Our firm was engaged by the developer to prepare an overall master plan for this 30 house neighborhood near the new core village. Our team did extensive site inventory and analysis as a basis for a series of neighborhood planning schemes.
Working with a team of other design professionals, we arrived at the placement of each home in the neighborhood and established a series of prototype landscapes featuring native plants. Verdant then continued to work with the individual lot owners, several architects and the builder on the development of each home site in the neighborhood.
The result is a unified streetscape which is integral to the design of each home site and which preserved the local character of the maritime forest through diligence in tree saving measures and the predominant use of indigenous plant materials.
