Captiva Island is home to some of the largest and most exclusive estates in Southwest Florida. The owner of this property had built a brand-new house and asked us to design a landscape that emulated a resort he frequented in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We installed large Clustering Fishtail Palms (Caryota mitis) for privacy, Royal Palms (Roystonea regia) to line his infinity pool, and Coconuts (Cocos nucifera) to compliment his 3-story home. Some additional features included an orchard with winding golf cart path, a pergola, and a 21st-century irrigation system with no wires running throughout the yard. He now charges a 5-figure fee per weekend for the world’s elite to rent the property- giving him an excellent return on investment.
