Revitalized Median Garden

Revitalized Median Garden

Designed by Austin Eischeid in 2019, our low maintenance, high impact Revitalized Median Garden runs between the parking lot of our main office building and the gravel roadway leading to our pick-up yard. The garden showcases tough and resilient plants, some of which have been around for a long time, and uses them in new ways.

This new take on a traditional median planting incorporates interplanted and diverse design for this commonly overlooked, but highly visible, landscape feature. Despite the more complex design, this garden is still low maintenance, as you would see in a typical median planting.  Plants are cut back with hedge or string trimmers in spring and receive limited supplemental irrigation throughout the season.
