Buffalo Valley / Located on two parcels zoned for Resource Management, this project prioritized enhancing habitat (especially for the red-legged frog) and providing native vegetation and riparian plantings. JLJA was instrumental in developing the arrival and entry sequence, as well as the pathway and trail connections between remote building areas. Key elements in the Master Plan include two ponds, a dock for fly fishing and boating, wild-land trails through the woods, an orchard, cutting gardens, and vegetable gardens. Reflecting the owners' fondness for entertaining, the site design includes an amphitheater/entertainment venue that is perfect for large parties.
