Can you help me rent out the property when it's completed?

How much space will I have around the building?
A lot depends on the house type you select but once you’ve made a decision our team of architects can work with you to confirm the exact details of how much space will be left for gardening and other purposes.
Are you providing landscaping in and around the estate?
We have planted and are still planting trees and by the time we conclude this project we would have planted over 400 trees within the community making this a truly tropical garden. Our architects also work with homeowners to design their gardens with their own choicest selection of trees and plants.
