Anatolia Sunrise/ Douglas Streetscape

Rancho Cordova, California

Foothill Associates designed and produced landscape construction drawings for this extensive 5.92-acre streetscape bordering a new planned community in Rancho Cordova. Plans included a major gateway into the community and to the community clubhouse. The landscape improvement plans were prepared in conformance with Sacramento County standards, and include the use of traditional landscape plants artfully combined with drought-adapted and native California plants to balance the plant palette, complement the adjacent land uses, and accommodate client needs. Planting and irrigation plans were completed for this streetscape, as well as the construction design for entry monuments at key corners of the development and columns accenting the adjacent walls. Challenges included the expansion of Sunrise Boulevard’s existing 2 lanes up to 6 lanes with medians and a redesign of detached meandering sidewalk to make it more pedestrian friendly.
