88 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Breedlove Land Planning Inc. Atlanta and Watkinsville, Georgia Rock Mill Park | Alpharetta, Georgia Rock Mill Park is a passive recreational site that also serves as an educational exhibit for the city of Alpharetta. This unique park is multiuse in nature, serving the public as well as operating as a maintenance center for Recreation and Parks Department personnel. It is located within the 100-year floodplain of Big Creek and offered numerous design challenges. Breedlove incorporated stormwater treatment facilities, including bioretention cells, enhanced swales and wetlands into the design. Dispersed throughout the park are informational signs educating the park's users about the various stormwater treatment facilities there, as well as the area's native wildlife, habitats and Cherokee history. Breedlove Land Planning, Inc., has been a multidisciplinary firm of landscape architects and civil engineers for over 30 years, serving clients with projects of any size and scope. While its 19 professionals are experienced in many ways, the company focuses on three primary sectors: education, parks and athletics. On staff are five principals, eight registered landscape architects and four professional engineers. Breedlove Land Planning's holistic design professionals are as comfortable designing a seat wall as they are a six-phase erosion, sedimentation and pollution control plan for a 50-acre site.
