Updates to GrandeVille’s Main Courtyard

We are excited about the current project underway to update the main courtyard in GrandeVille. The maintenance department has been hard at work laying down stone, planting and putting up wood railing accents along the walkways. Below you can see a few pictures of the current progress.
