  6. 6. United Methodist Church <ul><li>This church has a flat roof and we took their water issues into consideration by creating a dry river bed. The water flowed under the walkway, through a culvert, and into the parking lot. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>
  7. 7. United Methodist Church <ul><li>We shaped berms around the labyrinth to create a more intimate space near the entry. There is also a secondary access path to make the space more free-flowing, allowing viewpoints from many angles. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>
  8. 8. United Methodist Church <ul><li>A hardscape patio is very harsh by itself. With the addition of carefully selected plant material, the space takes on a much more personal feel and allows visitors to feel at home. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>
  9. 9. United Methodist Church <ul><li>The shapes and patterns of the labyrinth allow visitors to experience an individual meditative state. The journey each visitor experiences can encompass many different meanings. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Senses are enhanced through the use of benches and plant materials. Visitors can sit and feel the wind or smell the roses as they enjoy the garden. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>United Methodist Church
  11. 11. <ul><li>Details are stressed at every point throughout the project. Our attention to detail in this picture shows the level of craftsmanship that Bever Landscaping is known for. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>United Methodist Church
  12. 12. <ul><li>Careful project management of this church allowed us to reuse site materials to reduce cost. We also kept this working church happy during installation by working around their schedule with our equipment, deliveries, and their daycare center safety concerns. </li></ul><ul><li>A During 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B During 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 5 </li></ul>United Methodist Church
  13. 13. St. Therese <ul><li>A barren grassland was transformed into a tranquil setting that the residents of St. Therese could vacation to once a day. Patients suffering from MS, Alzheimer's, strokes and heart attacks were the focus of this garden. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  14. 14. St. Therese <ul><li>With limited capacity to “get their hands dirty,” special gardens were created to be accessible and enjoyable to the patients using wheelchairs and walkers. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  15. 15. St. Therese <ul><li>Grading and water problems were handled on this difficult site. Heavy clay soil and accessibility was a challenge that is not evident with the final product. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  16. 16. St. Therese <ul><li>Within each unique space, there are ample viewing opportunities for the patients to visit with their families. Again, patient accessibility was achieved through careful attention to paving slope and texture. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  17. 17. St. Therese <ul><li>Raised water and planting features put the landscape and the experience at the fingertips of the patients. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  18. 18. St. Therese <ul><li>Aesthetics are integrated with the five senses in this setting. Each of the three waterfeatures in this garden have their own unique purpose and goal. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  19. 19. St. Therese <ul><li>The pergola allows for shady contemplation. The use of an architectural feature also helps to match the scale of the building and create height differences in a relatively flat space. </li></ul><ul><li>A After 1 </li></ul><ul><li>B After 2 </li></ul><ul><li>C After 3 </li></ul><ul><li>D After 4 </li></ul><ul><li>E After 5 </li></ul><ul><li>F After 6 </li></ul><ul><li>G After 7 </li></ul>
  20. 20. St. Andrews The goal of St. Andrews was to extend their inner santuary space into their backlot. A Columbarium was the main purpose of the space. Rain gardens were also be implemented. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6
  21. 21. St. Andrews With a 12’ grade difference and existing drain pipes to work around, large walls were created to support the pavement and create the spaces. Many footings were buried for future columbarium expansion. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6
  22. 22. Green space was added amongst the plantings to meet both the open and intimate goals of the church. Space was left open in the planting beds for the future addition of sculptures. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6 St. Andrews
  23. 23. The entire project is ADA compliant. The wide walkways lead to the main service space and can comfortably accommodate group settings for up to 100 people. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6 St. Andrews
  24. 24. Permeable pavers were used to manage the water runoff from the pavement and the roof. The three footings seen here were installed in the fall to make the spring phase more affordable and easily manageable. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6 St. Andrews
  25. 25. This paved area also has three buried footings for future Columbariums, but does not interfere with the space at the present time. This future phase will accommodate an additional 500 niches. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6 St. Andrews
  26. 26. This curved section of a contrasting pavement material is used as a prayer circle for small outdoor services of approximately 25 people. The wall is at a comfortable seating height. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6 St. Andrews
  27. 27. This photo shows a secondary point of access to and from the parking lot. This path meanders through the trees, and is also sloped and graded to be ADA compliant. A Before B During C After 1 D After 2 E After 3 F After 4 G After 5 H After 6 St. Andrews
  28. 28. Mid-America Financial We transformed this blank hallway into a useable and visually pleasing space. Mid-America was able to increase their premium office space rentals with the addition of this courtyard space. A After 1 B After 2 C After 3
  29. 29. Mid-America Financial This shows the waterfeature as the focal point to the space. One of the challenges of working indoors is containing and managing water. A After 1 B After 2 C After 3
  30. 30. Mid-America Financial Adding outdoor features to the indoors appeals to the senses, as you hear water, touch plant textures, see light patterns change, and listen to the ripples. It also helps to break up the monotony of typical indoor gathering spots. A After 1 B After 2 C After 3
  31. 31. St. Lawrence Because of our expertise in paving, we were recommended by the Baltimore Labyrinth Co. to make this intricate design a reality for St. Lawrence. A During 1 B During 2 C After 1 D After 2 E After 3
  32. 32. St. Lawrence The planning involved in this project included many templates, a maze of string line levels, and the most intricate test of patience and saw-cutting ability one can experience. A During 1 B During 2 C After 1 D After 2 E After 3
  33. 33. St. Lawrence This project was made possible through a donation by one of the elders of the church. It is dedicated in memory of her late husband, who suffered from Alzheimer’s. A During 1 B During 2 C After 1 D After 2 E After 3
  34. 34. St. Lawrence Alzheimer’s patients have been know to respond well to the shapes and patterns of the labyrinth, making it the perfect choice for churches, hospices, and places of contemplation. A During 1 B During 2 C After 1 D After 2 E After 3
  35. 35. St. Lawrence It takes a special company and a group of expert installers to make this project possible. Our success on this installation led to an award and national recognition for this project. A During 1 B During 2 C After 1 D After 2 E After 3
