Reimagined Southwest Florida landscapes through collaboration, creativity, and architectural experience.


Award-winning landscape architect Ed Westwood of Garden Bleu has elevated the design process of intimate outdoor spaces needing landscape renovation or new homes across Southwest Florida for over 30 years. Utilizing cutting-edge digital renderings, Garden Bleu fosters a collaborative design environment, transforming your vision into a tangible reality for your new home or outdoor landscape renovation.

Move beyond traditional blueprints. Immerse yourself in a visual dialogue through the power of digital renderings. Picture a life unwinding beside a sparkling pool beneath a vibrant canopy of native palms or luxury entertaining with friends beneath a cabana and outdoor kitchen. We can assist you in imagining your changing or new Florida lifestyle, from envisioning nights filled with starlight and warm glowing firepits to dappled sunlit hidden oasis filled with nature’s sounds, colors, and textures.

These aren’t simply aspirations but the foundation for a unique collaborative design experience. Garden Bleu’s digital renderings allow for exploring diverse design elements, materials, and spatial configurations – all before professional and experienced construction commences. This collaborative approach ensures your outdoor space seamlessly integrates with your lifestyle, creating a haven for relaxation and connection with nature—through water, earth, plants, sunlight, and shadow.

Embrace the transformative power of digital design and craft an intimate outdoor escape unlike any other based on area-specific knowledge and experience. Contact Garden Blue today and begin your journey of co-creating your Southwest Florida paradise landscape and outdoor vignettes.

“I believe in creating outdoor spaces with the simplicity that reflects the essence of you, truthfully.”

– Ed Westwood, Landscape Architect


The way ideas are expressed influences the way we understand them. How an outdoor living space looks and utilized influences how we feel about it. From experience, we believe that people want their surroundings to be a truthful expression of who they are and what their ever-changing life stage requires. Your lifestyle change could include a new home, a growing family, becoming an empty nester, entering retirement, or simply selling your home. A lifestyle change can bring about new ways to use your outdoor space, from relaxing to entertaining, whether seasonally or year-round, short-term or long-term.

A lifestyle change brings many questions and decisions; often, there is too little time to see and implement creative opportunities. Whether it be a new home, existing home renovations, or the temporary staging of a unique home for sale, the goal is to reflect the homeowner’s style. It needs to be in a creative, positive, and valuable way.

We design outdoor spaces to meet specific needs, whether it be relaxation, improved functionality, a better entertainment space, or increasing the value of your property. Through outdoor landscape architecture and landscape management plans, we reimagine possibilities to reflect what is essential to each client. We understand it, tell it beautifully, make it engaging, and simply make it easy.

Ed is active in the growing community as a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects, the Naples Botanic Garden, and the Naples Garden Club.

He cultivates local garden demographics and continues to utilize proven design practices inspired by local and international trends in the art and sciences of landscape architecture. Ed's design philosophy is to remain 'hands-on' as a small, experienced team that specializes in working on a client-to-client basis with many of the most high-powered and demanding owners of luxury homes and businesses in Southwest Florida. Our work includes private estates in the luxurious Port Royal communities, Gulfshore Boulevard, Gordon Drive, Old Naples, and many upscale, private, gated communities throughout Naples. We work with the area's best landscape management teams, builders, architects, interior designers, plant nurseries, landscape contractors, growers, and tradespeople.


Our studio location is currently under renovation, and we kindly ask that all visits be by appointment. We look forward to announcing its completion soon.
