Lakewood Ranch: The Largest Green Community in America
For nearly a century, Schroeder-Manatee Ranch, the landowner and parent company of Lakewood Ranch's developer, has been committed to the protection and preservation of the natural resources here. Our heritage of care has led to our being designated the largest master-planned community not only in Florida but also in the country.
Style, convenience and comfort are never sacrificed when building green. In fact, by building homes that are more efficient and protecting the land that surrounds them our residents are guaranteed an environmentally richer, healthier, more economical life.
Visit our Green Gallery at the Lakewood Ranch Information Center to learn more about the many advantages of green building.
To seamlessly integrate the unspoiled beauty and tranquility of the natural world with the active lifestyles of Lakewood Ranch residents, more than 150 miles of trails wind their way through the 3,500 acres set aside as lakes, nature preserves and parks for recreation, relaxation and a place where residents can enjoy the wonders of their unique surroundings.
Here, you're as likely to run into a sandhill crane, otter or fawn as you are your next-door neighbor. That's because we've taken every possible measure to protect and preserve their natural habitats and ensure their continued presence in the future.
The Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club's membership in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses is another example of our commitment to the environment.

Green building reconciles the need to preserve and protect the environment with building high quality, healthy and energy efficient homes. While never comprising on style.
Conserving resources, using energy and water more efficiently means your home will cost less to maintain and operate. And offer higher resale values.
Better indoor air quality and safer living spaces mean healthier homes.
