"Our tenants are very happy with the landscape changes, and it's helped us attract new tenants. With the new pervious pavers, ice no longer accumulates on the front walkway."

  • New front entry with striping to match building columns, and pervious pavers on the north sidewalk

  • Now the front entry is clear, and it complements the architecture.

  • The light tiles do not absorb heat in summer.

  • The "Before" picture with brick, the old concrete sidewalk and mow strip, and small granite veneer pavers.

  • Moving the walkway to the curb enabled us to have a much wider planting bed.

  • Who says native plants are not ornamental?

  • Ferns, evergreen hellebores, red maples, amelanchier (Service berry), and maple leafed viburnum

  • Simple, inexpensive pea gravel was installed around the covered exterior to discourage smokers from hanging out there.

  • The side entry with ADA access, pervious pavers, and native plantings

  • Native hollies at the side entry and handicap parking with easy access to the walkway

The new facade on a fifty year old office building never had a landscape to match. The entry was unclear, the plantings dreary, and ice always built up on the north facing sidewalk. Cheryl Corson repaved the steps and entry to make the entry obvious, and flipped the sidewalk placement, eliminating the grass mow strip along the curb and replacing the concrete with pervious pavers. Plantings included all native trees, shrubs, and perennials. The side entry, also with new pervious pavers, became truly ADA accessible, and the former smoker's hangout was moved further away from the building entry.
