Carriagewood Estates Entry Garden
Carriagewood Estates is a 98-acre, 122-lot residential development located on Vignes Rd., developed by G.M. Investments, LLC. Engineering, surveying, and landscape architecture services were provided by SJB Group, LLC. The development was completed in 2007 and homes are currently being constructed.
During the design phase, the developers indicated they wanted a carriage house to be located in the entry island at the main entrance to the subdivision with amenities to match. Using the theme of a carriage house, an entry garden was then designed in a French formal garden style, using old St. Louis brick and pea gravel walkways. The planting was then designed using southern Louisiana vernacular cypress trees, indigenous ornamental grasses and various groundcovers.
