BETA coordinated all phases of landscape design, from schematic through Construction Documents, on this project, interfacing particularly with town boards. A key driver was the neighbors’ desire for a design keeping with surrounding areas, well screened with new plantings. The goal was to create a neighborhood atmosphere and preserve existing vegetation dating from the property’s former life as a farm, while integrating new landscape elements such as rain gardens and gathering areas. Several layouts accommodating different densities were developed.
