Planting Plan for the Infill Housing Development Project

All raised flow-through planters are planted with a grass/sedge mix.  The look of the grasses coming from the planters resembles the old well, which was existing on site but removed in the design.  In this manner, the design retains the spirit and feeling of the old water well in a manner which is uniform throughout the entire site.  All other plant materials were chosen due to their aesthetic appeal because of texture contrasts, others were chosen to ensure different flower and leaf color alterations throughout the year.  Plant materials have also been used throughout the design to define space.  Overall, I was pleased with the planting design scheme.
