Landscaping in a community is more than providing an aesthetically pleasing environment for residents. Sometimes landscaping ends up bringing lasting memories to those who grow up in that community; the kind that last for generations. Take a look around downtown Woodstock and how beautiful the combination of landscaping and hardscaping is. It is evident that the design and flow of the Park at City Center with the easily accessible sidewalks and sitting area off of Chambers Street were all designed and developed with community in mind.
Take another look at the beautiful boulevard feel of Sixes Road with the medians well groomed with landscaping, trees, and mulch. This stretch of road is enjoyable for all who travel by car, by foot, and by bike. Sixes Road dead ends into the entryway of BridgeMill. The entryway itself is a landscaping feast for the eyes with all of the beautiful greenery and hardscaping elements that are well maintained throughout the year. It is no wonder that both of the areas along Sixes Road and entering into BridgeMill are commonly being worked on by landscape crews. After all, it takes dedication to carry out the design on a regular basis with maintenance.
Landscape architects designers, work with construction professionals to facilitate their designs in a way that is most useful and fits a given community’s aesthetic. For example, some communities would look great with a number of brick cycling paths even though bikes generally do better on a well-made asphalt trail. A mountain bike will ride on either, but one community’s look is going to differ from another community’s. That’s why it’s important to have solid landscaping architecture in our community.
