When you’re looking for a South Florida landscaping company, you want only the best. Zito Landscape Design has been Ft. Lauderdale and Miami-Dade’s leading landscape design/build company for over 40 years.
We, at Zito Landscape Design, are experts in customer service. Many customers share their experiences online including Dan Donoghue’s testimony on Houzz:
“John Zito and his son, Chris, are not only highly competent in landscape design, but they are good people. We acquired a home in Hollywood, FL and interviewed no less than a dozen landscape firms. As soon as I hung up the phone after speaking with John, I told my wife, ‘That’s who we need to hire,’” Donoghue shares on Houzz.
At Zito Landscape Design, we treat each property with respect as well as we value you, the homeowners. As our client, you take center stage when we design and build your outdoor oasis.
Our customers stay with us for decades due to the sustainable gardens we create and install as well as the quality hardscapes we build in South Florida backyards. Many of our clients stay with us for 20 years or more.
Our landscape design process starts with a phone call discussing your outdoor needs and dreams over the phone. Then, we meet with you in person to discuss our landscape process and the scope of your landscape design.
We also help you solidify your ideas by looking at completed projects and seeing what design elements you want to include in your outdoor master plan.
At Zito Landscape Design, we create sustainable gardens. We only select the finest palms, perennials, trees, and shrubs that are native to Florida.
Our gardens last decades rather than years. Plus, each plant we choose for you plays an important role in the overall design of your new gardens.
Dan Donoghue says, “When John (Zito) visited the property with Chris (Zito, the owner’s son), we were even more pleased to see their creative talents and enthusiasm for their work.”
Both John and Chris are hands-on designers and consultants. We’ll visit your property during the installation and building phases of your landscape design.
John and Chris may tweak your master plan to enhance your outdoor experience. We want you to have the best landscape design that’s sustainable, beautiful and an expression of you.
The initial design that we create can take 5-12 days depending on the project’s intricacy. Our installed projects range from a few days to complete to a few months depending on the complexity of your landscape design.
We use only native FL plants, and they come with a full-limited warranty on all plant materials. We only install Fancy and #1 plant materials from nurseries in Northern Florida, so you know you’re getting only the best products.
Our native plants are also grown to survive in the South Florida climate. Since we plant sustainable gardens, our natives improve throughout the years when they’re correctly maintained with fertilizer, insect controls, and irrigation.
We have some customers who still have their original Zito garden for 25 years or more. Most of our clientele invest in our maintenance program where we employ plant health care for their sustainable gardens for several years.

We also install hardscapes that fit your entertaining or privacy needs. We create outdoor rooms that include gazebos, pergolas, patios, outdoor kitchens, ponds, stone walkways, pools and waterfalls, just to name a few of our hardscaping elements.
Here are some more testimonials from our clients:
Walt states, “Zito did a phenomenal job creating and installing a stunning courtyard. Modern, fresh approach with great plant selection.”
Another customer states, “John transformed our yard into a beautiful paradise! When we bought our vacation house in Florida, we did a full renovation. Our house is set on a corner lot. All (were) exposed to the streets and neighbors with no privacy for us. When working with John, we explained (that) we really wanted complete privacy, luxury and did not want to see any streets, alleyways, and our obnoxious neighbors. Mission accomplished. Now, our landscaping is extremely lush, dimensional and private. It’s a dream come true.”
And Dan Donoghue describes his renovated landscape as “Shangri La.”
“Throughout the process, we were consulted on every step including the precise selection of plant varieties and hardscape materials, and care was taken [on] their part to make sure we stayed within our budget.”
“Words cannot possibly describe the finished project,” Mr. Donoghue says. “The closest I come is simply, ‘Shangri La.’ Do not take my word for it, as every friend and neighbor (who) visited our home has marveled at its qualities of tropical paradise. John and Chris created something that went so much farther than we could have imagined. They changed our home into a retreat, and we had so much fun working with them along the journey.”

Depending on your landscape needs, you might want to vary the height of your hedge or privacy screen to make it more visually interesting. That means choosing trees and shrubs of different heights. When you’re looking into shrubs and trees, you’ll also need to consider how much sun and shade they get, as different plants have different needs.
