Landscape is Carefully Integrated with Community’s Natural Character
The 685-acre Idyllwilde community includes a diversity of single family home neighborhoods and home designs, parks, trails and natural open spaces, and school sites. All of these elements have been carefully integrated with the natural character of the site to create a distinctive residential community. The heart of the community has neo-traditional, village-like atmosphere of alley loaded single family homes on lots as small as 3,500 square feet. A country setting will be maintained by framing these neighborhoods with traditional larger lot residences, and 300 acres of parks, native cottonwood lined stream beds and high prairie.
Stanley Consultants planned and designed the landscape concept for Idylwilde's thoroughfares including a naturalized yet lush planting scheme for the large center median as well as the right of way. Meandering bands of native turf, drought tolerant shrubs and ornamental grasses create a dramatic theme while still respecting the native character of the site.
