Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet and a description of Post Properties/Post Landscape's overall approach to landscape and gardens.
General:
"Post Landscape, a division of Post Properties, designs, installs, and maintains with an in-house staff of over 100 people. Each apartment community site is unique and only conceptual designs are formally drawn on paper. All designs are generated in the field using the existing topography as a blank canvas. Each landscape architect paints bedlines on the ground and indicates which plants are used. The plants are determined from an ever-changing Preferred Plant List (PPL) that is updated annually. The Preferred Plant List is determined through a five-year testing process and availability of plants." Post Landscape uses the principles of xeriscaping (matching the right plant to the right place) and integrated pest management.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Larry Meister (landscape architect, 1978 to date); Don Rutzen (landscape architect, 1977 to date); Todd T. Tibbitts (horticulturist, 1983 to date); Carol Hooks (horticulturist, 1984 to date); John D. Hooks (officer, Post Landscape, 1979 to date); John A. Williams (owner, Post Properties); and Post Landscape (landscape contractors).

General:
"Post Landscape, a division of Post Properties, designs, installs, and maintains with an in-house staff of over 100 people. Each apartment community site is unique and only conceptual designs are formally drawn on paper. All designs are generated in the field using the existing topography as a blank canvas.

The Preferred Plant List is determined through a five-year testing process and availability of plants." Post Landscape uses the principles of xeriscaping (matching the right plant to the right place) and integrated pest management.
Of the 20 acres comprising the Post Chastain community, 12 acres are the Nancy Creek flood plain nature preserve, and the remaining eight acres contain 558 mid-rise apartment units. Because Nancy Creek rises above its banks during heavy rains, the floodplain is occasionally covered by up to four feet of water. Post chose plants for the area which can withstand periods of both inundation and drying, while providing a diverse natural habitat for animal and bird life.
