Westland Resource’s Landscape Architecture Group has been the landscape architect on 10 Christopher Todd apartment communities in various cities around the Phoenix valley between 2016 and 2019. These are apartment home communities that range in size from 130 units to over 400. Westland has been responsible for the planning and design of pool areas, site amenities, site walls, entry monumentation, accent lighting, planting and irrigation design on all of these projects.

The Challenge

Create inviting landscapes with seasonal interest for Luxury Rental Home Communities while understanding tight space constraints, microclimates and individual municipal requirements.

The Solution

Westland collaborated with the client, engineers, architect and pool contractor to design a community that has year-round seasonal landscape interest. WestLand provided themed main entry drives with porticos, lush but low water use plant material, theme walls, entry monumentation and accent paving. The community planting design and palettes were created based on plant attributes such as water needs, bloom time and color, ultimate plant size and eventual maintenance requirements to insure a long-term successful landscape. Pool and common space areas were created to incorporate amenities such as event lawns, ramadas, fire features, spas, barbecue areas, specialty paving and site furnishings.

The Result

The resulting landscapes are an integral part of these rental home communities. The themed project entries provide instant curb appeal to prospective tenants and has generated rapid leasing. The thoughtful planting design at the individual homes provide an attractive environment to the residents. The amenity and common space areas are lush and green providing a resort atmosphere.
