Saiki Design designed the site and landscape for the Culvers Franchising Systems headquarters in Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. The landscape complements the prairie style building and preserves and integrates with the rural setting. Native prairie provides the backdrop for broad sweeps of perennials along the entry drive. Closer to the building, display gardens and a waterfall and pond are enjoyed through expansive windows or along paver walkways. A terraced rear patio overlooks the Wisconsin River. A small woodlot was preserved along with an old windmill and silo, enhancing the distinct but unified rural charm that permeates the site.
The landscape also embodies low-impact development (LID) principles and highlights adaptive storm water management practices. Roof water is discharged directly into the landscape without the aid of gutters and downspouts; two small ponds collect and filter runoff from the paved surfaces.
