Heritage at Hawk Ridge
Lake St. Louis, MO

This 182-acre mixed-use residential community offers a growing concept of active adult community living in the St. Louis metropolitan area.  The project features 489 detached and attached single-family homes surrounding a nine hole executive golf course with a full range of recreational amenities. Gateway Design Studio was selected to provide planning and design services for the recreational center which included the clubhouse area, tennis courts, pool and bocce courts.


The scope of work included preparation of preliminary and final drawings for hardscape, landscape planting, irrigation sprinklers and exterior lighting. The overall landscape design represents a formal appearance with various seasonal flowering trees and perennial flowers suitable for this climate zone.


Designed recreational amenities include an in-ground pool and spa, garden trellis, tennis courts, regulation bocce courts and a feature waterfall at the signature 8th fairway. Special paving was used around the pool deck and entrance drop-off area which specifies colored concrete with a river rock stamped pattern as an accent border.

Plans also included landscape and monument signage design for the community main entrance.
