Sustainability at Boyde's Crossing

By definition, pocket neighborhoods tend to be green communities. According to the popular sustainability website TreeHugger.com, "green communities naturally connect neighbors, re-think travel by decreasing reliance on cars, and encourage buying, growing and eating local."

Pocket neighborhoods are also environmentally friendly due to consuming less land and having a smaller carbon footprint, and provide homes that require much less maintenance.
