King Khalid Military City is a new city constructed in a desert area of Saudi Arabia. An entire landscape had to be created for this environment. Pine & Swallow carried out soil, water, and horticultural analyses for development of the city and provided specifications for a laboratory and landscape testing program, an on-site field station, and a plant nursery. Pine & Swallow also provided analysis of artificial groundwater conditions due to extensive proposed irrigation and design of a subsurface drainage control network.
