Bee Cave, Fort Worth, TX; Peoria, AZ
Landscape selections for the Peoria AZ, community were unique for a desert climate. We limited turf in favor of native and adaptive plants such as Pride of Barbados, Palo Verde and Desert Willow.
The courtyard offers a circulation path where residents will never encounter a dead end. Textures, colors and perfume of the native plants should reward residents without placing undue burden on the grounds maintenance team.
The rocky, dry stream-bed that traverses the courtyard functions both as a drainage system and a symbol of the great rivers of Arizona.
