Inspirational Green Landscaping Increases In Idaho

Public green spaces inspire healthy, active lifestyles, and every community in America needs a long-range green space plan or conservation plan, says Ed McMahon, a senior fellow for sustainable development with the Urban Land Institute. He adds that proximity to green space entices developers, increases property values, and generates jobs. It also boosts economic development and contributes to improved public health.

Efforts in Caldwell, Idaho to uncover the Indian Creek is an example of revitalization focused on developing spaces that invite communities to enjoy the outdoors. For some architects, it is important to incorporate outdoor space and health-conscious design when planning. Design and development with an emphasis on sustainability is also important.

Natural Offerings in Idaho and Boise

The 11th & Idaho Tower – a 10-storey construction - was built with the focus on a sustainable work environment, with the ceilings and walls on the first floor covered in wood. When you enter the building, a large screen displays videos of Idaho’s most beautiful landscapes. Cladding on the building’s exterior is made of 100% natural materials, offering resistance to extremes of heat and cold, and the stone is made from recyclable materials. The windows were designed to offer as much natural light as possible, and the plumbing system installations are in accordance with green standards. The building favors the use of outdoor areas: tenants’ spaces will open directly onto a park with an abundance of grass and trees.

The landscape in Boise, with its foothills, hiking trails, parks, and rivers, lends itself to enjoyment of the outdoors. Following an enjoyable hike to the top of Table Rock you can enjoy a panoramic view of Boise and Treasure Valley. Camel’s Back Park is a great place to spend the day with family and friends. You can enjoy the verdant, grassy fields, picnic areas and the playground. Another park, Rose Garden, boasts a large variety of plants and flowers and miles of landscaped grassy areas. Albertsons Park is a firm favorite in Boise with fishing ponds, and superb landscaping.

Commercial as well as private properties can greatly benefit from a well-tended and inviting landscape. This is why people in Boise rely on professionals to do the job. If you own or rent a property in Boise, there are several reasons for considering using a professional lawn and landscaping company. Landscaping has two components. Lawn care that involves fertilizing, and insect, disease, and weed control, and lawn maintenance, which involves mowing and edging. A professional landscaping company covers many or all of these tasks and ensures that your garden is ecologically in-tune.

Merging Nature and Progress

For the outdoor enthusiast, Idaho offers incomparable rugged beauty. But it’s up to developers and landscapers to ensure that this beauty is retained and incorporated into every project. New developments like the 27 story building in downtown Boise is not just about providing retail, commercial, and residential space. The developers are aware of how including green space is now a prerequisite and are planning on adding a rooftop outdoor garden that complements the surrounding area and landscaped in a way that’s both conscious and sustainable.
