Post Construction Visit (Boys & Girls Club)

The plants at the Boys & Girls Club have not yet had time to grow to their full size, having been planted last fall, however they are doing well.  It normally takes about 3 years for planted beds to become established, at which point the plantings will fill out and take on a massed appearance. This provides a sweeping layered aesthetic, softening the front of the building.  The rain garden is in good shape and functioning well as a catchment basin for stormwater runoff from the surrounding landscape and impermeable surfaces.  The plantings will provide a good site-line when they grow to maturity without blocking the building.  The plants also fit within the context of the surrounding landscape and the style of the building itself.  This is a really functional and enjoyable design overall!
