More than 150,000 square feet of Planters, Entryways and Lawns Revamped

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA. (Feb. 3, 2016) – The Potomac Shores master-planned community has been carrying out a program to revamp over 150,000 square feet of landscaped areas in order to bring a colorful new look year-round to the 1,920-acre development along the Potomac River.

The effort to add more color and plantings to the property’s developed areas has been a major undertaking involving over 72,000 square feet of new sod; a total renovation of the Potomac Shores Parkway median with more than 4,000 daffodil bulbs, golden mop false cypress and crape myrtle; over 15,000 square feet of newly added planting beds for spring, summer and fall color; and more.

As part of the revamping, all community entrances have been replanted to produce a palette of year-round color. The main entry walls have been enhanced with new trees and plants that include red tip photinia, golden mop false cypress, liriope, crape myrtle and mondo grass. Throughout the various planter improvements, seasonal flowers and dwarf fountain grass have also been added. More landscaped areas will be added as future development progress in the months and years ahead.

The program to enhance the landscape in the developed areas of Potomac Shores is designed to complement the natural forests and meadows that abound throughout the property.

Potomac Shores is a 1,920-acre master-planned community being developed by SunCal, one of the largest real estate development companies in the U.S. that specializes in large-scale, mixed-use master-planned communities. The community features nearly two miles of shoreline on the Potomac River, 1,000 acres of preserved hardwood forests and streams, traditional Virginia Tidewater architectural designs and a new Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The transit-oriented development will offer a mixed-use town center, a new VRE commuter rail station, a planned marina and waterfront village, a resort hotel, and a corporate campus. It will also feature a private recreation center, two public schools, multiple sports fields, a network of trails and over 3,800 residences. For more information, visit
