The pool deck is surrounded by tropical plant materials, which will make any resident feel as if they are on a tropical trip in their own backyards. To make this area more visually impactful to the residents, Lifescapes International lowered the gates around the pool area so that residents would not have to look through a fence to see the beauty and activity going on inside. Additionally, an outdoor fireplace, event lawn and poolside BBQ complete the recreational area of Circa 37. In all, the amenities and corresponding landscape design instantly allow residents to feel like they have been transported to a destination where they can play, relax and feel at home in luxurious and environmentally-sensitive surroundings.
