative genius when he included a berm behind the waterfall and at the top of the bridge--which became a useful deck where we can sit, eat and enjoy a fire pit on those rare, but special, cool Florida nights. Ed thoughtfully included flowering plants that keep our garden colorful at all times and special LED accent lighting, giving us the option to utilize our deck at night. Ed is thoughtful and resourceful, as is his business associate Michael. They go above and beyond what is necessary to make your dreams come true. Additionally, the crew of workers are respectful and dependable. We would recommend Ed Fosgate's services and expertise to all, and look forward to hiring him again in the future.
