Community Development

WDS offers a full range of landscape architectural services to community development projects. These project can include master planned residential communities, multi-family, and specialty residential categories such as age-restricted and private care-giving facilities.


Designs for clients in this category of work focus on establishing a cohesive look and feel for residents to enjoy, with an emphasis on creating carefully designed common use amenities and spaces.


The key to this field of landscape architecture is “home,” exemplified by:

  • Designing places people will be proud to call home.

  • Executing on and enhancing the project vision established by the builders/developers

  • Creating a recognizable theme that is community, context, and environmentally appropriate.

  • Recognizing that different residential products require different landscape solutions; but all must fit within the larger community context.

  • Understanding that landscapes age and mature over time, and that design and maintenance specifications must reflect that.
