Preuss Four: UPDATE

Well, it's been about a year since we completed our Preuss Four Small Lot project and we happened to have a chance to go by the homes and see how they're holding up and how the new homeowners are doing.

Overall, we can report that both are doing well.

The homeowners have done what we all do when we move in to a new place, they've made it their own. Several owners have added additional outdoor lighting in the yard area, and one has even started a garden that is overflowing with tomatoes. Nice job!

The homes themselves look as wonderful as the day we finished them. The landscaping that we installed has grown fuller of course, and the trees in the back are slowly maturing. 

We have received some wonderful feedback from our owners and we're taking those lessons and putting them to good use in our new projects.

When we first planted these agave in the bio-filtration planters, they were about the size of a softball. In just the first year, with minimal watering, they are thriving.

The black bamboo we planted is also doing well, giving the homeowners natural privacy from those walking along the public sidewalk.

This isn't our lot, it belongs to our neighbor. As we've often witnessed, new development and site improvements are contagious. Here our neighbor has taken out her lawn and planted a charming little vegetable garden.
