Respect for the environment is something taken very seriously at Pradera. This belief is evident in the community land plan, building and landscaping covenants and golf course. All three were designed to preserve, enhance and reflect the natural beauty of the land, particularly when it comes to the West’s most precious commodity – water.
By utilizing less than half the turf of a traditional golf course and a state-of–the art irrigation system, the Club at Pradera golf course uses significantly less water than a typical 18-hole course.
The community landscaping, which was recently updated, conserves water by having a design that includes small amounts of irrigated sod surrounded by mulch and rock.
Finally, individual homesites were designed to minimize the impact of development on the environment. Each homesite has a specific building zone for both the home and landscaping. The large homesites found in the Custom Collection at Pradera are limited to 7,500 square feet of irrigated turf, and landscape guidelines encourage a natural transition between landscaping and native areas.
