Increasing Property Value: Class A Building

This landscaping project was part of a complete property overhaul that started within the building and extended to the outside.  Our portion of the project consisted of changing the appearance of the exterior to a much more desirable and Modern look.  The entire building was painted and decorative metal was added in addition to a new front entry roof structure.

Our landscape installation started with the removal of the shrubs installed decades ago.  We continued by converting the existing irrigation spray heads to drip irrigation.  This is a much more efficient design especially with our limited planting design.  After other trades completed the installation of the new roof structure we finished out the front entry with installation of a 12”x24” flamed granite paver.

In the middle of this walkway is located a raised planter bed with three Japanese maples.  We finished off the project with installation of metal edging located 3’ from the building perimeter.  In this planter we hand placed Mexican Beach Cobble Rock.  In between metal panels we placed groups of two Swedish aspens with one Karl Forester grass located between each tree grouping.

This landscape made for a very simplistic and Modern look.  It’s sleek and stylish.  It complimented the improvements made to the building’s exterior.  In addition, it also matched the architecture styles inside.
