Imagine going to work every day in beautiful surroundings with customers, colleagues and clients who are just like family. That’s what Connie Emmerson says she has the privilege to do each day. And, you’re invited to come visit her outdoor oasis.
Connie is president of Royal Landscape Nursery, a 6-acre, outdoor garden facility owned and operated by the Emmerson family. It is Central Florida’s largest outdoor plant and patio landscape showcase and located at 2204 Hempel Ave. in Gotha. Royal Landscape sells both wholesale and retail-priced foliage at 20 to 30 percent less than the nurseries at big chain stores. The company also delivers plants, trees, sod, mulch and pavers directly to customers in town or across the country.
Connie runs the business office while her husband, Steve, is “the creative one.” Steve Emmerson handles commercial products and installations for large properties, including new housing developments and apartment homeowner associations. Daughter Mia graduated from college in North Carolina and returned home two years ago to join the enterprise. According to Connie, Mia “upped the business” and supervises commercial maintenance. It is uncertain whether college student and younger daughter Sophie will follow her sister, but ever since she was able to reach the counter, Sophie has helped out in the office. The entire family is very hands-on....

Floridians are fortunate to live in a tem- perate climate where plants and trees thrive year-round. Homeowners can enjoy beauti- ful outdoor surroundings that also translate into increased property values.
Early spring is the best time to consider a new landscape, as the threat of frost is a memory, and the blazing heat of the sun is still a few months away.
Some people may choose blooming plants to add splashes of color, or shrubbery and trees to provide shade and privacy. Others look to extend their outdoor living spaces by enhancing pool areas with pavers and water features. Whatever the scope of the project, Royal Landscape & Maintenance Inc. can coordinate services from design to installation.
Customers are invited to stroll the 19-acre nursery, located in Gotha, and make their selections.
“We tag each plant so they know exactly what is going in their yard,” said Steve Emmerson, who has co-owned and -operated Royal Landscape & Maintenance with his wife, Connie, for 15 years.
Complementing Steve’s more than 28 years of landscape experience is a full staff of professionals who can educate custom- ers about a variety of plants from proper placement to watering requirements.
Customers facing issues with existing landscape can turn to Royal Landscape professionals for advice. Homeowners can either bring in a clipping of a troubled plant or opt to have Royal Landscape personnel come to their homes.
