WatersMark Natural Beauty
Though the home sites are small, the developers left as much natural vegetation intact as possible, and it was done that way by design. The dense, natural vegetation, which includes cedar trees and underbrush, does give each home a sense of privacy. They carved narrow roads, which adds an element of surprise when you turn a corner and see an opening in the vegetation only to find a narrow street that leads to a row of houses.
The common areas were also designed to keep the look of the wild in the landscaping. Certain times of the year you’d think the common areas grew wild and other times of the year, the wildflowers looking perfectly maintained. The manmade vs. wild that the developers set out to create was executed well.
