Rain Gardens Boost Wash. Stormwater Control

Clark County residents in Washington State were initially skeptical of adding more than a dozen new rain gardens in one neighborhood, which are meant to ease the burden on a nearby stormwater pond that failed in 2009.

The Great Wall of Fort Lincoln

Located in Washington DC's Fort Lincoln neighborhood, the Dakota Crossing project included five wall segments totaling 21,000 square feet to support the 42-acre retail project. On the 28-foot high hill, the contractor planted one plug in each brick module. The plant material included: Virginia Bluestem, Muhly Grass, and Fountain Grass plants. This material was chosen for its high evapotranspiration characteristics and aesthetic appeal. In preparation for the plant material, workers packed in more than 800 cubic yards of specialized bioretention planting soil.

The Ecological Landscaping Association is a nonprofit, member-based organization made up of professionals, businesses and pro-active community members who believe in using landscape practices that are environmentally safe and beneficial.

Mature Trees Now Define John F. Kennedy Memorial Park, Cambridge, Mass.

In 1987, this gateway to Memorial Park in Cambridge, Mass. from JFK Street and Memorial Drive suggested it was the Charles Hotel entry. This is the same entry in 2012.
