This 55 or better community is located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Southern New Jersey suburbs. One of the main goals of this community was to bring the look and feel of a southeastern 55 or better community to the northeast.
To welcome guests and homeowners to the community we utilized bold colors at the community entrance. This was achieved through the clever use of different trees, shrubs, perennials and seasonal color. We complemented the existing guard house and entrance monuments with brick paver entrance drive aprons. The whole entrance landscape was irrigated.
One of the major features of a 55 or better community is the clubhouse, where all of the residents can get together and participate in group activities. We were able to help facilitate this need through our landscape services. Some of the site amenities we constructed include bocce courts, a golf putting green and a gazebo. These amenities fit seamlessly within the clubhouse area with the help of the surrounding landscape and it’s contrasting colors and textures. To add to the luxurious feel of the community center, we installed brick paver walkways and lush, green sod. The whole clubhouse landscape was irrigated.
Each home was planted with it’s own simple landscape package, the lawns were sodded and the landscape irrigated. The design of the landscape packages was designed to provide the look and feel of a small town neighborhood streetscape.
This project turned out to be a successful project that the client was able to sell out quickly and that the community members are and will be able to enjoy for years to come.
