Matthew Lombardo has, for the most part, been a self-taught designer (reading and doing); he believes you cannot make an artist… you can teach concepts and learn techniques, but to be a designer/artist you must have an artistic ability along with a passion for what you do.
Matthew has received further education and training from the University of Florida and the Green Industries, along with his competence certifications on Sanibel Island as a Licensed landscape contractor.
Regarding water features, Matthew has been certified and approved as one of the only Aquascape contractors here in SWFL for his years of experience in the area. As a company, Lombardo Landscaping & Water Features holds state certifications and licenses for landscaping, brick pavers, and ornamental water features.
Matthew has been recently spotlighted in The News Press Home section for his design and work at a local Symphony Society “Designer show house” here in Southwest Florida.
