As a Southwest Florida’s real estate agent, I make sure to be a constant resource for my clients. And that means whether they need advice on the closest communities to the water or just decorating ideas for their new home, I’m there for them. I truly love to share everything local.
Well, because of our unique climate, I often get questions from my clients about landscaping. After all, if you’re buying your first home here, you need ideas that make sense for our area. So, I’ve put together this quick list of spots around Fort Myers where you can get some interesting landscaping ideas.
Old Town Sanibel for Quaint SWFL Ideas
Located at the southern end of Sanibel Island, Old Town is a small area that was once the central hub of the island. I also love their landscaping! Now, it’s true that Sanibel in general is a wonderful place for landscaping ideas. But Old Town Sanibel has a few gems that always get me thinking, whether it’s a lush pitch apple hedge or a trim of limestone rocks around a flowerbed.
Captiva Drive for Secluded Landscaping
Just down the road from Sanibel is Captiva Island, one of Fort Myers hidden secrets and a spot with beautiful homes. The landscaping is also full of ideas that will get you imagining the possibilities. Because of how the community is developed, you can just take a long drive down this road. It’s very enjoyable, and you’ll see lots of homes hidden behind thick walls of landscaping.
McGregor Blvd for Historic Southwest Florida
For those of you thinking about buying SWFL property, I recommend a quick drive on McGregor Blvd. First, there’s several wonderful homes in the area that may interest you. You’re also right down the road from Downtown Fort Myers. At the same time, McGregor Blvd can give you a sense of just what kind of impression you can make with simple palm trees. On the other hand, the Edison and Ford Winter Estate is also full of absolutely unique landscaping ideas (and historic homes that are worth a look).
Hickory Blvd out Past Lover’s Key
Not far from Lover’s Key is Hickory Blvd, a road that runs part of the length of our gorgeous waters. This spot is a bit different when it comes to landscaping ideas. This is because, being so close to the water, mostly salt tolerate plants will be in favor. You’ll see well-trimmed hedges of sea grapes, towering coconut palms, and more. There are also a number of attractive homes in this area as well, so it’s also worth putting on your list if you’re interested in buying.
