This garden was planted in August 2008. It is located at the entrance to the meadow from the main parking lot at the edge of the sycamore sinkhole. We had to accommodate a lot of runoff coming off of one of our parking lots, so we created a dry stream bed with a perforated pipe amidst the decorative pea gravel to help collect and redirect runoff down into the existing sinkhole, where the water naturally flows. We’ve selected various ornamental grasses and perennials, focusing on many native varieties including goldenrods, garden phlox, echinacea and joe-pye weed.
