This project included a mile of landscape improvements to Golden Valley Parkway. Plant species of a variety of colors, textures, sizes, and branching structures were chosen to improve the experience for drivers as they hurry through town, while providing interest and variety for slower moving pedestrians and cyclists. Trees were selected on criteria first and foremost related to traffic safety and appropriateness for the location. Irrigation systems were designed with bubbler and a non-potable water source, easing the demand for water on the City’s potable water supply.
