Moran Gulf Shipping Courtyard and Grounds

Landscape design services were provided for this office building’s courtyard, and grounds.

The landscape was complemented with a lighting design that sets a nice tone for evening gatherings.

The courtyard hardscape was designed in a semi-circle pattern with bands of landscape and walkway. A combination of concrete colors and patterns create a unique sense of place in the courtyard.

On the outer band of concrete walkway, two trellises provide shade for a couple of seating areas. The benches and receptacles in the seating areas are Faux-Wood Reinforced Aluminum for a wood look without the maintenance. A third trellis and hardscape details accent the main entry of the courtyard and create a grand entry to the building.
