Stormwater Management, Surface Drainage, Design/Build

Shearon Environmental Design is proud to unveil its newest specialty project: The Sora Pool Club for Post Brothers at Presidential City Apartments in Philadelphia, PA. Starting with the total demolition of the existing pools and infrastructure in 2014, Shearon helped Post Brothers transform the area into a new layout in 2015. Shearon installed a new stormwater system, as well as a 12,000 sq.ft. infiltration basin, including all new drainage structures and tie-ins. We also completed excavation work and concrete pours for all new retaining walls including the featured foundation walls. Shearon was able to construct four reflecting pools on the property. The entire site was graded for all new features including pool decks, bocce courts, parking lots, as well as outdoor living areas. Once the construction phase was complete, landscaping design work began for the newly renovated apartment buildings. The landscape phase included tree work, fine grading and sod, new plantings, a dog park and irrigation installation as part of the total site renovation.

Backyard Re-design

West Chester, Pennsylvania

Residential Work

Built in 2014, Shearon Environmental Design helped to redesign this backyard retreat for a homeowner in West Chester, PA. Shearon’s team of landscape architects, horticulturists, and arborists worked closely with the clients to develop a Master Plan based on their needs and wants as well as functionality of their backyard. The plan features a range of trees, shrubs, and perennials that were used to provide continual blooms throughout the seasons.┬áThe landscape design provides a smooth transition between contemporary and natural design. This allows the homeowner to experience a contemporary entrance and patio as well as being able to enjoy their simplistic surroundings.
