What is a garden home?

Why hassle with a yard and home maintenance when you could be relaxing or spending the weekend barbecuing with friends? That’s some of the thinking that has led to an emerging line of maintenance-free homes, interchangeably called patio, courtyard, garden or village homes.

While the product name may vary among builders, the idea is the same: a single-family detached or duplex home on a small lot with amenities similar to a townhome or condominium, such as yard maintenance provided by the homeowner’s association or a community pool. Some include tennis courts, fitness/workout areas and walking trails.

So who is enjoying their empty nests and active senior years? “It’s really a lifestyle choice,” it makes available the freedom so looked forward to in retirement.

There are many Garden Home Communities in the Oklahoma City/Edmond area. They have different amenities such as pools, greenbelts, walking trails, workout facilities, lakes, tennis courts, gates, along with club houses that are for the communities use. Several of these communities are built on Golf Courses also.
