Bustling residential community Ave Maria in Southwest Florida prides itself on show-stopping landscapes carefully maintained by a team of Davey experts.
Driving through the pristine streets of Ave Maria feels like stepping back in time. Nestled in the Everglades, this 4,000-acre secluded and self-sustained townhouses two parks, multiple golf courses, a water park, and 1.7 million square feet of downtown retail space that are always alive with activity as neighbors gather. Bursting with bright flowers, rustling ornamental grasses, and swaying palm trees, residents and visitors relish in the natural beauty of Ave Maria. While this community feels like a paradise, it’s carefully constructed and maintained by an expertly trained crew.
Since 2014, Davey Tree has been on-site to care for the landscape of Ave Maria’s expansive public areas and parks. Crews can be seen on the property daily, mowing turf, weeding, and trimming hedges. A regularly maintained irrigation system helps the plant life in Ave Maria thrive while promoting water management solutions that are both cost-effective and sustainable. Every quarter, Davey crews rotate flowers in entryways and downtown areas to keep the atmosphere fresh and inviting.
Davey crews are also onsite to prune trees on Ave Maria grounds, ensuring the health of their urban forest and the safety of their residents.
Going Beyond Grounds Maintenance
Davey’s partnership with Ave Maria has grown beyond grounds maintenance. Davey sponsors and participates in two golf outings with Ave Maria that help fund their university scholarships and local Veterans Association. Davey also lends a hand to the private K-8 school on-site, creating a path in the park areas that is used by their cross-country team.
With a strong and lasting relationship that continues to grow, Davey has helped build a flourishing landscape for Ave Maria’s tight-knit community to enjoy.
