North Riverwalk received new landscaping last week. Lee Willingham, landscaping department head said he removed old jasmine, turf and trimmed oak trees to include a new landscaping plan to refresh the area. He said the department installed new irrigation, sod and plants tying in to South Riverwalk which was completed last spring.
“It’s important to tie it all together to flow throughout the city. People will see the same plants on Highway 90, Willing Street, City Hall, Sanders Street Sports Complex and some of the same will be visible in the upcoming median project on Highway 90,” said Willingham.
Plants and flowers used in the project: red drift roses, flax lily, society garlic, breeze grass, variegated ginger, (firepower) Nandinas, (shishi) camellias, muhly grass, Miscanthus grass, dwarf Japanese Yew, Podocarpus, tree form tea olive, and celebration Bermuda sod.
