Project No.:
Situation: Stenson Physical Therapy
Commercial: New Commercial Property
Location: Butte, Montana

**This project was awarded the “Civic Improvement Landscape Award” 2012 for Butte!

Key Objectives:

This new commercial property had a number of landscape challenges. The location site had dramatic changes in elevation from the back to the front. The building had already been finished and the owner had discrepancies between his preliminary plot plan and what was awaiting his final construction approval.

Some of the issues that were not originally anticipated:

  • Steeper grade
  • Parking lot design did not meet city building code
  • Access was restricted due to the original design

The property owner contacted us to help bring the property to code and make building access easier from all levels of the property.

Project Scope:

After reviewing the plans and visiting the property, we redesigned the hardscape and landscape plans to comply with the city ordinances and meet the owner’s goals.

  • Retaining walls were constructed of brick and concrete and we split the parking areas into two separate areas for maximum access.
  • We constructed upper and lower raised landscape beds to give the property great curb appeal from the street.
  • We designed a curved walk-way and steps so that access could be gained from both the upper and lower parking areas.
  • We used large outcropping of rocks for balance and to blend into the natural landscape.
  • We added natural plantings which give the building color year round and used low-maintenance materials to lower costs.
  • Large Aspen trees were used to accent the tall roof line and soften the corners of the building.
