The Building of Brownwood – Large Tree Transplanting

The Villages, along with Landscape Architect Michael Pape, wanted to design and build a town center based around “Old Florida”. With so many residents of The Villages coming from other states around the country, they wanted to showcase a part of Florida that has been forgotten. Their vision was to landscape the town center with material that was native to Florida, while creating a mature canopy that would soften the empty site.
