Sustainable Landscapes

That Beautify and Protect


Island Designs is taking the lead in large scale sustainable landscaping.

We work to provide balanced multi-functional design concepts that enhance visual enjoyment while delivering on a need for practical uses and environmental sensitivities that reflect the aspirations of your property.

From assessing vulnerabilities for extreme weather conditions and incorporating roadways, walkways, pavement, and beach access in a celebration of island landscapes, our capable staff will see your project through. This includes assistance in planning for the long term, permitting, and installation, while always focusing on the project’s long-term sustainable enjoyment.

We specialize in commercial and municipal projects of all scales whether resorts, flood plain properties, public properties, VIEDA initiatives, as well as other projects for builders, architects and engineers. All with an expertise in erosion, waste reduction and water saving technologies. We’ve been called on many times to find solutions to sensitive environmental issues with permitting and licensing requiring cultural sensibilities and local knowledge.

With plans to demo an existing dilapidated warehouse, the managers of the property had a need for additional parking blended with beautification and functionality.


“Beyond the beauty of the 3D digital designs presented to address our extreme level of property damage was a vital and impressive engineering expertise. Island Designs presented a way of rerouting and naturally filtering the freshwater runoff from the property with drainage solutions with an integrated system of permeable pavements, bioretention water quality facilities and bioswales managed water flow to avoid eroding our property while removing pollutants.
