In line with our eco friendly initiatives and goal to offer quality, environmentally friendly housing, we have designated garden space at each of our locations. We have done away with the treated lawns, and are working to implement rain gardens, food gardens, and tenant friendly spaces.

Each property has a unique garden with edibles and other usable plants. We, the gardeners, want you to benefit from the beauty and sustenance of the garden!

It is the goal of the gardening team to create spaces the tenants can use. The level of participation in the garden projects is up to you; from just a good view out of your window, to planting your own plants, or spending some quality time caring for the garden. We would love to be working with you in the garden talking plants and plans.

As the growing season is now in full swing, we will provide updates with what plants are growing in your yard, what there is to eat, how to harvest, and helpful tips/uses for your harvest.

If you have any questions or suggestions, you can reach us at and we will forward it to our head gardener!

Thank you!
