124 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Verdant Enterprises Savannah, Georgia Residence Bluffton, South Carolina Working in collaboration with the architect, Verdant Enterprises sited structures and oversaw all other outdoor improvements with deference to a beautiful grove of live oaks overlooking the Colleton River. Verdant was responsible for developing concepts, budgets, and architectural review documents for all elements outside the buildings including alternate pool studies and a walled entry garden. Special features included a small Charleston- style courtyard with a sculpture and pool. The gardens feature traditional Southern horticulture within a backdrop of hardy, native plantings. A second phase focused on the design of a custom water feature for the guest house garden. This entailed full design and project management services and coordination of an arborist, an aquatic consultant, a landscape contractor, and other trades. The resulting garden acts as a tranquil, alluring outdoor room. Verdant Enterprises is a full service landscape architecture firm in its 21st year of business. Based in the heart of downtown Savannah, Georgia, it serves a three-state area that includes Georgia and the Carolinas. Verdant was green before it was cool to be green. Verdant specializes in the creative use of native plants amid traditional Southern favorites, innovative stormwater recovery and management, regionally astute hardscape design, outdoor living spaces and custom architectural detailing. While the team is regionally recognized for its knowledge of ecology and indigenous plant material the firm has developed a range of expertise in creating a strong sense of connection between people and a place. The firm founder and principal is Thomas Angell; Jessica Higgins is the associate landscape designer (LEED Green Associate credential).
