Highwoods Plaza

Location: Brentwood, Tennessee
Client: Highwoods Eakin & Smith

Lose & Associates developed comprehensive landscape architectural designs for the two-building Highwoods Plaza, located in Maryland Farms in Brentwood, Tennessee. Designed to draw people into the complex, our site plans complement and support the architectural elements and overall character of surrounding facilities. Our work includes the landscape treatment of detention areas, parking lots and building entrances, and we sited several signs for effective visual impact.

Raised planters and container gardens provide seating while directing movement through the plaza, and are strong focal points at each entry. Most plantings around the buildings are native to Middle Tennessee and will provide four-season color while reducing maintenance. A massing of color using a simplified plant palette was used to best enhance the building facades.

Lose & Associates also provided for a large, well-driven irrigation system, including elements of drip irrigation, to keep Highwoods Plaza’s plant materials in good health.
