Developer: Bollinger Diversified Properties

Architect: Benner Stange

Landscape Contractor: Silver Creek Landscaping

Mowed turf was planted in the vulnerable planters between the commercial tenants and the main parking field where heavy foot traffic occurs. Spray heads with small radius nozzles provide good coverage with minimal over-spray.

Crape Myrtle trees are used in the areas immediately in front of the buildings since they can be kept low enough to keep signs visible.  The larger canopy trees, which are necessary to meet City shade requirements, are planted further from the signs and are chosen for their high branch pattern, which keeps signs visible as the trees mature.

Planting is relatively subdued on much of the frontage to highlight the accent plants at the entry drives. Wide turf areas along the Roseville Parkway frontage provide an inviting environment for pedestrians using the meandering bike path.

Native plants and plants with a native appearance were installed adjacent to the protected wetlands to the north of the site. Mondell Pines, Deergrass and Dwarf Manzanita are the primary plant species.
