The landscape master plan is a tree focused framework that organizes and defines the varying functional requirements and specific areas. Deliberate tree selection was rigorously applied to distinguish the needs and objectives of each space including spatial enclosure, shade requirements, drought tolerance, branch structure, blooming cycle and fall colour. Positioned within the drop-off circle is an orchard of flowering trees on axis with the main entry approach that is reinforced by staggered stone seatwalls countered by linear ornamental grass borders.
