Great Valley Crossing Toll Brothers Model Home

Outdoor kitchens are the crown jewel of today’s luxury homes. When Toll Brothers needed to put their best foot forward with their Great Valley Crossing model home, they returned to our team at Shearon Environmental to design and build a sumptuous outdoor space sure to entice and inspire potential homebuyers.

Our certified landscape architects rose to the challenge, creating a plan to showcase options for maximum impervious coverage with a 400 sq ft patio and custom grill station. Shearon builders used only genuine EP Henry materials to create the double-pier curved seating wall, patio floor, firepit and paving. A sleek, custom outdoor granite countertop serves as a bar and meal prep area. Integrated Alliance LED lighting provides an inviting glow for entertaining after dusk.

Optimizing the slim window between general construction schedule and opening day, Shearon’s planting crews brought the surrounding area to life in record time. The rich landscape palette included over two dozen types of flowering, ornamental and perennial plants to deliver year-round interest and beauty. Robust turf supported by a comprehensive irrigation system completed the transformation.

A Pennsylvania developer needed an upscale makeover for his commercial lot, and he called on us at Shearon Environmental Design. Our team of Certified Landscape Architects began by creating a custom planting plan to maximize curb appeal and budget parameters. Since our construction projects are run with Shearon-owned equipment and certified employee operators, we delivered a safe and worry-free process.

Our team excavated over 200 cubic yards of asphalt and subsoil in multiple locations. After preparing the site, we installed Belgian block curbing.This popular material lends the area an instant aesthetic boost, enticing desirable tenants and shoppers.

Next our workers planted a variety of trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials accented with decorative stone. The 11 finished islands, completed in a timeframe of under 3 weeks, greatly enhance the appeal of the plaza from the road as well as the common walkways.

Shearon Environmental Design was invited to cooperate with D3 Real Estate Development to bring to life this urban oasis in the heart of historic Philadelphia. Throughout the transformation, we provided streamlined communication and seamless transition between project phases.

Our design team, headed by certified landscape architects, began with a comprehensive review of the supplied shop drawings. Shearon’s recommendations were adopted in order to provide the project with optimal functionality and value.

Next our construction crew set to work on the excavation, grading and remediation of the area. Shearon’s ICPI certified hardscape craftsmen built the walkways, curbs and riverstone aprons. The highlight of this phase was installation of a custom bluestone terrace, which would add a lovely focal point as well as an inviting social space.

Completing the design Shearon’s professional landscape team planted a carefully chosen blend of greenery. Our selection of predominately native perennials paired with river birch and dogwood would ensure that this hardy landscape will deliver year-round beauty and delight residents for years to come.
