Suncadia’s Planting Design Objectives

--Utilize new plantings to preserve and extend the forest landscape and enhance the natural setting for your home.
--Use plants that are adapted and native to the climate, are less invasive and require less water and maintenance.
--Minimize the visibility of non native plant materials, as viewed from off site.
--Use plants to frame outdoor spaces, lessen the impact of new structures, enhance privacy and screen use areas.
