1st Lake is Eco-Friendly and You Can Be Too!

Here at 1st Lake, we work hard to make every day feel like Earth Day. Check out some of the steps we are taking to be environmentally friendly!


When creating our well-thought-out landscaping plans, we have the earth in mind!

We have over 10,000 trees across all properties.

Trees improve air quality, help with conservation, and more!

LED Lighting

At 1st Lake Properties, we use LED lights which are 80% more efficient than traditional lighting & use less energy.

Less energy usage = a more positive effect on the environment!

Storm Water Management 

Stormwater management reduces the runoff of rainwater in streets & lawns by regulating the collection, storage & movement of stormwater.

We have taken measures to recycle stormwater in our sprinkler systems and lawn care maintenance.

Energy Efficient Appliances 

We use Energy Efficient Appliances across our apartments.

They use technology that is less energy intensive & reduces the amount of electricity used per product.

Reduce Paper Usage

We are actively trying to reduce our paper consumption by providing more paperless options including; online housing & employment applications, work orders, rent payments & more.

We also print on recycled paper!
