Leaf & Petal at the Summit
Vestavia Hills, Alabama
Leaf and Petal is a garden shop and lifestyle brand offering home décor and nursery plants. For their third location, Leaf and Petal at the Summit, Renta Urban Land Design provided the master planning, rezoning application, and hardscape and landscape designs. Prior to 2016, the site was zoned for residential use and was occupied by six houses. The owner of Leaf and Petal, Jamie Pursell, sought a vision to create a location beyond work and home where community can gather. The concept combines the Leaf and Petal garden shop with a bagel shop [Crestline Bagel] and a Latin restaurant [El Zun Zun]. RULD planning and zoning services helped to get this site rezoned to commercial mixed use.
Located on a 16 acre site, the office exists as a LEED SILVER certified
project with Renta Urban Land Design in charge of master planning, hardscape design, and landscape architecture for the corporate headquarters.

RULD provided site planning, hardscape design, and landscape design for the Brock’s Gap Brewing Company: Hoover, Alabama’s first brewery. The founders of the company are locals of Hoover and named the brewery after a suburb in the city-- hoping to create a gathering place that could host small concerts, community events, and moderate crowds. Our team helped bring this vision to life in the creation of a unique outdoor lawn space that invites visitors to stay and engage in social activities.
