Clearing of trees and natural growth to make way for homes in the neighborhood is minimum. This gives a canopy effect to many of the trees, which are lined by naturally occurring plants.

Lots are cozy and well maintained. The abundance of shrubs, landscaping and natural trees provide a nice level of privacy from lot to lot. Although some homes are very close to their neighbors, the natural assets of the neighborhood prevent a feeling of being too close for comfort.
A sidewalk runs along Palm valley Road connecting Odom’s Mills walkers and joggers to Landrum Lane, the roundabout and even the beach.

Lots have been placed to make the most of the water in the neighborhood, which includes one large meandering body of water that spans the neighborhood and a smaller pond on the north side.
