Creative Outdoor Design

Umatilla, FL

At Creative Outdoor Design, our mission is to transform your outdoor spaces into captivating landscapes that reflect your style and enhance your quality of life. Led by the experienced and visionary Robert Parker, our company has been crafting beautiful, sustainable landscapes since 1985. With a legacy that began with a borrowed lawn mower and a deep-seated passion for landscaping instilled by his grandfather, Robert has built a business renowned for its dedication to design excellence and customer satisfaction.

Our Design Philosophy and Process

Understanding and executing our clients’ vision is paramount at Creative Outdoor Design. Our process starts with a personal introduction and a comprehensive consultation, which is typically free, to discuss your landscaping desires. Whether you’re looking to revitalize your property or create a new oasis, we initiate each project by exploring your ideas and offering tailored suggestions that align with your aesthetic and functional needs.

We emphasize a logical approach to landscape design, selecting plants and features that are low maintenance and suitable for Florida’s unique environment. Our designs consider not only the beauty of each plant but also their long-term growth, ensuring that your garden is prepared to thrive as it matures. This thoughtful planning extends to the views from inside your home as well as the external perspective, creating a harmonious indoor-outdoor living experience.

Innovative Technology and Custom Designs

Utilizing state-of-the-art landscape architect software, we bring your outdoor dreams to life with precision and creativity. This technology allows us to present you with detailed 3D visualizations of your proposed landscape, providing a virtual walkthrough of the space before any physical work begins. This step ensures that every element of the design meets your expectations, offering the opportunity for real-time adjustments and fostering informed decision-making.

Our designs are as unique as our clients, ranging from serene water features and lush garden beds to robust hardscaping and elegant outdoor lighting. Each design is crafted not only to impress but to provide a practical, easy-to-maintain extension of your living space.

Had a 4 1/2 foot fountain installed. Was quite the undertaking but, they took it on, and did an amazing job of it. It came together so quickly, and so well. My neighbors can't stop telling me how much they love it. It is within the entrance way to my property. You HAVE to walk passed it to get to my door. Nothing short of spectacular. Robert, and his crew were very knowledgeable, and professional. I've actually cleared an area in my backyard with the plan of having them back for a second installation. Thank you, Robert. You've made my yard the "stand out" property on the block, for sure.
