Landscape plans were developed for all of the demonstration gardens. Each garden has a mixture of various perennials, shrubs, trees and grasses which provide homeowners an idea of how plants would work together in their home garden. These gardens were prepared and are maintained using Earth-Kind® principles.
The native soil in this is area is Houston Black Clay. The soil was amended with 3” of fully aged vegetative compost. Three inches of native hardwood mulch is maintained to help conserve moisture, moderate soil temperatures and deter weeds. In addition, 3” of expanded shale was added to the Circular Garden and the North Gate Entrance Gardens.
These gardens include:
North Gate Entrance gardens
Myers Park Event Center Office garden
