Our Approach

A Process That Thrives

We are dedicated to serving our clients and local communities through landscape architectural services. Our landscape architects and designers marry form and function.  The first objective of landscape architecture is to develop a sense of place within the project site—it should draw people into the space. Next, we incorporate codes, regulations, and design best practices—in collaboration with design team members—to meet municipal standards.

Even after the design phase, our landscape architects and designers provide support during construction. From the first conceptual drawing to construction observation, our processes seek to achieve the client’s functional needs, entice users to the site, and leave a thriving landscape that adds value to the surrounding community.

What We Do

Creating Spaces Where You Want to Be Today and Tomorrow

When a client approaches us with a project, landscaping is not an afterthought for us. We imagine how users will interact with the site. Considering soil, pedestrian and vehicle circulation, existing and proposed vegetation, irrigation needs, and landscape lighting, we understand that landscapes are living designs that will continuously evolve. Beautiful spaces create common ground where people peacefully interact with each other, whether their interactions are commercial, recreational, or neighborly. We seek to merge the space’s resources—its natural beauty—with the client’s vision to provide a sense of place. Our team believes a well-designed landscape is the foundation upon which a successful project—and a successful community—is built.


Each project site has unique characteristics that generate opportunities and constraints. Some characteristics are natural, while others are man-made or emerge after reviewing the municipal code. Often, form and function come into conflict. To smooth this tension, we strive to understand every site through meticulous research and discussions with the client, municipal staff, and even community stakeholders.

Our landscape architects and designers possess a combination of skills, ranging from freehand sketching or building digital 3D models to assessing soil quality or selecting the right tree for the right place. We employ these skills to help all the stakeholders understand how our designs address the site’s unique characteristics. Our goal is to design a site that efficiently achieves the client’s needs and fulfills the community’s standards.

Serving Your Project

Our landscape architects and designers create designs for retail centers, industrial sites, and residential neighborhoods. We can provide code-minimum designs, and we can provide enhanced designs that incorporate public artwork, support migratory birds, add custom play structures in parks, and so much more!

Our approach starts by assessing a site’s existing vegetation and protecting the trees and natural resources to provide the greatest value to our clients. We provide concepts and designs that start from the soil and grow to the height of the tallest trees. Our personalized strategy provides details for custom features and allows us to coordinate with manufacturers to provide off-the-shelf products that feel unique. Throughout the process, we can render our creations in 2D plans and elevations or 3D flythroughs and perspectives to help our clients experience the design before we break ground.

How We Are Different

Our landscape architects and designers provide several specialized services to clients to create a resilient, beautiful design that meets your goals. Whether it’s making use of the land’s natural assets, sketching out ideas and plans, or handling the logistics of functionality, we are passionate about enhancing the space to its full potential through landscape design.

What Our Clients Say About Us

I have been pleased to work with JBPro on many successful jobs, from minor subdivisions, gated residential communities, to student rental projects encompassing full city blocks. I have been extremely impressed with their team approach to value engineer our projects. I can’t say enough how invaluable our relationship with JBPro has become–they seem to find ways to help us achieve the impossible.

We have worked with JBPro for many years. They have been an important part of many of our projects’ success and the quality of their work has always been excellent. We have relied on their strong engineering expertise and continue to be extremely pleased with their knowledge, teamwork with our staff, and ability to integrate their drawing packages with our team. We recommend, without reservation, JBPro to any client seeking great results and fantastic teamwork.

Since we started working with JBPro, they have been an instrumental part of our team. Through all aspects of the project, they are quick to respond, knowledgeable, and willing to work through any issues as they arise. We value our relationship with JBPro and everything they bring to our projects.

I’ve used many great surveying companies over the years, but no one responds as quickly as JBPro. Their work is excellent, and I always can trust them to make our deadlines.

For over 30 years, we have been privileged to experience JBPro’s dedication and professionalism. They are the hardest working engineering company in North Central Florida with an uncompromising commitment to getting it right. Their team is always up for the challenge of creating beautiful and successfully built environments in our area.

I’ve worked with JBPro for almost 15 years, and they have designed numerous successful projects for our company. They creatively solve big-picture problems and detail-oriented issues, using their deep understanding of local codes and their close connections with the planners who enforce them. This gives our team the ability to negotiate solutions that make our projects look great while satisfying regulations in a cost-effective way.

We have provided transportation support services to JBPro for many years and supported their efforts on numerous development projects throughout Florida.  Their company maintains the highest professional standards of quality work and timely delivery of reports or final products to their clients. We know the best interests of the client will always be the focus of their work product. When asked for engineering company referrals in North Florida, we always recommend JBPro.

Working with JBPro and their staff is always a pleasure. They handle every project with a sense of professionalism and a collaborative spirit. I’ve worked with their team for over 8 years on countless projects and can say without reservation that they are reliable and make every client feel like a priority.

JBPro was integral in developing the 4-restaurant anchored Colonnade at Gateway Crossing. They surveyed, master planned and permitted the entire 28-acre mixed-use development. Their relationship with local, state, and federal agencies and their understanding of the site development approval process was invaluable. JBPro took a holistic and cost-effective approach and proved extremely responsive when providing us ongoing site layouts as we developed, leased, and sold our development parcels. I highly recommend the JBPro team and would not hesitate to use them again.

Over the last 30 years, we have developed hundreds of projects in over 40 states. We have literally hired and/or supervised multiples of hundreds of engineering firms in the process of creating and developing these projects. In that connection, and based on our experience, I would like to clearly endorse JBPro as “the best of the best.” In short – Jay and his team are all phenomenal and I cannot recommend JBPro highly enough. They are the best I have seen. Hire them. (I sure will!)”
