Brook Run update

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Sod removal is complete for almost all the homes in the neighborhood! A couple properties required a stone retention wall due to the slope of the yard, and those are being completed today. Tilling of the gardens will happen Thursday and Friday. Planting will start next week. Thanks to all the residents for their patience and enthusiasm! Thanks to our landscaper (Jim Roberts of Watershed Organic Lawn Care and his crew) for all their hard work!

The installation of the rain gardens in the Brook Run neighborhood are starting soon! The properties will be marked and outlined on May 10th, and excavation will begin May 17th. The installations should take roughly 2 weeks, depending on weather. After the residential rain gardens collecting downspout rain water are complete, the implementation of the gardens in the right-of-ways to collect road drainage will begin. We will keep this site updated with photos as the project progresses!
