Developer’s Love Of Trees Colors Homebuyers’ Decisions

  Fall-coloring trees in David Bagwell Company neighborhoods are vivid reminders that all luxury home developments aren’t created equal.

Each fall, neighborhoods of the David Bagwell Company put on a Joseph’s Coat of Many Colors, as trees planted along streets, in homeowners’ yards, and throughout common areas assume bright autumnal hues. This stunning display of color and the multitude of thoughtfully selected trees that engender it have become hallmarks of the developer’s new home neighborhoods in Northeast Tarrant County. This fact is made all the more evident when surveying other luxury home developments in the area, which by contrast tend to look rather drab and barren this time of year.

Potential homebuyers, who find Bagwell’s longstanding policy of planting several large specimen trees in the yards of new homeowners at no cost attractive, will be twice as tempted to buy a home in a Bagwell Company neighborhood this month. Throughout November he is “Going the Extra Yard” by offering an additional $3,500 worth of landscape trees and shrubbery, twice the already generous allotment, to customers who purchase a new, ready-for-occupancy home in any of his six Colleyville neighborhoods.

“Our goal is to put as many trees in the ground as possible before Mother Nature closes her winter grip on North Texas,” Bagwell explains. “We are busy planting in common areas of our developments now, for example, along The Solidago Trail in Old Grove and Whittier Heights; however, we’ve held back plenty of gorgeous trees to fulfill this special, limited time offer. We are also making available some magnificent hollies for foundation and even lawn planting, for those who buy before the end of the month. I believe the new residents who take advantage of the promotion will be richly rewarded for years to come,” he added.

“Homebuyers respond positively to the timeless aspects of our neighborhoods,” Bagwell continued. “We’re told almost daily of the palpable ‘sense of place’ created by our homes of classic design, our elaborate neighborhood-defining features, and our lavish tree planting. In the fall of the year, homeowners especially enjoy the trees we provide, because of their dramatic autumn leaf color.”

Bagwell neighborhood residents are not alone in their fondness for fall color. On the subject, French playwright Albert Camus said, “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” Namesake poet John Greenleaf Whittier wrote, “Beauty seen is never lost; God’s colors all are fast.” Beloved Southern garden writer, Elizabeth Lawrence, counseled, “Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.”

While hordes of “leaf peepers” flock to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia to ogle the fall foliage, the public is invited to enjoy a similar, much more convenient spectacle on a smaller scale in David Bagwell Company’s Colleyville neighborhoods. For more information on Bagwell’s “Going the Extra Yard” promotion, prospective homebuyers should call Cindy Brazil at 817-805-3822, and be sure to look for the “Tree-Mendous Bonus” signs in the yards of eligible homes.
