“Landscape pleases the eye, keeps business dry”, is the title of the article written by Robert Behre on March 10, 2013 regarding our work on the new Goodwill building on John’s Island.  We worked with the client and engineer to design a series of rain gardens in the parking lot and around the perimeter to handle stormwater and provide a visually appealing planting design.  A wire fence with native coral vine in the rear provides a screen that is also beautiful.

Once it has had a chance to grow in, the diversity of native plant material will provide wildlife habitat, while maintaining the rural character of the island and a visually appealing landscape.

A recent article in the Winter 2011 issue of Charleston Home and Design Magazine relates the story of the Briar’s Creek golf course/residential development on John’s Island, SC.  The article features a photo of the clubhouse for the development.  JR Kramer was a part of the design team that prepared the planting plan for the Clubhouse.  He had an important role in developing the plant palette and layout for the design.  In keeping with the environmental friendly goals of the development, the majority of the plants are native to this region and provide great visual impact and sense of place as well as wildlife food and cover.  You can read the full article online.

In addition, one page over from the article (pg 212) you will find our ad featuring photos from a recently completed project in the Briar’s Creek development.
