The Gardens of Somerset will be laid out following classical design principles with architectural detailing based on the regional Louisiana vernacular. This community will bring together clustered areas of development, public and private areas, green spaces, gardens, water elements, public pathing, entertainment resources,  residential  zones,  nature  preserves,  and an exercise facility.
