The master-planned East Garrison Community provides not only homes, parks, and open spaces to the residents, but also includes community services such as a library, community center, and a fire station. The East Garrison Fire Station landscape serves two functions, fire service and continuity of landscape to the development. Situated on a prominent entry corner, the drought-tolerant landscape softens the utilitarian building with native trees, shrubs, and groundcovers. Colorful perennials and flowering trees give the fire station a sense of place and distinction. BFS worked closely with local agencies to ensure that all safety requirements such as visibility, access, and security were all addressed. Both the developer and the municipal fire agency are proud of their fire station. The fire station has won both local and state awards for landscape.
