The Landings at Nellis Air Force Base
South Beck & Baird developed comprehensive landscape architecture plans for the 317-acre military housing development situated in southern Nevada. The master plan included 1,180 homes, a four-mile pathway, 24 acres of grassed common areas, picnic structures and playgrounds. The property also boasts a community center and swimming pool, featuring landscaped islands and dual waterfalls cascading over real boulders.
Throughout the design, SBB and the team of sub-consultants incorporated elements which blend naturally with the surrounding environment. The team also focused on water conservation for the desert location. Plans specified a computer-controlled irrigation system which abides by the stringent low water use requirements of the Southern Nevada Water Authority and saves the development approximately $100,000 on water bill each year.
South Beck & Baird has provided landscape construction plans for nearly 20 military housing developments across the country, from Pearl City Naval Base in Hawaii to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware to Fort Bliss in Texas.
