About Us |

You are our top priority


My name is Chad Van Tilburg and I am the President and C.E.O. of SilverCrested Management, LLC.  My company employs more than 30 full time staff members who provide management services to 76 condominium complexes and homeowners associations in the Fort Myers area. 

Photoscape Landscape and Design has provided both landscape installation and maintenance services for several of our properties for many years now.  Because of their expertise in horticulture, their attention to detail and their determination to provide “over-the-top” customer service, we know that our properties and their owners will be well cared for.

So, whether it’s one of our smaller 48 unit properties such as "Porto Vista" or one of our larger developments of 400+ units such as "Cypress Landing", or even one of our elegant riverfront high rises like "High Point Place", we trust Photoscape to not only enhance and maintain the landscaping, but to make our jobs as managers easier as well.

With regard to landscape installations, in the past three years Photoscape has done numerous installations or complete property reinstallations at several of our properties.  Those projects have ranged from $18,000 to more than $260,000 and have all come in on time and on budget.  These projects included not only shrub and turf installation, but Palm, tree, and irrigation installation as well. 

Photoscape’s ability to provide “virtual view” designs with the help of their robust landscaping software often allows us to see exactly what our landscape projects will look like both on our property and in front of our buildings.  Our owners can know in advance exactly what the installation is going to look like…and they like that.

We have found Photoscape Landscape and Design to be knowledgeable, professional, and ruthlessly honest in their dealings with my company.  I cannot recommend them highly enough.  Vernon “Oliver” Ray, the owner, is a man of character and vision.  His word is his bond.  He believes in the old adage, “the customer is always right” so completely, that on one occasion, in an effort to keep a few of our homeowners happy, he actually replaced shrubs that his company had installed more than two years before.  He didn’t have to, he chose to.

If you are looking for a landscaping company with expertise and professionalism and honor, you will not go wrong with Photoscape.

We met the Photoscape team a couple of years ago and were immediately impressed with their professionalism and organizational skills. We've used them for landscape design and installation, distressed property renovation, residential and commercial maintenance, tree trimming, and more. The skill and experience level of the Photoscape employees is obvious in their work. When Photoscape gets assigned a job, we know it's being handled correctly and, like clockwork, we receive updates and notice of completion.

We loved our experience with Photoscape Landscape and Design.  One of the things we were most impressed with was the quality and size of the plant and Palm material.  We were also taken with the friendliness and profesionalism of their entire staff.  They definitely go the extra mile in every regard.

When we met with the owner, Oliver, we told him what we wanted and the look and feel we would like to achieve in our landscaping.  He produced a design plan that was exactly what we were wanting plus a few special twists that made the entire design come together beauitfully.

The presentation booklet and digital PowerPoint of all the designs were not only detailed and beautiful, but the finished installation looked exactly like the design pictures.  He was willing to tweak anything we wanted in the designs and then show us revised designs.  Oliver never tired of answering questions and making revisions.

Most importantly of all, the follow-up and ongoing customer service after the installation was stellar! We have been burned before...but not this time. Photoscape claims to be a "faith-based" company, and if doing what you say when you say is any indication...they certainly are.

We recommend Photoscape without any reservations.  You will be impressed and you will be pleased if you employ them.

They go above and beyond and their precise attention to detail is limitless. Within two weeks of Photoscape's presence in our community, the impact was eye opening. They provide a high level of customer service and dedication that far exceed any company I have previously hired.

Oliver and his staff at Photoscape were recommended by our interior designer to proved the exterior "finish" to our new home in the Isles of Collier Preserve, Naples.  The landscape plan has now been executed and we are so impressed with the results!  The installation is beautiful and understated, using some unique plant and Palm species which now provide us with the comfort and privacy that we were seeking.  Oliver listens and then delivers and we are so pleased and proud of our new home.  Oliver and his staff are true, caring professionals and we recommend them "all day long"!

Our landscaping never looked as good until we contracted Photoscape. Photoscape's input, employees, and workmanship are a manager's delight.

This company is the most professional company I believe I've ever worked with. Their designer, Oliver, is not only brilliant with his landscape designs but he is a phenomenal artist.  It's as if your yard is a canvas and he has painted it with splendor.  He takes what you tell him you like and then designs the most beautiful Wonderland for your yard.  I could not be more satisfied or pleased.  Not only is his artistic design beautiful, but his company and all of its people are professional, efficient, thorough and dependable.  After they have finished the job, they continue to follow up.  They go above and beyond, making sure all of their plants and trees are healthy and thriving. I would highly recommend this company to anyone, both residential or commercial.

We built our home in the Verandah Golf Community in Fort Myers in 2006.  We liked our home, but had never liked our landscaping until this year.  We were constantly frustrated and disappointed with the landscaping and we tried numerous landscapers, all of whom never lived up to their promises of how much they would improve our property and maintain it well. We finally "lucked out" in February when we met and hired Oliver Ray, owner of Photoscape Landscape and Design.  He is very personable, reliable, professional and a fabulous designer.  Our property is now the "envy" of the Verandah community and it is all thanks to Oliver and his team at Photoscape Landscape and Design.
