Landscapes for Cresswind, A Residential Community
Creating landscapes for customers that live in planned communities involves helping each homeowner create an outdoor living space that meets their needs and incorporates their goals.
Cresswind on Lanier is an active adult community with nearly a thousand homes and building sites. Ten years old and growing, the Cresswind neighborhoods include not only homes and landscapes that are well-established, but also homes that are new or under construction. And so, our design and installation projects may vary in scale-from landscape renovations to brand-new landscapes. No matter the scope of the project, we work with the home owners to create gardens that please them, reflect their personalities and adhere to the community’s landscape guidelines.
Especially in a community setting like Cresswind, we enjoy the unique collaborative process with each homeowner that results in beautiful and happy neighborhoods.
Here are some examples of our design and installation projects with guidelines that, though they might apply in the creation of gardens for any setting, we find especially important when we are landscaping homes in a planned residential community.
Create a focal point or vignette in the garden that includes, for example, a water feature, a specimen plant, or an ensemble of some very unique plants.
Take advantage of challenging areas, making interesting use of spaces that would otherwise be insignificant.
Renovate or expand existing features or spaces that have been proven effective. Elements such as patios, walkways, raised bed or container gardens or water features that serve the homeowners needs but with a new look, add to the beauty of the new landscape.
