Hillside CommunitiesGreenWorks provided planting, irrigation, and hardscape design for this senior citizen housing development. This $23 million project incorporates 75 acres and includes facilities for assisted living, Alzheimer’s care, congregate care apartments and cluster homes. Stone was used extensively in plaza areas to provide residents with pleasant gathering spaces. The planting scheme utilizes plant materials that were popular when most of the residences were young adults. GreenWorks also provided planning and detailing of a courtyard for Alzheimer’s patients. Much care was taken to provide an unthreatening area for strolling, utilizing plant materials that do not cause any potentially harmful effects.
