Grounds staff have sprayed the turf in the median and you should see the grass turning brown. In a couple of weeks, the turf will be removed and work will begin on retrofit of the irrigation from spray to drip. The Arboretum staff has prepared a list of plants to be considered as CPCR Landscape Architects begin the design. Watch for heavy equipment in November!
Below is a photo of to show you just how large this project is. The medians being converted to a low-water, low-maintenance landscape stretch from Russell Blvd. to Garrod Drive. For more information about this conversion to a low-maintenance, low-water, regionally-appropriate landscape, see our previous post here.
