ELMHURST TOWNHOME PROJECT – wildlife habitat, rain garden, permeable paths, native plants

 

Elmhurst townhome Wildlife habitat natie plants

Homeowner’s existing prairie garden was integrated with a new landscape adding more wildlife habitat and infiltration with a rain garden. Garden sweeps around existing native Hackberry tree, and all around front and back entrances, eliminating most of the lawn. Permeable paths throughout landscape invite homeowners and neighbors to explore, especially children, since this garden is accessible to all.
