Sustainability Garden at Allen Gardens

1374209_10151680947843017_1613710544_nThe Sustainability Garden,which will demonstrate rain, meadow and xeriscape gardens, nears completion with the boardwalk finished yesterday. This elevated walk, made of TimberTech composite, was a concept I came up with two years ago. Accurate Custom Creations from Waunakee put my vision into reality and exceeded my expectations. Tuesday 4-6″ of a 3/4″ clean quartzite gravel will be spread as the surface substrate, around 1,000 perennials and about that many bulbs are ready for planting immediately thereafter. This really helps cap off a good year at the Gardens. Funded by a Stanley Smith Horticultural grant.  For more images check our Facebook Page
