Fox Meadow Residential Development

Northfield, Illinois

The Lakota Group prepared the site plan and landscape design for Fox Meadow, a cluster home residential development in Northfield, which includes attached villa and single family homes, open space conservation areas, detention ponds, and a community park with a playground. The natural character of the site was enhanced by the preservation of wetlands and woods, as well as through the addition of special site design elements such as overlooks, decorative bridges, custom stone and wooden signage, and natural landscapes. Lakota also prepared detailed landscape plans for each home to ensure consistency and quality in the site’s overall character.

In 2014, at the request of the HOA, Lakota evaluated the overall landscape and provided a report with recommendations for maintenance and improvements to refresh key areas and maintain the original design intent.

The Illinois Home Builders Association awarded the project its prestigious Gold Key Award for “Outstanding Multi-Family Landscape Design.”
