REAL ESTATE’S LANDSCAPE SAVANTS

Thirty-six years of landscape work around the world have prepared the Fort Lauderdale-based Rhett Roy for one of its buzziest commissions to date: the 7-acre grounds of The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach. Large trees, such as gumbo limbos, live oaks, sabal palms and royal poincianas will provide canopy cover, while timber bamboo species will grace the exterior of the building along the waterfront villas for a lush look and feel. The highlight of the main lobby view will be a striking sea grape tree with outstretched low-lying branches that will extend upward into a curled and twisted natural sculpture. rhettroy.com; theresidencesmiamibeach.com
