Our Cape Coral Home
Landscaping Project

Completed:  October, 2001

From the time this effort was completed until we left Cape Coral in early 2004, some of the landscaping had to be changed.  For instance; the star jasmine in the shade did not survive, the dracena's did not do well, and the oleanders were attacked by caterpillars ~ these and other plants were replaced with hardier plants which subsequently did fine!

We hope you enjoy the pictures!

To start, about 20 tons of river rock on plastic was removed, in its place is 12.2 cu. yards of shredded cypress.

A 40' palm was ruined during Tropical Storm Gabrielle, we replaced it with a baby royal palm.  This tree will be huge in about 50 years!  :)
